Q: Over the past year, what extra actions have you taken to strengthen your company’s culture and keep employees engaged, motivated and happy at work?

Brad Friedman, CEO and President, City Paper Company

“This past year, City Paper Company has accommodated our employees by maintaining a flex schedule. While we do have a majority of people back in the office, if anyone needs to spend a few days a week at home, we support that as we know and trust our employees to get the job done. It’s important that we keep communication open and continue to be transparent with our thoughts about the current state of business, as well as how we plan to continue to move forward as a company. Because of the diversity of our business, we have been extremely busy this year, so our team has been fully engaged in making sure our clients are properly supported. With the flexibility we provide in conjunction with the overall support to our team, I think we have a very happy and motivated team here at City Paper.”
