BOSTON, MA — SOLABS, a software company that develops Electronic Quality Management Systems (EQMS) for the Life Science industry, has been named a Commitment to Diversity Award finalist in the 2017 Xconomy Awards.
“It is a great honour to be recognized by Xconomy for our commitment to diversity,” said SOLABS Founder & CEO, Philippe Gaudreau. “It has always been important to me to strive for equal gender representation in our workforce, and because of that I think that our employees feel a stronger connection to the company. While we all share a common passion, automating quality operations, there is one value SOLABS places above all others, respect for one other. Thank you to Xconomy for recognizing what I believe to be one of our greatest assets.”
