GRAND RAPIDS, Michigan — FormulaFolio Investments, LLC is honored to announce that it has been recognized as one of 2018’s “Best and Brightest Companies to Work for in the Nation.”

The “Best and Brightest” programs, created by the National Association for Business Resources (NABR), “identify, recognize, and celebrate the organizations that epitomize the motto of Better Business. Richer Lives. Stronger Communities.”

“We’re proud of the culture, innovation, and business growth that has been created by every member of our team through their everyday actions at work,” said Chief People Officer James Ward. “Everyone on the team is thrilled and humbled to have these efforts recognized at the national level with this outstanding achievement.”

In addition to the “Best & Brightest” award, FormulaFolios’ culture-building efforts have been recognized by the team itself, which gave the company an employee Net Promoter Score (eNPS) of 74.

Founded in 2011 with a mission to disrupt the financial services industry, FormulaFolios has strived to build and strengthen its culture of “Doing Good” to support rapid growth that has brought headcount to almost 100. The company has been able to sustain its growth pace, which has earned it a place on the Inc 500 list of fastest-growing private companies in the nation for three consecutive years, by building a skilled, enthusiastic, and engaged team of mission-aligned individuals.

FormulaFolios makes itself stand out as an attractive employment destination by offering benefits and policies that help and empower team members to Do Good for themselves, their families, and their communities as well as the company. These include flexible working arrangements, ample paid time off including dedicated hours for volunteer work, comprehensive medical benefits package, a fitness allowance, and a profit-sharing retirement plan. The company’s rapid expansion also offers ample opportunities for professional growth as there are always new challenges, projects, and responsibilities to take on.

“In today’s economy, it takes more than competitive compensation and comprehensive benefits to attract top talent,” said Ward. “At FFI, we provide the opportunity to build an impactful career without sacrificing the ability to make an impact in your community. Every member of the leadership team takes great pride in seeing our employees grow as individuals – personally and professionally. It drives us to continue to Do Good by our team, our advisors and our communities.”
