Last week the Andersen Corporation celebrated another milestone. The company broke ground on a project to expand its ReNewal by Andersen window manufacturing plant in Cottage Grove.
This follows the recent news of new jobs and expanded production at the Andersen plan in Bayport that includes creating more than 100 new jobs.
In both cases the company made sure it engaged its employees to share the news and celebrate the good things happening with the company that has weathered the recent recession by making a number of changes to its operation.
As important as it is to be prepared to manage challenging times it is equally important to celebrate and take advantage of good news and positive events. Events like the ground breaking event in Cottage Grove gave the company a chance to make sure the entire team knew what was happening and that the company is doing well. Good strategy that produced a great event.
