Farmington Hills, MI (PRWEB) October 25, 2012

Logicalis, an international IT solutions and managed services provider, today announced that the American Society of Employers (ASE), one of the nation's oldest and largest employer associations, honored Mark Jenkins, vice president of Human Resources for Logicalis, at its ninth Annual Summit on October 24th at the Detroit Athletic Club.

Jenkins was selected by a committee of human resource executives from ASE member companies as the outstanding HR executive in the state of Michigan for firms with fewer than 1,000 Michigan employees. “This award is all about recognizing how critical the HR executive's leadership role is in today's workplace,” says Mary Corrado, ASE's president and CEO. “It is all about influencing people at all levels, no matter what their respective roles, to align their own priorities with the overall mission of the organization. The committee found Logicalis' Mark Jenkins to be outstanding in this area.”

“Being a Human Resources executive today requires having a comprehensive view of the business' strategies and understanding that the level of employee engagement that exists within a workforce directly impacts business results,” Jenkins says. “I and my Human Resources colleagues throughout the state strive each day to provide the best foundation and support toward enhancing employee engagement across our respective organizations. I am honored to have been chosen by the ASE selection committee and look forward to continuing to serve Logicalis and its employees with the same vigor that has earned me this recognition.”

“On behalf of Logicalis, I would like to thank the ASE committee for its consideration of Mark, and to congratulate Mark Jenkins on a job well done. Mark's immeasurable contribution to Logicalis' success has had a profound impact on the company's growth and expansion over the past decade and will continue to be a critical factor in Logicalis' future accomplishments as well,” says Vince DeLuca, CEO of Logicalis US.
