The General often makes the news . . .
Do you remember these mottoes of the Company often referred to as The General?
Yesteryear, the motto was: "Progress is our most important product."
(Back in those days, they had an actor/spokesperson: Ronald Reagan )
In the recent past, the motto was: "We bring good things to life."
Today’s motto is: "Imagination at work." One client recently said, "It should be Imagine if it works." We can see the humor in that, for sure.
Did you notice since around 1982 (when the era of CEO Jack Welch began), the Company essentially dropped its whole name to be known solely by the two letters G & E? Some would say the PRIDE in the power generation business was lost, but not for most former and current field engineers!
They have, however, kept the “meatball” logo.
