Ghafari Wins Crain’s Detroit Business “Excellence in HR” Award
Ghafari is thrilled to announce that our Human Resources team has won Crain’s Detroit Business’ “Excellence in HR” award!
Winners of the annual award are selected by Crain editors and a judging panel of experienced HR professionals and former “Excellence in HR” award winners. Ghafari was recognized in the award’s “overall excellence” category honoring HR teams that drove significant business results in 2022.
Even amid the continued challenges and uncertainties associated with a volatile global economy, Ghafari earned record-high revenues in 2022 – an accomplishment that would not have been possible without the efforts of our HR team. In a difficult recruiting environment, our HR group onboarded ~150 new team members with highly specialized skillsets in architecture and engineering. They also developed and deployed new strategies to enrich the work experience at Ghafari and limit employee attrition.
“We could not thrive as an organization without the enormously talented professionals on our team – and we could not nurture and grow this team without the dedicated members of our Human Resources group,” said Ghafari President + CEO Kouhaila Hammer. “Our HR team is deeply committed to helping our employees succeed. They demonstrate care and compassion in all that they do, ensuring that our employees feel supported, motivated, and able to grow.
“As our work environment has evolved dramatically in the last three years, our HR team has quickly adapted our practices and policies to reflect the organization we are today: a team that may be more distributed physically but is no less connected and driven by a shared mission.”
