For the 3rd year in a row, WSI has been recognized as one of West Michigan’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work for. And we. Are. Excited! (Like, really excited.) We asked ourselves, “What does make WSI such a great place to work?” Is it our weekly guided meditations? Is it our summer and holiday parties? Maybe it’s the endless supply of coffee.
Find out what the WSI staff said below. (Spoiler alert: it all comes down to our company culture.)
