“Working in Human Resources for many years, I always knew that people were extremely important. However, at Compass I have experienced that even more. I’ve seen how our people are so important to not only each other, but to the clients we provide amazing service to every day. The key is leveraging everyone’s diverse strengths. When we say it’s all about the people, it really is.”

“Working here has made me more open-minded, flexible, and appreciative of teamwork. I’ve learned that setting goals is what makes succeeding more attainable.

“There are always opportunities to develop your career at Compass. They offer training courses, and every training course is like watering a plant. They all have something I can implement, learn, or share that will help me grow and get better at what I do. Working here, I’ve realized it’s empowering to discover you’re capable of more. At Compass, everyone is a “go to” person where they can count on me as much as I count on them.”
