Collaboration, Respect & Support.
Our Guiding Principles
These five principles keep us focused on our top two priorities – our employees and our customers.
Miklos Systems, Inc. was founded in 1993 by Betsie Miklos. Our current President, Roland Burdett, joined in 1995 as the second employee. Since then, we have flourished because of the kind of people we have hired and the company culture we embrace. As our company grows, the breadth of solutions we can offer our customers increases. We have intentionally avoided developing a niche technology and instead have focused on hiring, developing, and retaining employees who are the best in their fields.
Established Guiding Principles
As we grew, we recognized the need to define our company and settled on five Guiding Principles that define us: Technical Excellence, Customer Service, Personal Integrity, Collaborative Culture, and Have Fun. We interview each person we hire for compatibility with these principles. In particular, we seek employees willing to work in a non-competitive company that does not rank employees against each other.
In 2006, we became Employee-Owned and have not looked back since. As a company, we believe the people who have contributed to the success of our company should share in the ownership and benefit from the company’s success. This employee-ownership culture inspires us to be more innovative and to strive for higher customer satisfaction. Immediate access to senior management, a responsive corporate culture, and a streamlined infrastructure are hallmarks of our company.
Formed the Employee Ownership Committee (EOC)
In 2012, we established the Employee Ownership Committee (EOC). The volunteer committee has worked with Miklos leadership to educate all the employees about the ESOP and its role in our culture. Across the year, the EOC provides ESOP training, puts on special events, represents Miklos at national conferences, and is responsible for company communications about employee ownership! Meet the members here.
Held our First “Food for Others” Charity Event
Wanting to support the larger community we share, Miklos held our first annual “Giving Back” charity event in 2017. Sponsored by our Employee Ownership Committee, Miklos employees gathered and assembled over 250 packs of non-perishable foods. We distributed these packs to at-risk children in our local school system who do not have weekend meal options.
ESOP Company of the Year
Miklos was awarded the top honor as “ESOP Company of the Year for 2019”! ESOP judges at the national level selected Miklos from 18 regional winners based on our commitment to employee ownership.
Celebrated our 30 Year Anniversary
In 2023, we celebrated our 30-year anniversary. While our company has changed over the years, we have remained committed to our guiding principles, our customers, and each other. We are excited to see what the future holds!
