Here at Fathom, we love thanking each other for a job well done. A pat on the back goes a long way, and each of us goes out of our way to say “gracias” if a team member goes out of their way. In fact, we have a tool we call “The Love Machine” for the sole purpose of sending a databased email to thank co-workers.
Each month, either the sender or the recipient of the most Love is given the Love Trophy (along with a custom-designed banner of Rod Stewart and the words “Have I told you lately that I love you” that decorates their cubicle for the month) in front of the staff at our company meeting.
And with that theme of Love, we now have another incentive to thank each other. For the entire year of 2012, Fathom will donate $1 to the American Heart Association for each piece of Love sent.
Fathom employees work year-round with both local and national charities through fundraising and volunteer work. With the theme of love and hearts, the American Heart Association was a natural choice to encourage more thank-yous get sent and received.
