multicultureDiversity is reflected in our work environment and marketplace – including ethnicity, race, gender, age, sexual orientation, faith, language, and culture. Akran has offices across Canada and in the United States. We have employees in North American and in international manufacturing and distribution centers, as well as sourcing hubs in Asia. Embracing diversity is part of doing business. It creates an atmosphere of inclusion and appreciation, encourages innovation, and supports a better work environment for our employees.

We recognize that our customers are increasingly diverse and have different product needs. Diversity within our employee population enables us to generate the innovation and creativity necessary to better serve their needs.

Employee workshops at Akran address issues such as cultural conditioning; the impact of differences on communication, behaviors, and decision-making; and the dangers of stereotypes and misperception in an increasingly globalized world.
