At cmi, we understand the power of a vibrant corporate culture. Clint Pulver, Sylvie di Giusto and Tim Sanders are experts in empowering employees to inspire excellence and fuel success.

In the world of business, the term "corporate culture" often conjures up images of boardroom discussions and HR initiatives. However, at cmi, we believe that building a vibrant corporate culture is not just the responsibility of upper management or the HR department – it's a collective effort that involves every member of the organization.

Picture this: a workplace where every individual feels valued, engaged, and empowered to contribute their best. That's the essence of a strong company culture, and it's something we're passionate about fostering here at cmi.

But why is a robust company culture so crucial? Let's explore a few compelling reasons:

  1. Employee Retention: In today's competitive job market, attracting and retaining top talent is more critical than ever. A strong company culture can be a magnet for high-performing individuals who are seeking more than just a paycheck. When employees feel connected to the values and mission of the organization, they're more likely to stay for the long haul.

  2. Identity and Values: Your company culture is not just a set of rules or policies; it's the heartbeat of your organization. At cmi, we're passionate about growth and learning, and that passion permeates every aspect of our culture. When your company values align with those of your employees, you create a shared sense of purpose that drives success.

  3. Brand Identity: Your corporate culture isn't just internal – it also shapes how the outside world perceives your brand. A workplace that prioritizes employee well-being and fosters a fun-loving atmosphere sends a powerful message to customers and clients. By investing in your company culture, you're not just building a strong internal community – you're also strengthening your brand identity in the eyes of the public.

We'll dive deeper into the elements of a thriving company culture and explore practical strategies for cultivating it at every level of your organization. Because at cmi, we believe that when it comes to building a successful business, company culture truly is everybody's business.

Any of the people in the room that night could have received this award because we’re all so dedicated. I love that about my industry. But this year, my peers chose me and I will be forever grateful for that..

Have you ever been brought to tears by something your peers did for you?

This past weekend I received an award for ‘exemplary service’ to my industry - an industry that I’ve been a part of for almost 27 years. When they called to inform me that I’d be receiving the award, I realized this is a special moment in my life. Not one I’d planned for or even worked towards - but one that my peers felt compelled to give me - and it brought me to tears.

Being recognized by people that you deeply respect is humbling. I have access to the brightest minds in the world which gives me constant knowledge and opportunity for growth - in addition, my industry colleagues are some of the most passionate people I know. Any of the people in the room that night could have received this award because we’re all so dedicated. I love that about my industry. But this year, my peers chose me and I will be forever grateful for that.

A special thank you to Brian Palmer who has been both a friend and a mentor for the last 25 years and whose father this award is named after. John Palmer was a man deeply respected by his peers and to be recognized in his name is something I will cherish forever.

Thank you also to Shawn Hanks and the rest of the Awards Committee for placing this honour on my shoulders. I will continue to show my dedication to our industry in the hopes it will inspire others to be even more dedicated.

And lastly a very huge thank you to my team - Rebecca, Tara, Adrienne, Elyse, Felicia and Dani - who are so dedicated to the work they do for cmi - which gives me the support and the space to contribute to our industry.
