The Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce’s annual Focus on the Future Awards program recognizes the very best of small businesses, startups, nonprofits and diverse businesses across southeastern Wisconsin. In the spirit of the MMAC’s former Future 50 awards program, the organization honors the contributions of these businesses and organizations to strengthen the Milwaukee region’s economy.
The winning companies were announced during a luncheon on Sept. 24 at the Italian Community Center in Milwaukee.
This year’s Focus on the Future Awards were broken down into these categories:
Recognizes companies or organizations improving retention rates, cultivating a cohesive company culture, upskilling employees or with other unique workforce accomplishments.
Recognizes companies or organizations addressing racial disparities, one of the Milwaukee region’s biggest challenges, through the attraction of a diverse workforce and cultivation of an inclusive workplace culture.
