2019 Kickoff Be Better Than Yesterday

2019 Kick-off / / Be Better Than Yesterday


Fathom’s annual kick-off—held January 3rd and 4th of this year—is an essential part of our company culture because it is meaningful time set aside to reconnect with fellow employees while setting intentions for the year ahead. This company-wide event was particularly special because the team celebrated ten years of award-winning advanced manufacturing with incredible customers who are changing their world with their inventions and innovations.

The team has set its sights even higher this year following Fathom’s best year yet. As part of our continued commitment to offering industry-leading prototyping and manufacturing services, this year’s company theme of Be Better Than Yesterday” best embodied our attitude for chapter ahead.

“There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called yesterday and the other is called tomorrow, so today is the right day to love, believe, do and mostly live.” —Dalai Lama

During the two-day celebration, Fathomers met to review results and highlights of 2018, discuss goals for 2019, participate in team activities and listen to motivational words from guest speakers.


Each year, the creative minds on Fathom’s design and engineering team make unique trophies for the employee nominated award ceremony. Fathomers take time during December to acknowledge each other’s contributions made throughout the year. Those with the most nominations per category receive a custom trophy during the kick-off. This year, they worked with both our additive manufacturing and CNC machining production teams to create a design that embodied last year’s company-wide theme of “CONNECT.”

From the photos above, you can see that the design embraces a blended approach of multiple technologies, leveraging Adobe Photoshop, color 3D printing on a Stratasys J750 and CNC machining—check out below which Fathomers were honored for their work in 2018.
