After considering several cities, Clearcover selected Detroit to house our customer experience group. Detroit’s resiliency and knack for innovation was evident throughout our search. Detroit at Work has been a wonderful partner by sourcing quality talent, introducing us to other Detroit-based organizations, and providing meaningful guidance on how to navigate Michigan’s abundance of opportunities. We look forward to continuing and expanding the partnership with Detroit at Work in the years to come.
