Kreg Keesee, Michelman’s chief supply chain and information officer, accepted the award in the “Best Place to Work” category.
Michelman’s award was based on its strong relationship with associates.
“Michelman values are at the core of associate relationships, and a testimony to the company’s success. These values include ‘Integrity, Respect, Success, Collaboration, Curiosity, and Giving,’ and are a direct reflection of the organization and the driving force behind our achievements around the globe,” Michelman President and CEO Steve Shifman said.
Michelman is a global developer and manufacturer of environmentally friendly advanced materials for industry, offering solutions for the coatings, printing & packaging and industrial manufacturing markets. Headquartered in Cincinnati, and with manufacturing facilities on three continents, the company will be holding its 7th Annual Commitment2Community Day, when hundreds of associates leave their offices, labs and email behind for a full day to volunteer their time at a wide variety of locations.
“One of our most important core values is giving. Our staff is comprised of hundreds of generous associates who give freely of themselves, their time, their energy, their knowledge, and their resources,” Shiefman said. “They do so with no expectation of receiving anything in return other than the satisfaction that comes from participating in a successful business and living in a thriving community. In the Tristate area alone, Michelman associates participate in more than 40 non-profits and have volunteered approximately 3,780 hours throughout the year. The genuine embracement of the spirit of Giving makes me proud to have won this particular award at the 2018 MANNY event.”
