Good For Michigan brings together and recognizes companies across Michigan that are making a positive impact on their employees, their community, and the environment. This initiative offers resources and best practices for sustainable and social good. We curate educational programming and convene values-aligned businesses that strengthen our economy, create equitable opportunities for our workforce, and work towards a healthier planet.
Local First launched the Good for Grand Rapids campaign in 2017. Its goal was to recognize companies making a measurable, positive contribution to Grand Rapids. During its first year, roughly 70 businesses took the Quick Impact Assessment. Of these, eight top-scoring businesses were selected to receive the Good for Grand Rapids Awards at the first annual awards ceremony.
Since then, the campaign has grown into a separate, statewide initiative now known as Good For Michigan. Businesses all over Michigan are using the QIA to measure what matters: their impact on the community, their employees, and the environment.
