ITC received the Most Engaged Workplace award on May 4. ITC was honored in 2016 as one of the Top 50 Companies to Watch from Michigan Celebrates Small Business and as an alumnus of this award was invited to participate in the 2017 awards. Chosen from more than 600 alumni, ITC was selected as the first recipient of the Most Engaged Workplace Award, from Michigan Celebrates Small Business.

The Most Engaged Workplace Award is based on three areas: Commitment to the community, supporting an environment of team work and collaboration, and competitive advantages. At ITC, small contributions can have a big impact on not only the local community but on the attitudes and fulfillment of employees, according to a press release.
Team members are encouraged to express ideas and contribute to their success and that of other team members and the company. The philosophy of sharing is key to the culture as well, with profit sharing bonuses, Star Performer awards, as well as support and understanding of individual’s personal needs and situations. The culture also has a community approach with monthly company organized activities including group lunches and holiday celebrations. ITC also has regular company performance information sharing and celebrating its achievements as a team.
Employees are also supported and encouraged in their volunteer efforts. The employee staffed Sharing and Caring Committee works with all employees, whether it’s for a monetary donation or non-monetary donation of time and talent, to support many diverse needs in the communities.
One of ITC’s core values is to “create an atmosphere of mutual respect and commitment with employees.” The leadership appreciates and promotes listening, respecting and valuing all team members, customers and suppliers. The open and approachable atmosphere at ITC is family oriented and team members are made to feel included in the family.
