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.”

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.
