At Captive Resources, our people are our greatest asset and the cornerstone of our transformative business. We know how important it is to provide our colleagues with an environment that allows them to perform at their best and makes them look forward to coming to work.
What’s it like working at Captive Resources (CRI)? Well, yes, we work hard and provide our clients with service that’s unmatched in our industry, but we always try to have fun while doing so! Not only is the company supportive, but we care about one another and enjoy spending time together and giving back to our community in a variety of ways. At CRI, we strive to foster a positive and collaborative culture for our colleagues.
The Culture at CRI
Our culture says a lot about what it’s like to work at CRI. As we grow our company in new directions, more opportunities arise! Even with this growth, we work hard to continually nurture and protect our culture and the values that we work and live by every day:
Learning and career growth
Respect and concern for one another
Integrity and ethical behavior
Complete customer satisfaction/focus
Continuous quality improvement
These values are the foundation of our culture, and as an employee, you’ll see and experience how they are evident throughout our workplace.
Our colleagues also enjoy a variety of perks and activities designed with them in mind, including:
A flexible, hybrid work schedule with in-office days on Monday and one other day each week and free lunches Tuesday through Thursday
Dress for your day, casual Fridays, and summer attire (we’re pretty laid back)
Early release Fridays (gotta love that!)
Fully equipped lunch/social room with TV, free coffee, water, and soft drinks
Quarterly off-site company events and celebrations, including our annual company family picnic (yes, we still have one of those!) and holiday party (yup, that too)
Off-site departmental team events (Cubs games, lake tours, Iron Chef cooking competitions, and more!)
Monthly pizza lunches for all staff
Recognized as a Great Place to Work
You don’t have to take our word on how great a place CRI is to work. Our culture, values, and benefits have helped us earn distinguished honors from Chicago Tribune’s Top Workplace rankings, Top Workplaces USA, and Business Insurance’s Best Place to Work in Insurance list.
Our colleagues enjoy our professional yet friendly atmosphere — as do our clients, who visit us often. And did we mention our beautiful, new, state-of-the-art workspace? It’s cool, modern, high-tech, ergonomic, and super functional. Our office space also includes a full gym that’s free for our colleagues and a deli that’s open for breakfast and lunch.
Teams that Play Together…
At CRI, we feel that a professional environment where colleagues feel relaxed, comfortable, and appreciated contributes significantly to our productivity and high-quality work. Our colleagues describe working here as collaborative, high energy, fun, and friendly. And in a recent survey, they told us that they really enjoy our team structure.
CRI believes in giving back and donating time and resources to others in need. And, as you may have guessed, we enjoy doing it together! We participate in several events in our community for very worthy causes, some of which are very close to our hearts.
Every Spring, the CRI co-ed softball team takes the field and displays our competitive spirit.
Intro to Golf
In 2022, we launched our Intro to Golf program. Spearheaded by CFO Donna Dreuth and VP, Finance & Controller Erin Peterson, this initiative helps our female colleagues learn the game and feel more comfortable participating in business golf events. The program consists of four lessons:
Golf etiquette/rules of the game
Short game techniques (chipping and putting)
Full swing instruction
A 9-hole round to put it all together
Getting Into the Spirit
Our Travel Team gets into the holiday spirit by showing off their favorite ugly Christmas sweaters.
