Since the early 1980s, safety has played a prominent role in how we as a company do business. We find that, when they come to work in a connected, protected environment, our associates are able to focus on their roles and thrive in their professional careers. Safety is of foundational importance in achieving this ideal and is a tenant we carefully cultivate on an ongoing basis.
“We strive to be a company where every associate feels empowered, valued and engaged."
Each year, Earth Day is a call to recommit ourselves to caring for the planet we call home. More than 193 countries come together on April 22 to bring awareness to and build support for environmental protection measures.
Color is all around us, sometimes so seamlessly interwoven into daily life that we barely distinguish it as its own attribute. The role of color adds dimension, helps classify or categorize, enables performance or sometimes simply intensifies beauty; yet color is something that adds meaning in any context.
It can be easy for companies to say they are committed to integrity in business, but the power of ethics-in-action stories help to showcase that our word and our actions align in the truest sense. Our recognition as one of the 2019 World’s Most Ethical Companies is an important honor for Milliken as it supports our belief that ethical business practices matter.
Sustainability is a major consideration in today’s global marketplace. From the ability to design and produce eco-friendly products to the tangible improvements an environmentally responsible process can invite, sustainability carries with it a sense of doing right for the environment for the benefit generations to come.
“I wake up excited to go to work each day,” shares Gary “Hawk” Hawkins, a Milliken floor covering research associate, “and this is, I think, the key to being happy with your job for a long time.”
Each year, International Women’s Day recognizes the unique contributions of women to the global community. This day encourages us to consider how a balanced perspective can help create a better world.
It is with tremendous gratitude that we congratulate our associates around the world for their efforts in promoting Milliken as a purpose-based company. Today, Milliken was named among the 2019 World's Most Ethical Companies® by Ethisphere Institute, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices.
Our associates are the driving force behind all we accomplish at Milliken. From their passion for making a difference each day to their commitment to our values-based approach to business, Milliken associates bring a wide range of thoughts, ideas and perspectives to move our company forward. The range and breadth of diversity, whether of experience, background or skill set, enhances our ability to bring to market solutions that more effectively solve everyday challenges.
