People Focused Culture
We like to have fun at work. In fact, one of our core values (see all of our values on the About Us page) is Personal Fulfillment, which includes…
- Celebrating company, team, and individual successes
- Enjoying and embracing our journey
- Making wellness a priority
- Fostering relationships
- Encouraging professional development
We all strive to live and exemplify these and all of our core values in our daily work activities and responsibilities, and we’ve even instituted a number of fun initiatives to make them even more tangible.
One Wednesday a month (and two Wednesdays when it’s warm!), we have Workout Wednesday!—or WoW!
WoW! helps us get out of the office, get active, and enjoy time together. We walk, run, or ride, and then all come back together for lunch. We track all of the miles everyone puts in all summer, and then Career Step donates a certain amount for each mile to a charity of our choice at the end of the year. (Read about our 2013 donation on the blog!)
LUNCH & LEARN
Our Lunch & Learn program gives us a more informal opportunity to cover issues or initiatives that impact our business, to learn new skills, and to build a culture that promotes learning, communication, and collaboration. Past Lunch & Learns have included topics such as SEO, social media and business, and innovations our instructors are using to better connect with students.

We work hard so we can play hard at Career Step! We’ve sponsored a number of Ragnar Relay Series, softball, and bike race teams over the past few years—and we love the opportunity to get out and spend time together while enjoying some friendly competition.
All of these events give us the chance to build stronger teams, get to know others who we may not normally work with, and strengthen our commitment to wellness.
We have a lot of fun at Career Step, so there is usually something going on. In the summer we have a company picnic (this year it was a luau complete with dance lessons!), at Halloween we have an annual costume contest and invite employees’ children to trick-or-treat around the office, and there is—of course—the annual Christmas party.
Different departments also often host team-building get-togethers and events. We like to eat so these usually revolve around food, but there are also opportunities to develop professional skills together or just enjoy a little friendly competition. Or, in the case of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, the chance to dump ice water on our executive team (watch the video)!
