McGraw Wentworth: Tom McGraw and William Wentworth
2009 revenue: $12 million
McGraw Wentworth consults on and brokers employee group benefit packages with organizations in the Michigan area.
Right beyond the front door of McGraw Wentworth's offices sits a plaque that quotes Aristotle: 'We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.' Each quarter, a deserving employee is presented with the company's 'Excellence Is Our Habit' Award, which includes a certificate and a cash bonus. Employee appreciation doesn't stop there—ice cream sundae parties, smoothie bars, and group trips to Dave & Buster's reward the staff for its commitment to the business.
