This recognition marks 11 years of consecutive awards Plex has received from the Michigan Business and Professional Association which identifies companies that lead the region in creating a workplace that enables innovation and excellence.

TROY, Mich., September 18, 2019 – Plex Systems, the leader in cloud ERP and MES for manufacturing, today announced it is one of Metropolitan Detroit’s 2019 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For®. This recognition marks 11 years of consecutive awards Plex has received from the Michigan Business and Professional Association which evaluates companies through direct employee surveys to identify companies that lead the region in creating a workplace that enables innovation and excellence.

“We are honored to recognize the efforts of this year’s 'Best and Brightest' companies,” said Jennifer Kluge, President and CEO, Best and Brightest Programs. “These companies have created impressive organizational value and business results through their policies and best practices in human resource management.”

Plex’s inclusion in the “Best and Brightest Companies to Work For®” list was based on an evaluation from an independent research firm. This year’s report shows that Plex outpaced the regional average in nine distinct categories, including competitive compensation, employee engagement, education and career development, recognition, alignment on shared vision and communication, diversity and inclusion, work-life balance, and community initiatives.
