Altair Recognized as Top Workplace in 2014

Altair was recognized as one of the 2014 Top Workplaces in Michigan by the Detroit Free Press for the third year in a row! Companies and organizations with at least 50 employees are eligible for nomination in the Detroit Free Press Top Workplaces competition. This effort is managed by WorkplaceDynamics all across the country through partnerships with leading regional publishers to administer employee surveys and assess company cultures and work environments.

Ranked #10 out of 25 large companies in southeast Michigan, Altair is very proud to have won this award in 2014. Without a doubt, talented people are what shapes Altair’s unique, diverse, and innovative culture. A close and collegial community, Altairians come together often in support of great causes and to contribute to local communities in need. Many say that Altair is more like an extended family than just a place to work.

A huge note of thanks goes out to the Detroit Free Press for recognizing so many outstanding Detroit-area companies.  We are honored to have made the list.  Moreover, thank you to each and every Altair employee for making 2014 another memorable one for the company.  You are what makes this company thrive; best wishes for every personal and professional success in 2015!
