CCA Global Partners tops the list at #6 on the 2020 Best Companies to Work for in New Hampshire by Business NH Magazine.
In a tumultuous year with a global pandemic casting a great shadow of uncertainty and change on the economy and community, CCA Global Partners stands out even more as one of the best company to work for.
It is in critical times like these that the true character and nature of a company are revealed. From the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, CCA Global upheld the health and safety of their employees first and foremost, quickly acting to move their entire office online in a single week. They creatively worked within their finances and structure to ensure not a single employee would be laid off during the growing health and economic crisis, extended additional sick days to all employees, and held bi-weekly, company-wide virtual addresses from leadership.
“I am so honored to work for a company like CCA Global Partners and a leader like Howard Brodsky that values its employees so much. I can tell you that even when times are hard, positive energy comes naturally when you work in an environment that fosters individual growth and gives its employees the platform to share ideas and implement change. It is very special to absolutely love what you do!” said Lakeesha Hargis, Marketing and Communications Director at CCA.
In 2020, CCA Global continues to evolve in the pursuit of its mission to empower entrepreneurs and family-owned businesses, and is highly committed to its employees as essential partners in doing so. The mission fuels a special passion among employees for local businesses everywhere, individuals really recognize the impact they are making through their work.
CCA Global’s mission inspires a special culture among its staff, which includes: pet-friendly Fridays, on-site yoga classes, massage and chiropractic services, free gym memberships, subsidized meals and snacks, an in-office art gallery, and regular guest speakers addressing employees on issues ranging from wellness to financial health. They maintain a corporate culture that is highly inclusive and flat, engaging all employees in meaningful and connected ways across all roles and divisions. Furthermore, the corporate giving and volunteerism efforts the company engages in is informed and inspired by its employees. All of these factors contribute to making it a place where employees truly want to stay and grow, and an attractive option to prospective job seekers.
As a perennial award-winning employer of choice, CCA Global values the role it plays in being a leading example of balancing gender equity in the workplace. It is one of very few companies in the state that offer all employees in the organization paid family leave for both new mothers and fathers, and extends this benefit to adoption.
Earlier this year, CEO Howard Brodsky was recognized by Business NH Magazine as the Business Leader of the Decade, and in 2019 Brodsky was honored with the International Rochdale Pioneer Award, known as the ‘Nobel Prize’ of the global cooperative movement. In 2018, Brodsky was honored with the Global Leadership Award presented by the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire and the company was named “the Coolest Company to Work For” by Stay Work Play as part of their Rising Stars awards. Past recognitions also include the 2012 New Hampshire Business Leader of the Year Award, the 2015 Granite State Legacy Award and New Hampshire Business Review’s 2016 Best of Business Award – best new idea to change the world.
“CCA is not in the business of any one industry, we are in the business of helping ALL family-owned businesses stay competitive in this exceedingly competitive and consolidating marketplace. It is not about ‘ME’ it is about ‘WE’; we are helping the Davids of the world defeat Goliath.” said Howard Brodsky. “At CCA Global, our employees bring the heart to our business and building a culture inspired by both them and our mission is the secret that leads to our success. Being recognized as one of the 2020 Best Companies to Work For is a great honor as it reflects that we continue to walk the walk.”
