Firm recognized for workplace culture and employee benefits

Crain’s Detroit Business has announced its top 100 Cool Places to Work Award for 2018, and OHM Advisors is pleased to announce our firm’s ranking at #11 out of 100 Michigan workplaces. The award is given to companies who, according to their employees, go above and beyond in putting a focus on workplace culture. Our firm previously won the award in 2014 and 2016.

“It’s true that we offer ‘cool’ options to our employees like the $75 wellness credit and monthly onsite massages, but those things are just icing,” says Kelly Jackson, Director of Human Resources. “We strive to go deeper than that with our commitment to workforce engagement, rich program offerings for professional development, and maybe best of all, fun company and community gatherings that we’re proud to say are well-attended.”

Winners of the Cool Places award are chosen based upon a combination of information employers provide regarding their companies’ benefits and policies, and confidential employee survey answers about the company’s internal culture and leadership. OHM’ers continue to give our firm high marks for great culture and workplace engagement—a trend that the firm’s leadership is committed to sustaining.

“The best people I can surround myself with are people who think differently,” says President John Hiltz. “Our employees do that every day to make the firm successful. So we are striving to be different, for them.”

OHM Advisors was also chosen this year as one of metro Detroit’s “Best and Brightest Companies to Work For” and remains on the Zweig Group Hot Firm List for the third consecutive year.
