The Salvation Army's Divisional Headquarters Named One Of Milwaukee Area's Best And Brightest Companies To Work For



MILWAUKEE COUNTY — The Salvation Army's Divisional Headquarters (DHQ) has been named one of the Milwaukee area's Best and Brightest Companies to Work for in 2018 by the National Association for Business Resources (NABR).

The office is based in Wauwatosa, Wis. Its employees oversee 26 Worship and Community Centers (Corps) and 67 service extension units across Wisconsin and Upper Michigan. Service extension units are branches of The Salvation Army in communities where Corps are not located but service is provided by committees of volunteers.

The award recognizes companies that deliver exceptional human resource practices and an impressive commitment to their employees. DHQ was chosen for this award based on their communication practices, work-life balance, employee education, diversity recognition, retention, and more.

"At The Salvation Army we live by our motto, 'Doing the Most Good,'" said Major Steve Merritt, Divisional Commander for The Salvation Army of Wisconsin and Upper Michigan. "It is a great honor to be among so many companies selected for this award."
