In an era where employee morale and recognition are vital for a company's success, UTEM has adopted a unique tradition to celebrate production milestones. The company president, Kirk Zanders, has introduced the practice of hitting a gong when the production quota is met. This ceremonial event not only brings the workers together but also serves as a way to acknowledge their hard work and dedication. The tradition has proven to be a powerful tool in boosting morale and making employees feel appreciated.
A Gong-Ringing Tradition:
At UTEM, the gong-ringing tradition marks the completion of each aerial device produced. When the production quota is met, all the workers gather for a quick ceremony. The gong, a symbol of achievement and celebration, is hit by each worker involved in the production process. This act not only represents the collective efforts of the entire team but also serves as a personal moment of accomplishment for each individual.
