We’re incredibly proud of the women at CPM & Retail Safari who show our business and our clients everyday just how resilient, creative and smart they are. As we celebrate IWD 2019, here are some of the stories from our talented team.
“It’s tough trying to balance work, family and life – that is a fact. I’m lucky that my family are supportive and help at home. It also helps that management at CPM are flexible and I know I can work from home or on flexi hours when I need to. It creates a win-win for everyone!”
“Balance can only be achieved when you are surrounded by supportive people who believe in you. Whether it’s understanding & compassionate colleagues or reliable and trusting family & friends, it takes a village. It’s critical we support one another, both at work & home, always being true to ourselves and doing the things that make us happy, so we create environments that cultivate passion & success.”
“Whether it’s at work managing people or on the soccer pitch cheering on my boys, my work and home life is all about quality time for me and my family. Hard work? Absolutely! It’s about knowing the value I bring as a mum, wife and a leader that makes all the juggling worth it.”
“When people say the word balance to me it means being able to create the time and space to pursue the things I’m interested in. I work part-time so I can dedicate time to my artistic projects as well as servicing my brilliant clients at Retail Safari”.
“CPM allows me the flexibility to juggle priorities outside of a 9-5 construct and manage a true balance between personal and professional life. As a working Mum, having a company that recognises that my personal goals and the company goals are strongly aligned, and is more important than a traditional timetable. ”
“Working with a great mix of fun and culturally diverse people at Retail Safari naturally brings balance along with a great sense of comradery. Lunchtime runs with colleagues, walk and talk meetings, pub lunches and birthday celebrations along with lots of hard work creates a great sense of accomplishment and balance.”
