For the third consecutive year, the CPI team was proud to receive an award recognizing CPI as one of Metropolitan Detroits Best and Brightest Companies to Work For 2017. In addition, CPI went on to receive an elite award from the Best and Brightest Committee, recognizing CPIs commitment to recruitment, selection and orientation.
The Best and Brightest Companies to Work For awards competition provides the business community with the opportunity to gain recognition, showcase their best practices and demonstrate why each of them would be an ideal place for employees to work.
It was my privilege to accept both awards on behalf of CPI. The true recipients of these awards are our employees. Its the people at CPI who truly make it one of the best and brightest places to work. We are also very proud of our dedicated veteran recruiting and hiring initiative. Everyone in our organization is committed to this effort because the military is the stalwart of our nation and they make exceptional employees, said Jay Vorobel, Vice President, Eastern Region, CPI.
As military personnel transition out of the United States Armed Forces into the civilian workforce, CPIs goal is to ensure that they are given the opportunity to use their unique skill sets and strong work ethic, in service of their new employers.
CPI has been finding employment opportunities for out-processing military personnel and veterans since 1982. CPI’s founder and CEO, Steve York is a Michigan native and a US Air Force Veteran, serving from 1968-1976. Steve served his first four years in Aircraft Maintenance achieving the rank of E-5 or Staff Sargent and the last four years, as a member of the Michigan Medical Recruiting Team. Because he has experience with military recruitment, Steve used what he knew to launch CPI, which would become one of the fastest growing Michigan businesses in the late eighties; just five years after his company launch.
CPI has remained profitable for more than 35 consecutive years, employing approximately 2,300 veterans since 1982.
“I’m extremely proud to be recognized as one of Detroit’s best and brightest companies, ” said Steve York, Founder & CEO, CPI. “Our team will continue to work hard everyday to assist our nation’s veterans in achieving their employment goals.”
