The Company That's Great News, located in Wallingford, CT. specializes in designing and manufacturing customized plaques and recognition items for people and companies that have been featured in newspaper and magazine articles.. Core Values at That's Great News

Work as a Team

  • We drive success through a positive attitude and strong collaboration
  • We keep other informed by communicating with clarity across departments and individuals.
  • No one person has all the right answers, and no one person gets everything right so we seek advice from others
  • Laughing is important to our team spirit

Decide with Data

  • Test every aspect and use the results that your testing generates when making decisions and assessing performance.
  • NetSuite gives us lots of data, but as Einstein said 'Not everything that can be counted counts'. We have to pick not just data but the right data to direct our decisions.

Deliver Quality Quickly

  • Our speed to reach customers (and internal customers ... meaning other team members) is undoubtedly one of TGN's competitive advantages
  • Deliver personalized designs to customers within minutes or hours .... Not within days
  • Our best opportunity to provide a celebratory plaque is in that moment of emotion, at the point of euphoria. Just like with a date, show up a week late and you'll be disappointed.
  • However it can't be with a bad quality product. We get customer feedback that our products look great WHEN we get the quality right.

Make learning a priority

  • Is there a better way – maybe or maybe not? Very often there is a better way and we've just not found it yet. We always learn when we try and find out.
  • No-one is going to get in trouble for trying to find a better way, even if it doesn't always work out. But as a company we'll all be a in a lot of trouble if nobody tries to find a better way. Learning is a priority.
