Sparked by Milliken Gives, our associates continue to inspire us with their generous and impactful actions within their respective communities. Each of our global facilities organizes volunteer opportunities, and supplies and donation drives to benefit local organizations of their choice. By encouraging our associates to give back in the ways most meaningful to them, we see countless deeds for the betterment of the communities in which we call home.
With Milliken’s inclusion on the 2018 World’s Most Ethical Companies list presented by Ethisphere Institute, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices, we are honored to be recognized for the 12th year among other esteemed organizations globally. It helps validate our progress towards being a transparent and ethically minded company, but it also serves as a charge to continue growing and learning in pursuit of the highest levels of integrity.
The process of exploring, discovering and creating new ways to enhance daily life comes in many different forms – the creativity invited by this challenge introduces limitless possibilities. These possibilities are furthered by the use of research, science, technology, teamwork in the pursuit of meaningful innovations; yet, an often-overlooked element in enhancing daily life can come in the form of color.
Last month, we presented our annual associate recognition program, Milliken Honors, which highlights the everyday champions who are the driving force behind Milliken’s success. Each of our 55 associates recognized inspire us through their actions and values, and as a company, we celebrate their devotion to our community of innovators.
Throughout our company, there are thousands of leaders who help shape the everyday work of Milliken & Company. Their guidance and skills blend together to create an innovative environment where discovery and creativity thrive.
