  • “If an employee feels like, ‘I go into work everyday and I make a meaningful contribution to the world, to this customer space,’ and the customer comes out and says, ‘I love the people, I love the engineering, I love the results I get from this small business,’ that’s a match that is really unparalleled.” – Fred Fauth [14:56]
  • “Our thought process around this is, if you do what’s right for your customers and your employees, and that relationship is killing it, and you’re being really thoughtful about the fiscal aspects of the business so that you’re making good decisions, that should leave a lot left over to make a big difference in the local community.” – Fred Fauth [16:13]
  • Word of mouth is one thing – ‘yeah you should come in and meet this person.’ But it’s really great if it’s ‘You should come in and meet this person, and by the way go check out the website and you’ll see everything you need to know about working for this place.’ It’s all about multiple brand impressions and building relationships with folks through multiple venues.” – Fred Fauth [27:29]
