DETROIT (Nov. 17, 2021) – For the third consecutive year, the Detroit Regional Chamber has been awarded a Top Workplaces honor by The Detroit Free Press. The recognition is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by Energage.

“This achievement belongs to our team members and Board leadership who strive every day to make the Detroit Regional Chamber an employer of choice,” said Sandy K. Baruah, president and chief executive officer of the Chamber. “It is an honor to again be selected among a prestigious group of organizations.”

“Throughout 2021, the Chamber has been a leader in safely balancing in-person and remote work. This award is an acknowledgment of the strong leadership and individual effort it takes from everyone at the Chamber to create a positive and effective work culture,” said Wright L. Lassiter III, president and chief executive officer of Henry Ford Health System and the chair of the Chamber Board of Directors. “It’s always a great honor for an organization to earn an award like this – but in these challenging times, it’s especially significant.”

“In times of great change, it is more important than ever to maintain a connection among employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage chief executive officer. “When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward based on real-time insights into what works best for your organization. The Top Workplaces program can be that positive outcome your company can rally around in the coming months to celebrate leadership and the importance of maintaining an employee-focused culture, even during challenging times.”
