GreenStone Earns National Honor as One of the Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® 

The National Association for Business Resources (NABR) has named GreenStone Farm Credit Services one of the Best and Brightest Companies To Work For® in the country. This marks the third year GreenStone has earned this honor at the national level, also taking home an award in 2012 and 2014, in addition to regional recognition in 2011 and 2012. 

The 2015 winning companies were assessed by an independent research firm which reviewed a number of key measures relative to other nationally recognized winners. Key measures included: compensation, and benefits, employee engagement and retention, education and development, diversity and inclusion, work-life balance and strategic company performance, among others. GreenStone staff also participated in an employee engagement survey as part of the application process, which measured how meaningfully and personally connected they are to their work and to GreenStone. 

Beth Barker, chief human resources officer for GreenStone said that the company’s focus on people is one of the main reasons it continues to be recognized at this level.  “We focus on creating an environment that fosters productive and positive relationships in the workplace,” Barker said. “High levels of employee engagement create strong retention rates, and also strong customer satisfaction. Our overall success is directly related to the positive and meaningful relationships our staff builds with our customers. This honor once again shows that we are moving in the right direction as a company – both in business and in corporate culture.”

“Nationally recognized award recipients keep innovative human resource initiatives at the forefront of their company culture and make it a priority to consider their workforce as an essential aspect in their company success. Our Association is proud to recognize and honor these winning companies for this impressive achievement,” said Jennifer Kluge, NABR president. 

GreenStone employs approximately 500 people across 36 branch locations in Michigan and northeast Wisconsin.
