ConnexFM, the Multi-Site facilities network, is proud to honor Ulta Beauty with the U.S. Multi-Site Company of the Year Award.
The ConnexFM Annual Awards, chosen by the membership and presented at the recent CONNEX2021 National Conference, honor organizations that have impacted the facilities management industry through innovation, operations, and outstanding work performance within the industry.
“We are incredibly proud of the resilience and collaboration of our teams in supporting the business and each other while we navigated an unprecedented global pandemic,” said Melissa Marria, Facilities Manager, Ulta Beauty. “The new remote environment challenged us to get creative with how we stay connected while maintaining and building upon the culture that we have crafted without the in-person dynamic that we have been accustomed to.”
Serving as a visionary for nearly 30 years, Ulta Beauty demonstrates how investing in the future is essential to building a sustainable organization. Ulta Beauty has committed to reporting on greenhouse gas emissions starting in 2020 in order to identify reduction opportunities and grow our overall sustainability strategy, including robust renewable energy and recycling programs. The Multi-Site organization has been recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Institute for Market Transformation and the U.S. Department of Energy Better Buildings Alliance for their efforts.
“Ulta Beauty, a longtime ConnexFM member, leads the retail industry with their creative store formats, commitment to sustainability and most importantly dedication to their customers,” said Bill Yanek, ConnexFM CEO. “The Multi-Site organization continually moves the facilities management industry forward by building strong Supplier partnerships, customer-centric environments and prioritizing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.”
Additionally, in 2021, the organization announced tangible commitments across five key areas— Amplifying & Investing in Underrepresented Voices, Black-Owned Brands, Guest Experiences, Associate Experiences, Ongoing Learning and Accountability— to ensure all guests, associates, partners, and communities feel connected to and reflected at Ulta Beauty; these efforts reflect an investment of more than 25 million in 2021.
