DYNAMIC COLLABORATION

We celebrate out-of-the-box ideas. We value different perspectives and a can-do attitude. Our success is driven by the ability of all departments to work together to ensure that we’re all focused on one thing: serving our community.

OUR TALENT

We pride ourselves on being an equal-opportunity employer, seeking job candidates from culturally and racially diverse backgrounds. In addition to their life experiences, our staff come armed with connections in education, government, corporate and small business settings — and we celebrate that.

A BEAUTIFUL WORKSPACE: THE FISHER

We’re enthusiastic about our space inside the iconic, Albert Kahn-designed Fisher Building. Our office puts us in the heart of New Center — an up-and-coming Detroit neighborhood that ensures we are close to the community we serve.

BENEFITS & PERKS

We believe that in order to serve our mission, our employees need a culture that values work-life balance, individual needs and constant learning.

HEALTH CARE

We offer competitive health, vision and dental plans to staffers and their families, along with group wellness and fitness initiatives, to help our employees stake care of their physical and mental well-being.

VACATION

We encourage our staff to rest and recharge. New employees can earn up to 20 vacation days and 11 paid holidays within their first year of employment.

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

We foster growth opportunities. From seminars, conferences and flex spending accounts, we encourage staffers to continue growing their skill sets and fuel their passions.

VOLUNTEER PTO

We value volunteerism, and we walk the walk by providing staff volunteer opportunities, as well as allowing employees to take time to give back to the causes they care about.

RETIREMENT SAVINGS

We help you plan for the future. We offer a 403(b) plan along with retirement planning services so you can work now and relax later.
