Celebrating 12.5K strong: Our LinkedIn community grows!

Throughout the year, Microban’s LinkedIn page has become a go-to source for industry information that resonates with the community’s interests. This commitment to knowledge sharing is a testament to Microban’s transparency and has also translated into a substantial increase in LinkedIn followers.

Microban extends gratitude to every member of our LinkedIn community for their continuous support and active engagement.

Empowering through community involvement

Microban not only excelled in technology advancements but also embraced a lasting commitment to community involvement, reflecting our core values as a socially responsible organization. This commitment materialized through active participation in the annual St. Jude’s Charity Walk/Run in Charlotte, NC, where our team ran for a good cause and raised funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. In the fall, Microban employee-owners joined Bags of Hope out of work hours to pack bags of goodies for children and families facing hardships. Additionally, the Huntersville headquarters hosted a series of Expert Speaker sessions, promoting continuous learning and cultural appreciation on topics and events like Juneteenth, work-life balance, and stress management.

As we reflect, the collective impact of these efforts fuels our commitment to further professional development and community engagement and to discover more sustainable solutions.

Thank you for being an integral part of our shared success in 2023. We've achieved great things together and look forward to an even more remarkable 2024.
