September 24, 2018

Company recognized for commitment to excellent human resources and employee enrichment practices

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – September 24, 2018 – Today, LLamasoft, a global leader in supply chain optimization software and solutions, announced that it has been named to the Metropolitan Detroit’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For list for the sixth consecutive year.

The Best and Brightest Companies to Work For competition identifies and recognizes organizations that demonstrate a commitment to excellence in their human resource practices and employee enrichment. Organizations are evaluated based on categories such as communication, work-life balance, employee education, diversity, recognition, retention and more.

“At LLamasoft, our employees’ personal and professional development is at the core of our operating culture,” said Razat Gaurav, CEO of LLamasoft. “We believe that our people are our competitive advantage and we work every day to ensure we are creating an exciting and fun environment that inspires LLamas to be constantly innovating and creating value for our customers.”

LLamasoft offers a variety of employee benefits and perks, including four weeks of vacation, maternity and paternity leave, remote work flexibility and monthly employee events like ice cream bars, wine tastings and fitness classes, as well as celebrations such as Bring Your Kids to Work Day, National Running Day and Supply Chain Professionals Appreciation Day, which was celebrated in May.

“People are the key to LLamasoft’s success,” said Craig Wigley, vice president of global employee success at LLamasoft. “We hire great people from all around the world and work to create an engaging, supportive culture that allows them to showcase their talents and innovate. We are truly committed to making sure LLamasoft is a great place to work and are excited to have been included in this list for the sixth time.”

The company also uses a unique performance management and employee engagement tool that empowers the team by offering monthly coaching rather than annual reviews, creating a process of continuous feedback, realistic goal setting and real-time recognition. One of LLamasoft’s core values speaks directly to its company culture and the importance of enabling an optimal work-life balance for all employees: “we work to live, we don’t live to work.”

LLamasoft was recognized for this honor at an event celebrating this year’s winners on September 21, 2018 at the Detroit Marriott in the Renaissance Center.
