Evenbound Named One of West Michigan’s 2023 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For®

Kendall | May 19, 2023 | Evenbound

In an era characterized by a rapidly evolving job market and heightened competition for top talent, it’s more important than ever to foster a thriving work environment. Job seekers and existing employees are no longer solely motivated by salary and benefits; they’re looking for a workplace that offers purpose, growth opportunities, and a sense of belonging and camaraderie. 

For as long as we’ve been providing high-value inbound marketing services and end-to-end solutions on HubSpot, we’ve also been intentional about investing in our employees — helping them flourish both in and outside of work. 

All that said…

We're proud to present our award as one of West Michigan's Best and Brightest Companies to Work For®!

This award is evidence of our commitment to creating and sustaining a culture of caring for, empowering, and rewarding our amazing team members.



In the past year or so, our team has grown significantly. We've hired a number of creative and technical experts to support our clients' growth, as well as our own. Throughout this time of change and expansion, we've remained true to our culture and values.

About the Award

How exactly did we achieve this award? The National Association of Business Resources (NABR) has identified many human resources best practices and established benchmarking for companies that are leaders in employment standards. All applicants were assessed and scored on the following categories:

  • Compensation
  • Benefits and employee solutions
  • Creative wellness and well-being solutions
  • Employee enrichment, engagement, and retention
  • Employee education and development
  • Recruitment and selection
  • Employee achievement and recognition
  • Communication and shared vision
  • Diversity, equity, and inclusion
  • Work-life blend
  • Community initiatives and corporate responsibility
  • Leadership, strategy, and company performance

With each of the above criteria in mind, our company stood out among other West Michigan businesses — woohoo! In their words, not ours: 

"Those companies that made the list of Best and Brightest Companies to Work For®, as well as those companies that continue to make the list, are truly remarkable. Given today's need for talent, retention of talent, and the further issues related to the pandemic, these companies have proven they are superior to market conditions. They are elite thinkers and this honor demonstrates their commitment to excellence."

- Jennifer Kluge, President & CEO of NABR and The Best and Brightest Program

And here's what Evenbound president, John Heritage, had to say about this exciting recognition: 

"This award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire team and the culture we've built together. It affirms our belief that when we prioritize employee well-being and growth while fostering an inclusive and supportive environment, we create a foundation for success. I'm excited about the future of Evenbound and the opportunity to learn, expand, and grow together as a team."

- John Heritage, Evenbound President
