Vinotemp®, the leading wine storage solutions and appliance provider, today announced the VinCave™ Wine Cellar 200 has been recognized as one of Meredith Corporation’s Beautiful Kitchens & Baths magazine’s 30 Most Innovative Products for 2020. Selected by the editors of the Luxury Home Design Group, the products featured in the coveted list were chosen for their ability to combine clever function, sophisticated style, and cutting-edge technology—the VinCave was selected for its unique, modular design and ability to efficiently cellar up to 200 bottles of wine underground.
“The smartest products are the ones that make the most sense for the way we live, work, and entertain in our homes,” says Samantha Hart, Executive Editor, Luxury Home Design Group. “Our winning products simplify tasks and deliver beauty and functionality where it’s needed most.”
Engineered to utilize the cooler, consistent temperatures found underground to properly cellar over sixteen cases of wine without coolants and without sacrificing floor space, the stainless-steel VinCave Wine Cellar 200 features a walk-over glass covering and a push-button elevation function which raises the wine collection above ground for easy access. This environmentally-friendly, efficiently-engineered design requires the cellar be installed on a flat floor surface at either ground or basement level.
“It’s an honor to be recognized among the 30 Most Innovative Products for 2020 because it highlights Vinotemp’s commitment to offering products that enhance the design aesthetic and functionality of wine storage,” states India Hynes, CEO of Vinotemp. “From cellar capacity to technology and visual aesthetics, we are dedicated to pushing the envelope in wine storage design and the VinCave Wine Cellar 200 is a perfect example of this.”

Shaw Industries Ranks Among Forbes’ List of America’s Best Employers for Diversity 2020

Shaw ranks on Forbes Best Employers for Diversity

Shaw’s efforts to foster an inclusive and diverse corporate culture include a wide array of initiatives geared toward associates at all levels and roles within the company.

DALTON, Ga (PRWEB) January 21, 2020
For the second consecutive year, Forbes Magazine has recognized Shaw Industries Group, Inc.’s (Shaw) commitment to promote a corporate culture of diversity and inclusion by naming Shaw as one of “The Best Employers for Diversity.”
In collaboration with analytics firm Statista, Forbes identified The Best Employers for Diversity through an independent survey of 60,000 U.S. employees working for companies employing at least 1,000 people within their U.S. operations. The evaluation was based on four criteria, with the 500 companies receiving the highest total scores selected as the “The Best Employers for Diversity 2020.” Criteria included:
Direct recommendations from employees regardless of age, gender equality, ethnicity, disability, LGBTQ+ and general diversity concerning their own employer.
Indirect recommendations: participants were given the chance to evaluate other employers in their respective industries that stand out either positively or negatively with regard to diversity.
Diversity among top executives / board: Based on extensive research an index was built based on the share of women who fill top executive or board positions.
Diversity Engagement Indicators: Indicators of objective and publicly available diversity information (e.g. existence of a management position responsible for diversity, proactive communication of diverse company culture) were taken into account. Statista researched these indicators for each company using publicly available company information.
“Shaw’s success is dependent upon our people. Our ability to leverage their unique talent and perspectives, as well as creating a sense of openness and belonging, is the biggest driver contributing to our diverse and inclusive culture,” said Mike Fromm, chief human resources officer at Shaw. “This culture encourages associates to share diverse perspectives and ideas to better understand our customers and their needs and to look at market opportunities and challenges from a variety of points of view, allowing for greater innovation and growth.”
Lucia Cook, corporate diversity and inclusion leader at Shaw, stated, “Shaw’s efforts to foster an inclusive and diverse corporate culture include a wide array of initiatives geared toward associates at all levels and roles within the company. By committing to creating an environment where associates feel a sense of belonging and encouragement to bring their unique backgrounds and experiences to the table, we are able to uncover innovative solutions that spark growth, both in our people and our business. Inclusion in this ranking from Forbes is evidence of the high priority we place on this commitment.”
The Shaw Way, a multi-faceted strategy touching all aspects of business enterprise-wide, was developed around the company’s talent competency model, which drives the leadership imperatives necessary for
-more-success. The model is aligned with all talent processes from selection and performance management to leadership development and recognition. Demonstrating inclusive leadership is a key talent competency expected at every level of the organization.
Shaw’s diversity and inclusion efforts are continually shaping new talent acquisition and retention practices to reduce unconscious bias in the hiring and promotion process, including associates from all backgrounds in key business decisions, and educating its associate base on cultural fluency.
In addition to ongoing training and education, key initiatives include:
Shaw’s Supplier Diversity Policy helps make a positive difference in the communities it serves by providing all suppliers with equal access.
Associate-led Resource Groups (ARGs) drive engagement within the company by connecting associates with both similar and different perspectives. Open to all Shaw associates, ARGs focused on the needs and interests of women, Hispanic and Latino, Black and multicultural, veterans, LGBTQ+ associates and allies, and sales have connected thousands of associates with networking and professional development opportunities.
Shaw formed the first bilingual Toastmasters group in Georgia.
Shaw partners with Project SEARCH to offer an internship program for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Future Workforce Development efforts partner with community and educational programs focused on STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) skills and career opportunities. Shaw has a number of programs keenly focused on showcasing STEM careers to underrepresented populations through mentorship, coaching and skills training.

Apeks Supercritical is among the very few entities in the legal cannabis industry where employee benefits, and incentives meet or exceed standards set by large mainstream American employers, according to mg Magazine’s 2019 list of Top 50 Cannabis Employers.

We wanted to create a workplace with a family feel that would encourage as much collaboration from our entire team as possible,” said Apeks founder and General Manager Andy Joseph who built the company with his wife and fellow engineer, Kristen Joseph.
“We’re proud to be recognized as one of the top employers in the cannabis industry. Our success is a testament to the hard work and innovation of our entire team,” said Kristen Joseph, who serves as the company’s Director of Quality.
Among the perks and benefits offered by this year’s honorees are comprehensive insurance plans; health-and-wellness programs; flexible working hours; generous paid time off, including for volunteer work and parental leave; profit sharing; team-building activities; and commitment to social and environmental causes. Honorees range from single-office operations employing as few as twenty workers to multinational corporations employing hundreds.
“This year’s honorees set a high bar not only for cannabis, but for other industries, as well,” said Darren Roberts, chief executive officer for mg’s parent company, CANN Media Group. “Each company on the list realizes valued employees and communities make a significant contribution to their success.”
mg Magazine’s staff and advisors annually evaluate hundreds of nominations from all sectors of the industry, researching public and private resources and confidential employee statements to narrow the list to those that best demonstrate exceptional commitment to corporate social responsibility, workplace culture, and employee satisfaction.
