Attracting Talent: Why Culture Matters

By | July 29th, 2016|Company News|

Most of our waking hours are spent in an office setting – behind a desk, in front of a screen, surrounded by our co-workers, managers, and customers. While the hardware from company to company doesn’t change drastically, the culture of each workplace does. Today, when prospective employees consider a career with a company, they examine the bigger picture, rather than simply their assigned day-to-day tasks.

We just celebrated our 10th anniversary at CSID. We are pleased to bring to the table a number of innovative solutions that help address the growing issues related to identity theft and data breach. As employees, we leave the office each day with a sense of purpose and pride, but there’s something else that drives us, too: our company culture.

We balance our challenging tasks and projects with positive energy that stems from our staff. At CSID, we surround ourselves with energetic talent. In addition to helping individuals and businesses on a daily basis, what attracts these talented individuals to our company? Competitive benefits and perks.

We recently made headlines for our new parental leave policy. We now offer a 12-week paid leave policy for moms and dads, a benefit that typically only corporate giants like Facebook and Apple have offered. We also allow that paid maternity/paternity leave to be spread out over a six month period, providing greater flexibility for families.

No kids? No problem. We have important benefits that focus on the individual including 100 percent coverage of dental, vision, and life insurance, and 80 percent coverage on medical insurance. We also have an open vacation policy for our exempt employees, and company-paid holidays. Of course, we extend free identity protection to all of our staff.

Our kitchen is kept stocked with snacks and cool refreshments. We also have an on-site gym, and offer bi-weekly, on-site yoga classes. Namaste. This all occurs just minutes south of downtown Austin, where our headquarters are located. Our offices are developed in a welcoming, open floor plan, with multiple areas to gather and collaborate. Even better, they overlook the Greenbelt. You really can’t beat the view.

We make sure our employees feel valued. We appreciate our staff and the hard work they accomplish each day. Great work deserves great reward. Our challenging work attracts new talent, and our culture keeps them part of our growing workplace.
