At the end of 2018, we asked all employees to bring positive feedback and suggestions for improvement to our annual meeting. The feedback was outstanding! Then, we kicked off 2019 by asking office employees to do the same for our staff meeting.

Their suggestions are put into action to make change. They were thrilled to know they are actively a part of the progression towards continuous quality improvement.

The more employees get to know one another and care about one another, the more of a team environment we have, thus increasing the overall morale of the company.
