Beaverton, OR, July 31, 2015 (Newswire.com) - “When someone walks into our office and says how friendly and fun we are, I’m always elated,” said JC, Capitol City Expansion, Inc.’s director. “This is the type of atmosphere we’ve worked hard to establish.”
JC shared that at Capitol City Expansion, Inc., the importance of building a positive culture has been at the forefront of their operations since the beginning. “I think everyone recognizes that when the office environment is welcoming, when team members are visibly working together, and when there’s a sense of energy and enthusiasm in the air, it’s a good place to work,” he said. “People want to do business with a company that embodies the principles and values they share.”
“Happy offices suggest trust, cooperation, and professionalism,” JC added. “When you deal with a company at which associates seem uninterested in helping you or respond negatively, it’s a reflection of the overall culture. I like to learn from those companies what not to do. For example, if you have to go through multiple levels to get a solution to a simple issue, this tells me people aren’t empowered. At Capitol City Expansion, Inc., we provide our team with the resources they need to make decisions. This leads to a more positive customer experience.”
