Tailored Label Products introduces a new wellness benefit for their employees: an onsite health and wellness clinic!
TLP announced as Award Winner in the 2021 Graphics Excellence Awards earning both a Certificate of Merit and Best in Category.
TLP formalized a mentoring program to link employees with leadership to help achieve goals but to strengthen bonds within the team.
The start of a new year brings with it the annual tradition of resolution setting at a personal level. Always popular are the goals to better oneself at the start of a new year through a variety of avenues (health, financial fitness, etc.).
But what about solution setting for your business “self”?
Sure, we close our calendar year with strategic sessions and budgeting but in the same essence of personal betterment, business resolutions should improve upon the business identity or corporate culture and the people and community involved with and supporting your organization.
2020 proved to us that the strength of our culture and our team is everything. As we look to 2021, our business resolutions continue to evolve and grow but focusing on a strong culture and a strong team is paramount. We will increasingly come alongside our teammates with compassionate flexibility and implement creative ways to help each other balance family and work. From new technology investments that will make our jobs easier, to increased cross training throughout the company that will provide more opportunity for flexibility and “load leveling”. Obviously, all of this comes with the expectation that we must continually give our customers products and services at a level they won’t find elsewhere.
We will also be ever more resolute towards having a positive impact on our community. From a stepped-up partnership with the American Heart Association to increasing the frequency of our company wide food drives to help support our local food pantries.
To that end, our “resolution” is to continually get better at Touching Peoples’ Lives. We will always intensely focus on our customers with an uncompromised emphasis on our team. And we’ll always focus on being a positive force in our community.

TLP’s Keys to Employee Engagement
Have you seen the quote floating around your social network, “Pay attention to how companies treat their employees during this time. It speaks volumes to their core ethics.”
Getting and keeping employees engaged and connected during normal times is challenging. These days, when our teams are stressed, scared and weary, it can be even more challenging. I’ll argue, it can also be a bit easier. People want something to believe in and something to rally around. Keeping each other safe, and keeping the company that supports all the associated families viable, is a cause that most people can grab on to.
Using our core values and our company ethics, as a guide, here are three things that TLP is doing to weather the storm.
Keeping Employees Engaged at TLP:
- Reigniting continuous improvement initiatives: Using these slower times to tackle projects and training we’ve been putting off can make our companies and employees stronger, create a bond between team members, and better prepare us for the road ahead.
- Maintaining internal and external communication and transparency: Regularly checking in with our team members / customers / vendors and asking them how they and their families are doing is powerful. They want to know we care about them and that our company will be OK.
- Don’t forget the FUN: In the midst of all of this, I believe it’s important to have fun as well.This week, I’ve been recording myself telling quick “Dad joke” videos and sending them out to the whole company. We also have theme days for work attire. Sweats day, Tie Dye day, etc… It’s corny stuff but I believe our folks appreciate the effort and the intent.
We want our employees, customers and vendors to remember, after all this has passed, the stability and support they felt within the work environment at TLP and within their relationship with TLP.
Our goal for our company, and for others, can’t be simply to survive. We should aim to thrive, coming out of this nightmare stronger than we were before it came.
