-High respect for equity and diversity -Concern for environment
For the 30 years I worked for Herman Miller, they have always been a shining example of diversity, equity and inclusion. Unfortunately, Herman Miller's (now MillerKnoll) headquarters is in Zeeland,... MI which is in Ottawa County. The Ottawa county board was recently taken over by a coalition of Christian Nationalists. They have eliminated the Ottawa county office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and changed the county motto from "Where You Belong" to "Where Freedom Rings". You will find great support for inclusiveness within Herman Miller but not so much in the outside community especially in Ottawa county. Other cons: -An "A" on concepts but "F" on execution: Herman Miller likes to over analyze and it can take forever to change the status quo. -Legacy IT supporting critical functions (it's getting replaced but again, slowly) - Knoll's satellite companies were never fully integrated with Knoll corporate thus hindering the Herman Miller & Knoll integration. -too much "Midwest Nice"; sometimes you just have to spit on your hands, slit some throats and raise the Jolly Roger
Hard workers rewarded, continuously improving, great culture.
We can let issues that could be fixed hold us back from time to time.
