Top Ten Reasons to Join our Team
#1 You Love Helping People Thrive
Everyone wants to thrive; to live a prosperous and fulfilling life. At Creative Group, that is goal number one: to ensure our employees thrive and in turn that our clients and their employees and channel partners reach their highest potential as well.
#2 You Invest in You
We like to think of ongoing training and continuous feedback as our investment in your future. Flexible work schedules that allow for work/life integration and access to generous benefits and wellness support are just some of the signs you are in the right place. Your business flight got in past midnight and you haven’t done your laundry in weeks, you say? By all means, grab some extra shut eye and take the morning to do your laundry – your burnout won’t help anyone!
#3 You Are Moved By the Power of Purpose
We are not commodities, we are people. Just as we search for a purpose in life, we should find meaning in work. Our leadership believes in the power of purpose. As you contribute your time, talent and ideas, you’ll see the impact you make at Creative Group, and for the employees and channel partners of our clients’ companies.
#4 You Have Great Ideas
Are you an idea generator? We value those lightbulb moments. Whether it’s how we can be working more efficiently, discovering new revenue channels or helping others thrive, we are here to listen. We’ve been known to turn employee ideas into important company programs and initiatives with real outcomes and full leadership backing. What does that mean? It means you don’t have to work at Google to be allowed the freedom to dream.
#5 You Embrace the Freedom to Be Yourself
Dress for your day. Be resourceful. Have fun. Decorate your workspace. Solve puzzles/challenges daily. Just be yourself. Because “yourself” is a unique mind full of potential with a point of view that we desperately want to put to good use.
#6 You Like to See and Be Seen
We place heavy value on trust and transparency. Members of the Creative Group leadership team will invite you to lunch, or you can invite them. They will be upfront with you and they genuinely want to hear what you have to say. When changes are happening, you are in the know – even when all of the answers haven’t quite been figured out yet. The best part about this? Maybe you are the one with the answer!
#7 You Are Passionate About Your Future
We have added numerous specialty positions (many recommended by current employees) to channel and nurture individual passions. As important as your future is with Creative Group, your future in general is even more so. Your personal thrivabilitySM is in your hands, but we will give you the tools and encouragement to reach for it.
#8 You Want to Work With a Company That Believes What You Believe
Companies choose us when our core beliefs align. We think you should choose us, only if your core beliefs align with ours, and we will do the same. We believe in honor, ownership, grit, heart, courage and curiosity just to name a few. What do you believe in?
#9 You Believe in Social Good
We like to be social and we believe in social good. Our Social Committee not only organizes activities for us to celebrate together but also to create an impact in our local, national and global communities. Obstacle runs, Bags Tournaments, Company BBQs, Ice Cream Delivery Trucks, Pancake Breakfast made by our leadership team and impromptu treats are simple ways we bring joy to the office. Clean the World, Feed My Starving Children, local food banks, adopt-a-family, pajamas and books for children, are just some of the causes we support to lend a hand. But most importantly, we pitch in to help our own when they or their families are going through hard times.
#10 You Are the Face of Excellence
Our internal recognition platform has won awards such as the Incentive Marketing Association “Circle of Excellence” Award and the Deloitte Wisconsin 75 People Award. Check out the Excelevate Case Study. Every week we are reminded of the great work our colleagues do. How they go above and beyond for internal and external customers. How they lead in inspiring ways. How they’ve dedicated years of service to make Creative Group a great place to work. The spirit to serve within each of us is an important driver for delivering exceptional performance-changing results.
We don’t just talk about thriving – everything we do is with the goal of helping our associates, clients and communities Thrive.
Health and Wellness
We offer competitive, flexible programs:
• Choice of medical plans
• National dental and vision plan
• Tax-advantaged savings and spending accounts
• Company-paid Short-Term Disability program
• Employee Assistance Program
Finance and Planning for the Future
We deliver comprehensive rewards – including competitive base pay and an incentive program that directly links each team member’s contributions to the company’s overall success. In addition, we offer a 401(k) with company-matching contributions.
We believe that excellence deserves to be rewarded. Our recognition program allows peers and managers to notice those who go above and beyond so they may give credit – and rewards – where due. Plus, the program includes a monthly drawing, where those who have been recognized can receive: days off, gift cards to local restaurants and ‘points’ that can be redeemed for amazing items through our online catalog.
At the end of the year, everyone that has been recognized is entered in a drawing for an incredible grand prize!
Ongoing Training and Development
A thriving organization is always learning. After all, one of our Core Beliefs is Curiosity and we strive for our employees to be lifelong learners. Our goal is to provide our people with opportunities for both professional and personal growth. We conduct training need assessments each year to clarify our focus and resources on what employees want to learn. And we use a blend of developed internal training, peer-to-peer training, and training created by certified experts throughout the year. All classes and opportunities are housed on our internal employee development platform, iThrive University.
Our team members invest a lot of their time servicing our clients, that’s why we support them with flexible schedules and customized work arrangements. During the holidays, we celebrate our people – and their families – by closing our offices for the last week in December.
Helping Our Communities
We offer paid volunteer time so that our team members can positively impact the lives of others. Together with Direct Travel, we partner with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to help grant wishes for children with critical illnesses. In addition, we give back throughout the year in a variety of ways…backpacks for needy children, food for pantries in our community, holiday gifts for needy children, and donations to communities that have been hit hard by disasters. Plus, our PTO donation program allows our team members to help each other in times of need.
