With ‘evolution’ at the forefront, here are tools that could prove to be game changers at Elm

By Tim Rzeszutek

In November’s Elm newsletter, Bob discussed our “Why.” At the end of his writeup, he listed our core values as a company (Safety, Service, Integrity, and Evolution) and defined these very well as to what they mean to us. I want to focus this article on Evolution and why it’s importance could be easily overlooked compared to the other three.

Bob defined Evolution as “proactive learning and innovation.” I could not agree with this more. Why is this important? How about nine businesses that don’t exist today or are a mere fraction of what they were because they failed to be innovative. Nokia, Kodak, Blockbuster, Myspace, Toys R Us, Yahoo, Xerox, Pan American World Airways and Segway all were unable or unwilling to adapt to disruption, technological advancements and evolving customer demands.

I like to think that I am a proactive learner and always looking for innovative advantages to make our day to day operations safer, easier and improve our bottom line. Below are some new tools and products that I have come across or that have been shared with me that may or may not be the game changers that we are looking for. What I think is more imperative is that we are making sure we don’t overlook the importance to adapt as needed.
