Bush is CEO of Great Place to Work, the global consulting and analytics firm that produces the annual Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For list, the 100 Best Workplaces for Women list, the Best Workplaces for Diversity list, and dozens of other distinguished workplace rankings around the world.
Driven by a love of business and an unwavering commitment to fair and equitable treatment, Michael joined Great Place to Work as CEO in 2015, bringing 30 years of experience leading and growing organizations. This includes serving as CEO of Tetra Tech Communications, which he grew from $40 million to $300 million in revenues. Michael is a former member of President Obama’s White House Business Council and a founding board member of the private equity seed-fund, Fund Good Jobs, which invests in small inner-city businesses.
Since 2015, Michael has expanded Great Place to Work’s global mission to build a better world by helping organizations create Great Places to Work not just for some, but For All. Under his leadership, the firm has developed a higher standard of excellence that accounts for fair and equitable treatment of employees across demographic groups, as well as executive leader effectiveness, innovation, and financial sustainability.
Michael has led the firm’s migration to a SaaS-enabled survey platform that offers real-time predictive people analytics. This allows leaders to take immediate, targeted action to improve their leadership and financial performance.
His new book, A Great Place to Work For All (2018) outlines the compelling business and social benefits that come from these efforts. He is also a frequent speaker on great workplaces, diversity and inclusion efforts, and the connection to business results.
