Doing good by giving back
"We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give." Winston Churchill
As we celebrate our 20 years of being in business helping marketing and creative leaders across the Twin Cities get more work done, it is the perfect time us to express our gratitude to those who have been on this journey with us, and to 'give back' to the community in a meaningful way.
As an employer of more than 120 people across the Twin Cities, we take seriously our commitment to being a best-in-class business to ensure our employees can make a successful living with us. We also take seriously our obligation as a successful company to share that success with others, which is why we developed our CreatisCares program.
Through CreatisCares, we focus on being a caring and contributing member of the Twin Cities professional community. While we support many non-profit organizations across the Twin Cities, we place special emphasis on those that, like Creatis, are dedicated to helping people improve job skills, get training and prepare for interviews so they can find great jobs and live better lives!
To bring this commitment to being Of Service to life this year, we have launched our 20for20 volunteering campaign where the Creatis leadership team has committed to completing at least 20 hours of community engagement through skills-based volunteering or monetary commitments in honor of our 20th anniversary. Beth Bitney and I were pleased to be participate in the practice interviewing sessions with Step-Up Achieve, which places Minneapolis youth in paid internships each year. It's just feels good to take a moment to give back, and we take the maxim of 'to whom much is given, much is required' to heart!
We hope you will join us in this effort to give back sometime during 2018. Look for more information in an upcoming Creatis eNews and on the CreatisCares section of our website.
