We Value More Than You Think

Many companies will say they appreciate their employees and occasionally they will show it by hosting a holiday party or buying lunch for their team.  However, how much do these occasional events affect employees and their engagement at work?  We would say, not that much. Which is why at Class Appraisal, we do things differently.

We know that without our team members, we wouldn’t be as successful as we are.  And that is why we strive to create and maintain a fun culture where people enjoy coming in to work every day.  To do this, we provide team building events, and fun office perks that showcase just how much we appreciate our team members. In fact, our Team Member Services department was put in place to do everything we can to ensure our team members are happy.

So how do we differ from our competitors?  We take fresh ideas and perspectives and put them into action! We provide fun and exciting benefits and team events that not only boost morale, but also helps build great relationships.  We create a fun and friendly work environment by implementing benefits around the office that other companies may not provide; our fresh fruit water being one of them.  Every morning we make a fresh fruit infused water for our team members to enjoy throughout the day, along with unlimited coffee and drinks from our pop machine of course.  We also have a snack cart filled with as many goodies as you can carry, and frequent team appreciation lunches.  Nonetheless, it’s not just the perks that engage people in the workplace. At Class Appraisal, every person is treated with respect and their voice matters.  We compile their ideas and opinions and implement them into our daily office life.  Whether some of the suggestions are to help manage a pipeline more efficiently, or providing concepts for fun events, we take every team member’s idea into consideration.

We know that making our team happy at work is important, so we not only provide in-house perks and benefits, we also create fun and exciting events for our team outside of the office.  Color Runs, Escape Room Events, Painting with a Twist, attending an annual Tigers baseball game; these are just some of the fun group activities that we sponsor for our team. It is a way for everyone to relax and unwind after a long day’s work, while enjoying an activity with their fellow team members.  It’s also a great way for people in different departments to get to know one another and for our new hires to get to know the whole team.

Ultimately, we want our team to know that they are valued and appreciated.  Value is created through people working together and motivating each other. It is sometimes overlooked in the business industry, but at Class Appraisal we make it a point to appreciate and value every team member, because without them we wouldn’t have the success we achieved today.

Does this sound like a team you want to be a part of? Join us today, we are hiring!

Revolutionizing the Company Culture

Have you ever struggled with fostering a better, more inclusive company culture? This seems to be a common concern among companies, and Class Appraisal has created the Team Member Services Department to further promote our company culture. In fact, within the past 6 months there have been so many positive changes that our team has responded with overwhelming approval.

As with most businesses, there are several different departments within Class Appraisal; the team members of which do not regularly intermix in the day-to-day parts of their jobs. However, because we understand that each play a critical role to Class’ overall success we go out of our way to foster fun and friendship among the teams. Here at Class Appraisal, our culture is all about making each and every member feel like a valuable part of the team from the moment they chose to join our company.

How are we doing this?

Not only do we send each and every new hire a box of chocolates before they even start; on their first day we introduce them to the team via email detailing some of their hobbies, favorite movies/television shows, music preferences and past experiences. This helps create a common ground with those who already work here while building a foundation for personal conversations.

Team Member Services works tirelessly to bring everyone together in a fun and creative manner. We provide daily fresh fruit infused water to encourage healthy living. Every Wednesday the team looks forward to the treat cart where they can grab a candy bar, some mixed nuts or even chips to help break up the week with something tasty. Additionally, lunches are regularly brought in, ranging from pizza to taco bars, to congratulate the team on excellent performance and continuing business growth. These are just some of the ways that we show our appreciation for everything our team accomplishes on a daily basis. Also, we deliver monthly trainings which breaks the company into small groups of people from each department to learn and grow together and we organize a monthly Team Member Appreciation Day where we do team building exercises, such as the well-known Marshmallow Challenge.

Class Appraisal exists because of what our team accomplishes, and we are committed to creating an environment where appreciation, fun and friendship flow endlessly with a culture that is all inclusive.
