LIFT Named One of Michigan’s “Cool Places To Work” for 2020

Today, LIFT was named by Crain’s Detroit Business as one of the “Cool Places To Work In Michigan” for 2020.

The Cool Places to Work in Michigan is a survey and awards program dedicated to identifying and recognizing the area’s best employers and providing organizations with valuable employee feedback.

LIFT is particularly proud of this award considering that our work and our face-to-face interactions were mostly remote for four months during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This did not happen by accident and it did not happen due to the actions of one individual,” said Nigel Francis, Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director, LIFT.  “It happened because of the collective efforts of everyone on our team who remains committed to our mission of driving American manufacturing into the future and our desire to build a national showcase for future manufacturing right here in Detroit.”

LIFT staff members participated in an anonymous survey earlier this year, and the award was announced today at a Crain’s Detroit Business virtual event and will be recognized in a special issue of Crain’s on August 17th.
