We are pleased to announce that Austin Benefits Groups has been honored this year as one of Crain’s Cool Places to Work in Michigan. What does it take to be deemed cool? Just see what our team had to say about what makes Austin cool:

Highlights for Austin this year are hosting our first annual mini-golf classic, volunteering with Angel’s Place and Oakland Shelter, participating in several 5Ks, celebrating our Sweet 16, and surprising CEO Dean for his 50th birthday!

Winners were chosen based on the results of a weighted survey of both employees and employers, conducted by Crain’s in partnership with Best Companies Group. Topics covered include HR practices, employee engagement, career development, total rewards and work environment.

“Our emphasis on our employee and client-centered approach is something that we live and breathe every day, it is what we refer to as The Austin Difference.  We believe that our employees and their desire to always do more, to exceed client expectations is what sets us apart,” says Dean Austin, Chief Executive Officer.  “Culture plays a very large role in empowering our team members to always look for innovative approaches to enhance the expertise and service that we provide to our clients.  We are honored to be recognized by Crain’s as a Cool Place to Work, as our employees and culture are at the very heart of everything that we do.”

Austin Benefits Group based in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan is home to over 30 employees. Austin partners with other businesses, large and small, to tackle employee benefits, healthcare reform compliance, and wellness. Our clients and their employees receive personalized attention from dedicated members of the Austin team for year-round support.  Austin believes in providing excellence every day and it is how we strive to ensure our client’s success.
