Expressing Gratitude Everyday

As we approach this Thanksgiving holiday, I am inspired to reflect on one of our Core Values: Show Gratitude. Although feelings of gratitude are familiar to us all, they can prove elusive when we’re pressured by our hectic day-to-day activities. Even still, gratitude is within our reach and its benefits are endless if we just remember to put it into daily practice. Training ourselves to adopt a grateful outlook as our initial response can be the most constructive habit we ever develop, and the missing link in enhancing company culture.

Expressing gratitude is integral to how Fusion does business.

We are thankful for our customers, who sees us as partners, not simply an outsourced contract manufacturing solution.

We are thankful for our colleagues, who are our biggest champions and freely provide insight and advice despite not having a vested interest in our success.

We are thankful for our suppliers, because establishing and maintaining solid vendor relationships is crucial to customer service, cost efficiency, quality and product development.

Most importantly, we are thankful for our team at Fusion, who are our biggest asset. Creating a positive, productive environment takes effort, and our team hits the mark every day.

The great thing about gratitude is that the benefits can be significant, while the cost remains minimal. It takes only a little time and effort to let someone know that they are appreciated. Naturally, you are grateful for friends or family, but how often does the concept of gratitude and thankfulness get mentioned at your business? Gratitude is a concept so familiar to us that we may underestimate the benefits it brings into our lives or the price we pay for its absence. By expressing gratitude towards our colleagues, employees, vendors and customers, we have managed to create a rewarding company culture.
