OMS Indianapolis Receives Diversity Award

OMS Indianapolis received special acknowledgment at the 23rd Annual Mayor’s Celebration of Diversity Awards. Over 50 local employers gathered on the morning of May 9th to recognize organizations that support diverse individuals and continuing progress in the community. “Diversity in Workforce” was awarded to O’Neal Manufacturing Services for successfully implementing practices to support workforce diversity within their business.

“We are very proud to receive this award,” stated Federico Fraga, O’Neal Manufacturing Services Regional General Manager. “Having a diverse workforce allows us to share different ideas and experiences to become a better team.”

Organized by the Greater Indianapolis Progress Committee and presented by Indianapolis Mayor, Joe Hogsett, the annual event celebrates local employers who have excelled in the areas of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Awards were developed with specific requirements, including the quality of services delivered by community-based organizations, the impact of youth apprenticeships, good wages and employee support, youth employment, diversity in leadership, and workplace culture.

“We are so lucky to have an organization, from the top down, who supports and encourages us in this realm and even more lucky to have incredible people who support the initiative,” remarked Dawn Pierce, OMS Indianapolis Customer Service Representative and DEI committee member.

O’Neal Manufacturing Services recognizes, respects, and supports the unique characteristics and experiences that have shaped the lives of our employees. The company strives to cultivate an inclusive environment where differences are positively embraced and everyone feels valued, considered, and accepted.
