In addition to winning the 101 Best and Brightest Places to Work in Chicago for the third year in a row, this year Fusion OEM won an elite award in the Communication and Shared Vision category. This award is significant because it is based on both anonymous employee feedback as well as sharing what we do here at Fusion everyday via video and written content.
As a contract manufacturer (CM), I know that communicating the vision of the company is an opportunity to invigorate the work force, explain the challenges ahead, and discuss the plan for getting there. One of the many ways in which Fusion can be distinguished from other companies is the manner in which we define our organization’s mission and purpose. Rather than having a mission statement that simply defines the objective of our company, in January of 2013 I created our “Painted Picture”, a very specific vision of what the Company will look and feel like by December 31st, 2015. Fusion’s Painted Picture illustrates our multiple goals customized for clients, employees, company culture, customer service, sales, facilities and leadership structures. The Painted Picture depicts active strategies and connects them to each individual employee. The Painted Picture illuminates where Fusion is today, where Fusion will be by the end of the three year period, and how each employee will contribute to our evolution.
