Induction Heat Treating Corp.

Company Background

Induction Heat Treating Corp. hardens steel products through the induction heating process for customers in the automotive, construction, agricultural, and military sectors. The company was searching for a solution to help improve profits.

Great Game Solutions

When one of his employees returned from a conference inspired by what she had heard about The Great Game from the folks at Tasty Catering, owner Dave Haimbaugh decided to travel down to Chicago and see what the fuss was all about. He, too, was impressed. After also making a trip to the Gathering of Games, Haimbaugh was ready to commit. Soon thereafter, with the help of coach Kevin Walter, the company began a financial literacy program incombination with huddles, MiniGames and the implementation of a bonus program.


  • After it’s first year practicing The Great Game, net profits were up an impressive 9%.
  • Second year results also look promising and are expected to roll in with another 6% increase in net profits.
  • “We had some poor months at the end of 2013 and the start of 2014,” says Haimbaugh. “But that turned around quickly.”
