According to ASI (Adverting Specialty Institute) TNT is dynamite.
ASI and its leading industry magazine, The Counselor, just released its list of top industry workplaces in Canada and the United States this week and The Next Trend (TNT) Designs Inc. ranks 6th overall. Only 40 companies made the 2018 list.
ASI is the promotional product industry’s largest membership organization offering media, technology, marketing and education to help cultivate success and community comradery at the international level.
TNT is a dynamic and innovative company and ASI credits the owners for putting a strong emphasis on employee happiness. For TNT it’s a smart way of doing business.
“Without our team, we wouldn’t be who we are as a company,” explains Janine Taylor, the co-founder and co-owner of TNT, in an interview with The Counselor. Taylor co-founded the company 26 years ago with her partner, Rob Charlton. “As much as we try to give them, we get back ten-fold.”
TNT goes out of its way to make sure every employee feels appreciated and loved. The company hosts summer and holiday parties, and rewards both its top performers as well as accumulated years of loyalty, with gifts. Parties are thrown for birthdays, going away and other events throughout the year. TNT likes to do most life events with their team in style.
The Counselor also reports that TNT has cultivated a tight-knit culture and “offers compensation above the national average.”
A happy workplace generates better productivity, innovation and success, according to the company’s long list of employees. As a result, a happy workplace makes happy clients. TNT’s clients across North America applaud their diverse products and services and this is why they have a high rate of repeat clients and constant growth year after year. Just recently TNT made the PROFIT 500 list again, with a five-year revenue growth of 89 percent. PROFIT 500 is the definitive ranking of Canada’s Fastest Growing Companies.
“It’s great to be recognized by ASI; however, we would never be where we are today without our team of professionals,” says Charlton.
Taylor adds, “Since opening our doors for business in 1992, we always knew that happy employees would help create a successful company… And we were right. When you look after your team, they look after you. We have created a work environment that is positive, fun and ambitious. Looking after ‘our own’ is the reason why we are one of the best places to work in North America and we are elated to receive accolades from ASI.”
Many know that happiness is a great feeling. For Charlton and Taylor, it’s a way of life!
