“From the very beginning of my career at CCA, my manager mentored me, encouraged my ideas and opinions, and even gave me opportunities to lead. They even supported my move and promotion to a different department.”

Being Successful, On Purpose

The Guiding Principles of CCA Global Partners

At CCA, we know our members get the best service when our employees know they are cared for. As leaders, we know it is our job to create a culture where that happens.

The CCA Way™, how CCA employees succeed through collaboration, was built upon CCA’s already great culture. This initiative was based on feedback from employees who were asked what they liked about working for CCA; on the flipside, they were asked what they would change; and, finally, they were asked how they wanted to be treated. Employees formed a number of different internal groups, had active discussions, answered these questions in multiple ways, deleted, rewrote, and so on.

What emerged from very transparent and open discussions were the fundamentals of The CCA Way – How We Succeed through Collaboration. Collaboration is inherent in everything we do each day. The CCA Way is an evolution designed from within and embraces our approach to success. The CCA Way recognizes four Principles and six Practices associated with each Principle.

We believe so deeply in collaboration that every employee is encouraged to hold their colleagues accountable to The CCA Way.

“They let the employees write The CCA Way, and then the leaders incorporated that philosophy into everything that we do. Now it’s second nature for everyone who joins the company. We all really do live it.”
