Our Core Values Guide Everything We Do

Our three core values — Trust, Collaboration, and Creativity — guide everything we do at CJBS, from our innovative client work to our interactions with each other. Our team has diverse personal backgrounds and specialties, but we share a common culture rooted in these values.

Trust

Positive, supportive relationships are the cornerstone of our business. Being honest and fair with our clients, and each other, is simply the right thing to do.

Professional development

At CJBS, you’ll receive the encouragement — and structure — you need to reach your goals. In addition to working one on one with our partners, you’ll get hands-on experience working directly with clients.

The flexibility to work remotely

The world has changed, and we’re changing with it. We appreciate that everyone thrives when they have the flexibility to alternate between home and office as seamlessly as possible. That’s why a hybrid workplace model — combining in-office and remote work — is the new normal for our team.

Work-life balance

Life is all about balance. We understand that having an active personal life is vital to your health and happiness. We encourage everyone on our team to pursue their passions, not only in the office but outside of work. Dog moms, soccer dads, dedicated solo adventurers? Our team has them all!

Bringing varied perspectives to the table is just one way we’re able to innovate on behalf of our clients, while also learning from one another.

As part of the community for 35 years, we’re honored to give back. We encourage all of our team members to contribute however they prefer. Charitable giving, volunteer work, and supporting not-for-profit initiatives have always been an important part of our mission.
