Business Interiors’ “5-Cs”

Commitment to Employees

One way Business Interiors measures its success is by the satisfaction and retention of employees. Our culture promotes solutions-based thinking and resourcefulness. Goals and initiatives are addressed in a structured annual planning process that involves all corporate teams. Employee accomplishments are celebrated throughout the year at informal luncheons, at our annual awards celebration, and in the B.Eye (an employee newsletter).

Customer Focus

Business Interiors maintains close relationships with our customers through one-on-one open, easy access communication. Our customers receive individual service from a Project Team. Functioning like a business unit, each team is self-directed and balanced with expertise, experience and training. Customers are also given the opportunity to take part in an annual third party survey. All feedback is highly valued. Our services and product offerings remain relevant through customer directives.

Constant Cooperation

Business Interiors seeks out win-win situations for the company, our employees, our customers, our suppliers, and our community. By working together we can obtain our goals — individually and collectively.

Continuous Improvement

Business Interiors remains open to what is important to our employees, our customers and our suppliers so that we maintain our high-level of service and streamline our operations. Processes are periodically analyzed to eliminate unnecessary steps, reduce cycle times and cost. Learning is ongoing. From sales, design to operations, our employees receive extensive process and product training.

Concern for the Environment

In addition to promoting sustainable work environments, Business Interiors is committed to maintaining our own. We weigh the impacts of our business decisions against the costs to the ecological, social and economic systems they effect. Our environmental policy outlines our objectives and action plans.
