HAPPY: Aaron Kerven

March 21, 2024

At MMI Industrial & Steel, our commitment to excellence extends far beyond the products we deliver and the projects we undertake. It encompasses the very fabric of our organizational culture. One of the cornerstones of our culture is captured in our 4H Core Value of HAPPY, as shared by Project Manager, Aaron Kerven.

When asked about his choice to spotlight the core value of HAPPY, Aaron elaborated on his initial curiosity, admitting, "The reason I chose happy was that I didn’t fully understand the value meaning." This admission speaks volumes about the importance of introspection and continuous learning within our company. By acknowledging the significance of HAPPY, we pave the way for a workplace where individuals thrive, innovation flourishes, and our collective mission can be advanced.

Happiness, as Aaron highlights, transcends simple, fleeting moments of joy. It is about integrating joy into our daily endeavors, infusing it into our goals, plans, and motivations, in an effort to achieve lasting fulfillment. This perspective resonates deeply with our principles at MMI Industrial & Steel, where we don't merely seek temporary satisfaction. Instead, we aspire to cultivate an environment where genuine happiness permeates every aspect of our operations.

Aaron goes on to underscore the distinction between experiencing happiness and embodying happiness. While fleeting moments of happiness may come and go, being truly HAPPY involves wearing a perpetual smile, regardless of circumstances. It's about fostering a positive demeanor in every encounter, spreading joy in every interaction, and maintaining a culture of happiness that reverberates throughout our organization.

Looking to the future, Aaron envisions prioritizing HAPPY as a guiding principle in his career trajectory. He believes that this commitment to happiness will not only lead to personal fulfillment but will also contribute to creating positive change within the organization. This forward-thinking approach mirrors our company's overall goal of making a meaningful impact within the organization and beyond.

In the realm of customer experience, it is Aaron’s belief that our core value of HAPPY plays a pivotal role in shaping interactions with clients and customers. It is by fostering a culture of excellence, empathy, and innovation, that we can exceed, not just meet, customer expectations. Our commitment to being HAPPY ensures that every interaction is infused with positivity, leading to strengthened relationships, enhanced customer loyalty, and ultimately, better outcomes for all parties involved.

At MMI Industrial & Steel, we believe that promoting HAPPY as one of our Core Value is something greater and more meaningful than a trend to be followed. It is a transformative philosophy that drives our success. As Aaron aptly puts it, "Companies promoting HAPPY as a Core Value should become the norm." MMI Industrial & Steel is proud to lead by example, demonstrating that happiness isn't a destination. In fact, happiness is a journey; one which we embark on together, shaping a brighter future for us all.

Embracing being HAPPY is more than a choice we make everyday. It is our commitment to fostering a workplace where individuals thrive, innovation flourishes, and happiness permeates every interaction. At MMIIndustrial & Steel, don’t just weld steel and build structures. We continually, and diligently work on building a culture of HAPPY people that propel us toward excellence, today and every day.
