The Wisconsin Job Honor Awards, an initiative aimed at recognizing Wisconsinites who have overcome barriers to employment, recently announced its top honorees for 2017. MEC was honored in the employer category for our commitment to hire disadvantaged candidates, including people with criminal convictions and developmental disabilities. MEC has found success partnering with the Wisconsin Department of Corrections work release program, among other initiatives.

The awards were presented on Wednesday, November 29 in Madison, WI during the Future Wisconsin Summit hosted by Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce (WMC). Several hundred Wisconsin business leaders assembled to witness the ceremony, in which biographical videos described honoree efforts to win life-changing jobs.
