Oak Park, MI. (January 3, 2018) – Blvd Suites Corporate Housing has been named to the 2017 list of the Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in the Nation. This honor follows the recognition the global provider of furnished housing received earlier in the year, being named to the winners list of Metropolitan Detroit’s Best & Brightest Companies to Work For.
The Best and Brightest Companies to Work For recognition identifies and honors organizations that lead the way when it comes to establishing an outstanding workplace environment in terms of culture, recognition, training, leadership, inclusiveness, opportunity, perks, and compensation and benefits.
