Budco started 2004 on a strong foot. Budco received much national attention for its Health Care Dependent Eligibility Verification product. This solution supports organizations as they attempt to control rapidly rising health care benefits costs. In 2004, Budco gained additional national exposure as a featured company in a Human Resources Best Practices series published by CCH, Incorporated, a highly respected publisher of resource material for the business, legal and human resources industries.
Budco was also recognized as an outstanding corporate citizen by the State of Michigan Governor's Office by being selected as a finalist for the Governor's Service Award. This demonstrates that by focusing on the right things, good things will come our way. Budco also received a Community Partnership Award from Goodwill Industries of Greater Detroit for involvement in its Project Work program, which allows Goodwill to assess an individual's vocational skills at temporary jobs in the community. Goodwill's mission is to help people with disabilities and other barriers to employment become independent, self-supporting citizens.
