Forget a product or service. Forget customers. Forget a rock solid executive team.

A viable company is nothing without dedicated employees working behind-the-scenes. They build, create, support, and service. They are the backbone. They matter more than anything else.

It’s easy for leaders to get knee-deep in the day-to-day without always knowing how their employees are making a difference. They may not always realize that employees are going above and beyond for the customer – working hard all day, and sometimes all night, to meet deadlines and exceed expectations.

We recently received an email from one of our customers, Jim Tull, who’s a named partner and CFO at award-winning architecture, engineering, and surveying firm, Crafton Tull. Crafton Tull has nearly 400 employees with offices throughout the Southern and Western United States.

Jim noticed a thread on his company’s YouEarnedIt recognition wall. The recognition post referenced a group of 10 employees.

YouEarnedIt Cusatomer Crafton Tull Recognition Post
 

It included a follow-up comment by Crafton Tull’s other named partner, CEO Matt Crafton, and exemplified three of Crafton Tull’s six core values, including:

EXCELLENCE:
Strive to excel in all we do to deliver superior results

RESPONSIVENESS:
Doing whatever possible to meet the needs of our clients while staying true to our core values

TEAMWORK:
Collaborating internally and externally to achieve a common goal
 
Jim Tull simply wrote in his email:

I would never had known we had a full office of people working this weekend if it were not for YEI.

If the amazing team at YouEarnedIt does nothing else but make it easy for company leaders like Jim and Matt to recognize employees and behaviors aligned with business objectives and core values, we’ve earned our keep. Employee recognition matters.

Thanks for sharing Jim! And congrats to the entire Crafton Tull team for getting named one of the top 50 Best Firms to Work For in the U.S. and Canada based on your workplace practices, employee benefits, and employee retention rates. We’re proud to call you a customer.
