Fuse Celebrated as a Military Friendly® Spouse Employer

Fuse today announced it has been named a 2024 Military Friendly® Spouse Employer, a complement to the company’s 2024 Military Friendly® Employer, Silver designation award announced last year.

We’re proud to support military spouses in building and advancing fulfilling careers.”

Fuse is a service-disabled veteran-owned small business creating products that advance warfighter capabilities in the battlespace. Veteran and spouse employees make up more than 30 percent of the company’s workforce and are a vital part of the culture.

Pet-Friendly Workplaces Are On The Rise. Here’s Why Fuse Said Yes To Pets

“When it came time to decide whether pets belonged at work, it’s possible that the company was influenced by its military ties. CEO Sumner Lee started his career as a naval aviator and more than 40% of the company’s 90-plus team members have a military background. The U.S. Department of Defense has long supported active service military pet owners, recognizing the value that pets bring to military personnel and their families. To provide a sense of scope, a recent DOD press release announcing reimbursable pet expenses due to permanent change of station estimated that the new allowance could be used by 227,000 service members!

Regardless of military background, company leaders decided early in the company’s journey that pets would be welcome at Fuse facilities. They understood the many benefits to team members from a work-life balance perspective — and to the company itself.”

So, reports Karen Janowitz in a recent California Business Journal article featuring Fuse and the company’s pet-friendly workplace.  

Describing the benefits of having pets at work and tips for making it work, the article includes two photos of Fuse team members’ dogs at the company’s unique workspace.

Fuse Fuels Creativity and Innovation

“Where you work matters. For Fuse Integration, a warfighter-focused engineering and design firm, location was the first consideration when moving its headquarters from downtown San Diego to nearby Kearny Mesa, California four years ago. The new locale is a defense contractor hub, rich with veteran and engineering talent — and a great place to bike to work.

Next, and equally important, Fuse needed to build out the interior space to fit their needs. With a mix of practical and aesthetic requirements, the team set out to create something special for their growing team. Now, leaders and employees agree: Fuse’s headquarters fuels creativity and innovation.”

That’s the opening of a new California Business Journal article by reporter Claire Cattone, “Fuse Fuels Creativity and Innovation.”

Outlining five driving forces that helped the company shape the space, the article touches on Fuse’s distinctive culture, warfighter workshops, space for prototyping and testing, and company events.

At Fuse, It’s Common to Bike, Scooter, or Skateboard to Work

“The choice of where to locate a business has always been important. At a time when many are returning to hybrid or in-person work, location is a bigger factor than ever in attracting and maintaining a talented workforce. Four years ago, Fuse moved its headquarters to Kearny Mesa, a location just north of downtown San Diego. This was a strategic move, based on culture and their employees’ experience. Considerations for work-life balance, proximity to partners, access to airfield assets for its Flight Test Squadron, and commutability all played a part.

Today, the fast-growing company has a slew of team members who drive, bike, and, yes — even skateboard to work!”

So opens a new California Business Journal article, “How’s Your Commute? At Fuse, It’s Common to Bike, Scooter, or Skateboard to Work,” that describes how the company’s culture and priorities drove the decision about where to relocate four years ago.

Requirements around a desire for work-life balance and a healthy lifestyle, access to a military talent pool and defense tech community, and proximity to an airfield all helped to pinpoint the right location. Then, special touches such as room for indoor bike storage and a feature skateboard rack all help to reinforce the unique culture Fuse has created.
