For the sixth time overall and fifth consecutive year, we’re celebrating being named one of Metro Detroit’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For. With prior wins in 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015, we’ve continued to strive for excellence in providing our team with the best environment conducive to maintaining a healthy work-life balance, while finding professional growth and success.
Our culture is embodied through a Playbook that illustrates the core values that make up the foundation of every department, meeting, product, and team member. From No Suits, Just Innovation, to Results Faster, we take an inventive approach to molding not only a successful and hardworking team, but one that knows the importance of having fun and being creative.
Creativity is exemplified through our innovative Team Member Success (human resource) methods that are tailored to the unique needs of individual team members. This includes career development programs and mentors that allow team members to continuously build upon their current skills as well as help prepare and develop them for new, larger roles. We enable team members to grow and learn through our training programs, including the Billhighway Academy, in which junior developers are immersed in an intensive multi-month training and mentoring program that exposes them to all critical aspects of the Billhighway ecosystem and allows them to expand other crucial developer skill sets. We don’t just keep the job itself in mind when we look to fit specific needs to a team member, we also keep in mind the importance of work-life balance by providing a positive and healthy atmosphere. With wellness activities including massage, on-site exercise classes such as yoga and kick-boxing, organic fruit and snack options, plus chefs brought in to demonstrate good nutrition and healthy cooking habits, we seek to improve the overall physical and mental well-being of all team members.
“We are honored to once again be named one of the 101 Best and Brightest Companies in Metro Detroit. Our commitment to innovative human resource practices that focus on our team members and what is important to them gleaned through surveys, focus groups, and a collaborative team environment along with a shared passion to do more good, I believe is a testament to our continued success as a 101 Best and Brightest winning company,” said Brenda Gallick, Director of Team Member Success at Billhighway. “We’re thrilled to be recognized for our commitment to building a better workplace.”
The Team Member Success department has gone above and beyond to implement new programs to contribute to our exceptional workplace culture, however what might truly be the defining factor is something that cannot be taught or implemented, but something that comes from within. Our team members share a passion to do more good, give back to their communities, and create positive change. To spread the impact, we’ve provided volunteer opportunities for over ten different charities just in the past year. Our charitable giving programs provide team members and even interns with paid time off to volunteer for a cause that is near and dear to them. Brenda Gallick summed up our formula for success, “I believe the secret is in knowing your people and continuously finding the right mix of what works for your team.”
