Creative Services Is a Great Place to Work. What Does That Mean for You?

“Not all background checks are created equal”

We’re proud of the culture and team we’ve built here at CSI. It’s a foundation that has led us to be named a certified Great Place to Work” two years in a row. Per our certification, 91% of employees at CSI agree CSI is a great place to work, compared to 57% of employees at a typical U.S.-based company.

Our Great Place to Work® Certification™ reveals some other impressive numbers, too. “Great Place to Work” is the only recognition based entirely on what employees report, and (we’re glad to brag) our employees love working with us.

  • 95% of our employees feel that our management is honest and ethical in its business practices
  • 95% of our employees feel that their teammates care about them
  • 95% of our employees felt welcome when they joined our company
  • 95% of our employees feel they can count on their teammates
  • 93% of our employees feel our management is competent at running the business

Great Place to Work Certification is recognized worldwide by employees and employers alike. But while these numbers show how much people love working with us, those numbers also mean great things for our clients.

Our Employees are More Productive

Steve Jobs once told a Stanford graduating class that “the only way to do great work is to love what you do.” Numerous studies have shown that people who are happy to work are more productive, that job satisfaction enhances performance, and that people who enjoy their jobs are generally more optimistic, motivated, learn faster, make fewer mistakes, and make better business decisions.

Our Employees Stay Longer

It’s a competitive world out there, and we’re proud of our ability to attract and maintain the best talent. But it’s not magic. Prospects know which places are great places to work, and it shows in employee recruitment, and in employee longevity.

Indeed, companies with less desirable employee experiences often suffer from high turnover. According to an article from the Houston Chronicle, this can lead to customers who “have inferior experiences with your products and services because these items are manufactured and delivered by people who haven’t been around long enough to do their jobs well.”

You’ll Enjoy Working With Us

A healthy, happy work environment matters; it’s been shown that happier employees are more engaged with their jobs. According to a survey from the Harvard Business Review, “a happier workforce is clearly associated with companies’ ability to deliver better customer satisfaction—particularly in industries with the closest contact between workers and customers.” It’s no surprise we have so many long customer relationships, and receive such consistently positive feedback.

Our Core Values

One of the reasons our employees are so happy is that we carefully screen each one to ensure they are a great fit for our culture and share our core values.

Our core values are:

  • Customer Connected and Focused
  • Lean Into Challenges and be Problem Solvers
  • Speak Up
  • “Can Do” Attitude
  • Responsible Stewards Within the Community
  • Embrace and Invest in the Personal and Professional Development of the CSI Staff
  • Effective Communication; Up and Down
  • Trust and Collaboration
