Ann Arbor, Mich., // PRNewswire // -- Domino's Pizza (NYSE: DPZ), the recognized world leader in pizza delivery, was recently chosen as one of Metropolitan Detroit's 101 Best & Brightest Companies to Work For by the Michigan Business and Professional Association (MBPA). The award honors southeastern Michigan companies that demonstrate exceptional human resources and employee relations practices. The award was presented at a luncheon held Nov. 20 at the Conference and Events Center in Dearborn, Mich. It is the fourth time Domino's Pizza has been selected to appear on the "Best and Brightest" list.
The 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For awards program was established to honor companies that recognized employees as their greatest asset. Winners of the annual award are companies that work with imagination and conviction to create organizational value and business results through their policies and best practices in human resource management.
"Our number one guiding principle is 'putting people first,' and we live by it," said Domino's Executive Vice President of PeopleFirst Patti Wilmot. "Our goal to be the best pizza delivery company in the world cannot be accomplished without a first-rate team. I am extremely proud and honored to be recognized once again for our efforts."
MBPA conducts an extensive evaluation process to determine which companies earn the distinction of being named one of "Metro Detroit's Best & Brightest." Part of the evaluation includes an extensive survey of Domino's recruitment and selection process, recognition and retention programs, communication, diversity and multiculturalism, employee education and development, operating data, compensation and benefits, community initiatives and work-life balance. Additionally, Domino's team members were randomly selected to complete an anonymous and confidential survey to gauge the effectiveness of the company's efforts.
