Abstract Displays volunteering boosts employee satisfaction
Members company Abstract Displays, Inc. is an award winning designer and producer of dimensional solutions for all trade show and face-to-face sales, marketing and corporate event needs. Abstract’s objective is to provide its clients with the proper tools to become more efficient and effective in their jobs and to boost the overall performance of their events and marketing programs. To accomplish this mission, Abstract Displays offers a comprehensive service program to event marketing professionals.
Carla Eng and her husband, Michael, started the company on December 6, 2000. They established the business to provide clients in the Event marketing and Trade Show industries with a resource that would deliver a level of service beyond their comprehension, “True Service Excellence!”
This past spring, in their tenth year of Chamber membership, Abstract Displays was awarded the 2011 Community Involvement Award at the Chamber’s Small Business Excellence Awards. Abstract cites the employee satisfaction gained from volunteering as the motive behind their success in that arena. They also note that the SBEAs help with employee satisfaction and motivation as well: “We feel the Chamber’s award program gives additional recognition to companies from their peers in business and the community that their success is making a difference not only to the company itself but also to the public.”
The Engs cite the Chamber’s networking opportunities as a key part of their survival in a rocky economy and the growth Abstract Displays has experienced in the past ten years. Abstract was named on the INC 5000 list of fastest growing privately owned companies in America for the fifth consecutive year in 2011. In addition, founder Carla Eng was named the 2010 Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber Woman of the Year, and was invited to the White House to witness President Obama signing off on the small business jobs bill.
