Award Recognizes the Most Desirable Places to Work in Michigan

Cinnaire was recently selected as a Detroit Free Press Top Workplace 2017. The companies recognized in the Detroit Free Press Top Workplaces program were selected from the results of an employee survey. The survey measured factors such as company leadership, communication, career opportunities, working environment, managerial skills, pay and benefits.

“We are honored to receive this prestigious award from the Detroit Free Press,” said Mark McDaniel, Cinnaire President & CEO. “At Cinnaire, we know our human capital is our most valuable asset. We are committed to providing a workplace environment that promotes companywide opportunities for growth and creativity while celebrating a workforce that reflects the communities we serve. Being selected as a Top Workplace affirms our success in creating an environment that supports a work-life balance while providing opportunities for growth.”

Cinnaire provides all full-time employees with an unlimited paid time off policy, weekly organic fresh fruit deliveries, on-site fitness center at company headquarters, company paid cell and wireless services, an employee wellness program, on-site dry-cleaning pickup and delivery and a comprehensive benefits package. An open-door policy and regularly scheduled lunches with the company CEO promote transparency and establishes open communication. Employees recently launched Cinnaire Cares, a companywide staff funded and driven charitable program that provides every team member an opportunity to make an impact by donating to staff nominated charities. Company holiday parties provide opportunities for Community Giving. The Cinnaire Staff Engagement Committee provides all staff with an open forum for generating and discussing ideas, initiatives and insights that improve professional lives and company culture. Additionally, Cinnaire was recently selected as a host employer for the Detroit Revitalization Fellows, a program of Wayne State University.

Cinnaire maintains a diversity and inclusion policy to provide an environment that empowers the authentic expression of diverse voices and celebrates a workforce that reflects the communities the company serves.
