Fusion OEM celebrated being among the companies that were named to the 16th annual Daily Herald Business Ledger's Annual Best Places to Work in Illinois program. Winners were ranked based on a written survey of the company and interviews with a sampling of its employees. We originally applied for the award to get a low-cost outside source to benchmark where we were and to identify opportunities for improvement. Rather than hire a HR Consultant, we wanted a simple and relatively inexpensive method to sample genuine feedback from our team. Results from this thorough employee sample confirmed what we already knew: employee engagement is the fuel that drives the value of our company. The 74 companies winning the award enjoyed a 91 percent employee engagement rate, according to Best Companies Group President Peter Burke.
Keynote speaker Tony Lepore, Director of Brand Strategy at Shaker Recruitment Advertising & Communications, identified four areas of employer branding that can help companies capitalize on winning this award:
- Thinking differently
- Knowing what your ideal candidate looks like
- Measuring employee performance
- Not being afraid to disrupt the status quo
"If we're not actively working to elevate the brand, we tend to work against it," he stated.
Forward thinking companies like Fusion OEM are implementing innovative solutions that enhance our recruitment and retention initiatives. A healthy work environment has kept us competitive and prepared for scaling the business according to customer demand. This environment is cultivated by our dedicated Management Team – they are the decisive factor in winning the hearts and minds of our employees. As the global demand for talented manufacturing employees becomes stronger than ever, this commitment and more necessary than ever.

Workplace wellness programs are becoming more popular as companies search for ways to reduce their costs and improve their bottom line. They provide the company with strategic advantages by investing money in a program that brings them high returns in the form of better performing workers, lower absenteeism and health care expenses. At Fusion OEM, we provide employees with the benefit of working in an environment that places a high value on wellness. Some of our
Fusion’s emphasis on employee health and wellbeing plays a large role in our creation of innovative compensation and benefits strategies. Employees are the most valuable assets to any company. Therefore, their welfare has a direct impact on our success. By providing workers with these services, Fusion OEM manages to improve both wellbeing and job satisfaction, as well as raise retention rates.
