Armor Protective Packaging® Named to Crain’s Detroit Business Cool Places to Work 2017

Armor Protective Packaging® was named to Crain’s Detroit Business Cool Places to Work 2017.  As a company, ARMOR prides itself on promoting a culture that supports work/life balance. In fact, one of the company’s core values is what it calls “AuFUNtic.”



“AuFUNtic- it’s a made up word!  We want a team that is authentic and has fun. We want them to be the same person that they are at home or in their personal lives as they are here in the workplace,” said David Yancho, Vice President, of ARMOR.  “No stuffy suits allowed.  No boring business decorum. We have a great team of engaged, talented and passionate people that make a difference every day for our customers and each other.”


The Cool Places to Work award is given to 100 Michigan-based companies based on the results of two surveys. In one, employers provide information about their workplace policies, practices, and perks.  In a second survey, employees anonymously answer close to 80 questions designed to identify the company’s strengths and weaknesses and the employee experience as a whole.  Of significant note was ARMOR’s employee engagement score of 93%.  National averages fall between 24-40% and 80% is considered great employee engagement.


“We could not be happier or more honored to receive the Crain’s Cool Place to Work recognition,” said Robin McConnell, President, of ARMOR.  “What really hit home for me is knowing that the confidential feedback provided by our employees aligned with ARMOR’s core values and intent.  It was reassuring to know that we are successfully walking-the-walk and talking-the-talk; that ARMOR employees are valued, appreciated and recognized as the core of our success.”
