Detroit Free Press Names 3-Dimensional Services to Area's Top 30 Employers
In its annual program to promote Detroit area business, the Detroit Free Press has recognized the 3-Dimensional Services Group (Rochester Hills, MI) as one of the metropolitan area’s '2008 Top 30 Workplaces' for medium size firms. To be so named, organizations must first initiate registration procedures and submit corporate profiles, then complete questionnaires regarding operations and logistics information along with employee data. The information is reviewed by a panel of business professionals assembled by the Free Press, and finalist organizations are selected.
With candidate organizations chosen, and in collaboration with employment and retention consultants Workplace Dynamics, surveys are provided to each firm's employees. Categories of the survey include working conditions-physical and mental environment, and flexibility to balance work load and personal life. The second category encompasses pay and benefits-addressing compensation, and if overall benefit packages were relatively good as compared to other high ranking companies in the area and similar industries.
In all categories, 3-Dimensional Services Group employees rated the company high enough to join the list of law and consulting firms, wholesalers, insurance companies, health clubs, advertising and real estate agencies as well as health care organizations-all firms with 151 to 500 employees were eligible in this grouping.
Alan Peterson, vice president of 3-Dimensional Services noted that being named to the list was an honor, and the fact that the high ranking was due to the employees' vote of confidence conveyed in their survey results, for him "was personally rewarding."
"We work in a fast paced, high intensity industry," Peterson said, "producing prototype parts and low-volume production parts under the pressures of time constraints and quality demands, day-in, day-out. This honor validates our entire team's efforts to get jobs done right and on time, all while maintaining a workplace environment we can all be proud of.
