To mark the anniversary, we interviewed 19 employees that have been with ReSound for more than 20 years.  Here’s what they had to say:

In your opinion, what’s the biggest difference between ReSound then and ReSound now?

  • “Technology in the product and the manufacturing processes. Things the dispenser does in the office with software used to require that the aid be sent in and components replaced.”
  • “…the level of talented and specialized people who are ReSound’s employees today is amazing…”

What makes you most proud to have worked at ReSound this long?

  • “Our technology and the relationship we have with customers… I still see customers from 1987 doing business with us!!! That tells a lot about our company…”
  • “Getting to work with such great people, who are now more like family!”
  • “Contributing to delivering products that provide improved quality of life for the hearing impaired through customer & patient focused services.”
