A message from our employees
As a company, CPI has recently made a significant move toward the betterment of it's employees. At the beginning of October, CPI provided every employee with the opportunity for a free gym membership. When the Snap Fitness owner, Wes Armstrong, came to debrief us and sign paperwork for our new gym passes, he expressed that CPI was the only company in town providing gym memberships for their employees (at least at Snap Fitness). When we heard this, we felt incredibly thankful for the opportunity to work for such a caring and generous company. That single statement helped us to see with a new perspective and evoked gratefulness in every person. It's really true that people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care. With this personal investment it is easy to see that our employer cares about us as people, not just employees.
Employee Testimonial: Tonja Williams
"Working for a company who values their employees' well being has been extremely beneficial. It's been a dream serve a company that cares about the well being of its employees and consistently strives to help each person reach their potential. The leadership at CPI pours into its employees in meetings that empower and inspire us to see the world and our job differently. We are encouraged to make a impact on the world around us in and out of the workplace. Our job is much bigger than selling products or services. Each person in leadership cares about their employees and customers on a personal level - and they demonstrate that care in everything they do."

One of my favorite things to do during summer weekends is to go down the shore* to visit friends and share hysterical, mostly embarrassing memories, from long ago. The stories never get old and, in fact, become a little better with time. Hours spent with my friends are familiar, warm and easy – like being suspended in time. They remind me of the slow, lazy days of summer when I was a kid and the biggest decision was a bomb pop or toasted almond. My friends and I have so much in common – our age, values, education and earnings. We like the same food, music, and many of the same activities. Our visits are a nostalgic and comfortable time for everyone involved.
10 Tips To Create A More Inclusive Team Environment
Don’t we all like the comfort of what is familiar? Comfort is what drives people to hire others just like them – people of the same religion, race, ethnicity, socio-economic background, gender, generation, physical ability, etc. But comfort doesn’t unleash innovation, and innovation is core to growth. And as summer ends and the school year starts up, it’s time for new beginnings, new learnings and personal growth. For those of us out of school, it’s still a symbolic time of change and renewal, and a good time for us to think about how we challenge ourselves to get the outcomes we want.
As an organization, we are united around a common goal of growth. Organic growth, as opposed to growth from acquisition of new capabilities or technologies, most often comes from innovations, both small and large. One thing that fuels innovation is diversity of thought within experiences, learnings and understandings.
