NORTHEAST WISCONSIN – Two companies with operations in the 18-county New North region – CLA (CliftonLarsonAllen LLP) and Wisconsin Aluminum Foundry (WAF) – were named winners of the 2023 New North Workplace Excellence Award.
Selected from nominated companies through a multi-phase evaluation process, representatives of the two firms were presented with the award at the New North Summit, held last month.

Award submissions were evaluated on two primary criteria: people practices and business practices. 

“The innovative people and business practices of CLA and Wisconsin Aluminum Foundry shined through during the evaluations of the judging committee,” Barb LaMue, president/CEO of New North, said. “We are excited to present both with the 2023 New North Workplace Excellence Award. Their individual approaches to solving current workforce challenges have resulted in increased business success, along with enhanced diversity and inclusion.”

CLA is a professional services firm that provides industry-focused wealth advisory, digital, audit, tax, consulting and outsourcing services. 

It has 130 U.S. locations, including six within the New North region that employs 375 people.

WAF, which has been in existence for 114 years, is headquartered in Manitowoc, employs 780 people and has a self-described niche within the manufacturing space of delivering high-quality, complex custom castings on ultra-short lead times.

As part of the company’s growth strategy, WAF developed a dedicated training center, paired with a bilingual curriculum, to ensure consistent orientation, assimilation and training.
