Creative Circle thrives only when our people do, so we honor our organizational values of openness, teamwork and integrity. We work in an energetic and positive environment that is professional and supportive. Our jobs are challenging, and since we know it’s natural to stumble, we give our people the time and mentoring they need to grow into their success.

We also like to celebrate our successes and hard work with happy hours and other fun events. Everyone at Creative Circle shares common goals – goals we achieve with teamwork.
Our community spirit extends beyond company walls and into our neighborhoods. The Chicago office participated in the Cycle for Survival event, benefiting rare cancers, for example, and every Monday, the Phoenix office does a 5K. Many of our individual employees are involved with charities of their choice, and the company supports their efforts with paid time off dedicated to supporting non-profit ventures.
