Local Contract Manufacturer Awarded Top Honors For Employee Engagement, Success.

The employees at Fusion OEM couldn’t be happier – but don’t just take business owner Craig Zoberis’ word for it: Fusion OEM has just been recognized as one of Chicago’s 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For by the National Association for Business Resources (NABR), their second year in a row to receive the award after being selected out of hundreds of nominations.

“The selection, recognition and awarding of this year’s companies allows our organization to showcase their best practices. The honorees have clearly demonstrated why each of them would be an ideal place for employees to work,” said Jennifer Kluge, NABR president.

Zoberis feels winning this award doesn’t just mean lower turnover and happier employees – he’s confident that this engaged workforce means bottom-line benefits for Fusion OEM’s private label manufacturing customers.

“Satisfied and fulfilled employees deliver better long-term quality to our clients,” said Zoberis. “Employee engagement is one of the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that we evaluate regularly so that we can deliver more value to our customers.”

To determine the award winners, an independent research firm evaluated each company’s entry based on key measures in various categories, including compensation, benefits, retention, professional development, recruitment, recognition, diversity and work-life balance.

“We have always recruited and developed an engaged workforce at Fusion OEM,” said Zoberis, “and this award for Best and Brightest Companies to Work For validates what our staff members have already known all along. Our customers notice too.”
