DETROIT – August 30, 2005 – Brogan & Partners was named one of 60 "Cool Places to Work" in Michigan in a first-of-its-kind competition jointly held by Crain's Detroit Business and the Grand Rapids Business Journal. In the 1-50 employee category Brogan & Partners rated number 1.

"The Mystery Trips, Monday Morning Manicures, the agency atmosphere and all the other life/work-balance benefits provided to the employees are all ways to build camaraderie, happiness, and most importantly, productivity," said Marcie Brogan, managing partner of Brogan & Partners.
"Productive employees are the key to running a lean and successful business." Brogan & Partners and the other 59 companies appear in the Aug. 29 editions of both publications.

An additional report on semi-finalists for the competition appears online at www.crainsdetroit.com.

Selection was based both on employee nominations and on numerical scores on a survey created by Southfield-based American Society of Employers, a membership organization that collects workplace data and offers training in human resource issues. Points were awarded based on responses to individual questions. Total survey scores were then derived by totaling the weighted scores in eight categories.

The 60 companies have "created work environments that attract and retain quality workers, especially younger workers," Crain's Publisher Mary Kramer said.

"It's very clear that employees prize a workplace that recognizes a balance between 'work' and 'life,' as well as one that offers training and opportunities to advance."

The "cool places" effort garnered nominations from employees who were asked to succinctly state why they liked working for their employer. More than 400 people nominated their workplaces. When duplicated nominations were culled, 285 companies statewide were nominated, and 205 executives completed an exhaustive on-line survey to provide an objective benchmark of how companies handled work/life initiatives, talent management, organizational communication, total rewards, corporate citizenship and leadership, work environment and recruitment activities.

The two business publications will host an awards luncheon Sept. 15 in Detroit to honor the companies, featuring Michigan's First Gentleman, Daniel Granholm Mulhern. The luncheon is being held at the International Conference and Banquet Center in the Antheneum Hotel, 1000 Brush St. in Greektown. Tickets for the luncheon are $35.
