DETROIT, Aug. 5, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation, the world's leading mainframe-dedicated software company, today announced it has achieved recognition as one of the "101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For" in Metro Detroit. The Michigan Business and Professional Association (MBPA) administers the award, which honors leading companies that deliver exceptional human resource practices and an impressive commitment to their employees.
"Compuware has undergone an incredible transformation over the last year, and through it all, we've remained committed to cultivating a performance-driven culture where our employees can deliver innovation that exceeds our customers' expectations, and at the same time, experience tremendous opportunities for personal and professional growth," said Compuware CEO Chris O'Malley. "This is an incredibly exciting time for Compuware and this recognition validates our belief that we are well on our way to becoming the best mainframe software partner for the next 50 years."
Nominated companies completed a human resources questionnaire, and their employees took a confidential survey about their work environment. An independent research firm evaluates each company's entry based on key measures in various categories. The categories include compensation; benefits and employee solutions; employee enrichment, engagement and retention; employee education and development; recruitment, selection and orientation; employee achievement and recognition; communication and shared vision; diversity and inclusion; work-life balance; community initiatives; and strategic company performance.
Compuware provides numerous perks and benefits, including: company-paid life and disability insurance, comprehensive medical and dental plans, flexible work arrangements and 401k. The company actively works to support its employees' work/life balance by offering resources such as worldwide wellness programs, dependent- and elder-care reimbursement accounts, an employee referral program, and much more. Employees who work at or visit Compuware's Detroit headquarters enjoy an onsite gourmet cafeteria; commuter assistance program; state-of-the art wellness and child development centers; a physician and chiropractor office; physical therapy and dry cleaning services as well as access to onsite retailers and restaurants.
"'The Metro Detroit 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For' award showcases the companies that most epitomize better business, richer lives and stronger communities," said Jennifer Kluge, MBPA president. "It's fantastic that with the tremendous change that Compuware has undergone over the last 12 months, employees wholeheartedly believe Compuware is a marquee employer."
