Fusion Awarded Chicago’s 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For

This national competition identifies and honors organizations across the country and within the region that display a commitment to excellence in their human resource practices and employee enrichment programs.  Organizations are nominated and assessed based on their communication, work-life balance, employee education, diversity, recognition and retention practices.

In response to Fusion winning this prestigious award, Human Resource Rock Star, Stacy Hayes, replied “Receiving this award and recognition is motivating because it validates, on a regional and national level, what Fusion employees already know; Fusion is the best place to work!”

Prioritizing the culture within Fusion through emphasis on factors leading to increased employee engagement distinguishes Fusion as an industry leader. “Due to a variety of factors, the evolving manufacturing industry has not recently been a front runner in the realm of employee satisfaction” explains Hayes. Massive lay-offs and staffing cuts have taken a toll on employee morale within the industry of manufacturing. Fusion’s determination to focus on the employee and take innovative action in the workplace has resulted in increased employee engagement, retention, productivity and customer satisfaction.

Hayes points out that Fusion’s all-employee morning huddles, daily recognitions, wellness programs, and fun family-focused events have been instrumental in building a cohesive team and creating an incredibly positive work environment. The positivity comes from the fact that Fusion employees are smart, creative and hard working. They share a mutual respect for each other and celebrate personal and professional successes.  Fusion has created and sustained an environment in which employees are happy to come to work with a can-do attitude and work professionally and productively together to achieve and exceed our goals.
