Ultimation announced today it has been named to Corp! Magazine’s annual Salute to Diversity list, which recognizes organizations and business leaders in Michigan that have instilled diversity and multiculturalism into the very core of their business strategy.
“As we grow, our focus is finding the right people for the right positions to build the best highly functioning, in-tune workforce that we can,” said CEO Jacqueline Canny. “Our customers’ needs are supported through teamwork and cooperation, which is a fundamental part of our culture. We try to make it a fun environment, and although we’re not a large company we try to take advantage of that by being more flexible than larger companies.”
As technologies continue to change and evolve, younger people are key to future growth, Canny said. “We are able to provide an inclusive, upbeat office environment through a combination of our cohesive team members and our physical facilities,” she said. “The automation and machinery industry is going to see a lot of talent retiring in the next 10 to 15 years, and we want to work on growing our younger team members to help fill those gaps.”
Ultimation was honored, along with other winners, at the magazine’s Salute to Diversity event on September 10th at the MGM Grand Detroit and profiled in Corp! Magazine . Representing Ultimation in accepting the award was CEO Jacqueline Canny, Purchasing Manager Dawn Milot and Accounting and Administration Manager, Carol Barker. Canny is among a growing group of Michigan Diversity Business Leaders who are demonstrating the business value of diversity and inclusion.
