At CMI we believe that a company’s success is built on the foundation of its culture. We work hard to ensure that CMI is an inclusive, positive place for all. To do this, we focus on three things; enabling honest feedback, encouraging recognition of success and empowering our staff to make the changes they want to see.

Ensuring our employees can have their voices heard and make frank comments is how we grow. Whether that is at our weekly all-staff briefings and town hall questions, regular employee surveys, or at our annual all-staff strategy day, you will have the opportunity to start a conversation on how we do better.


Our culture of recognising success is why we see so many of our people going above and beyond in the workplace. From shout-outs and instant rewards to annual prizes, we want to make sure wherever great work is being done, we’re celebrating it.

We know that the best people to improve the day-to-day experience of working for CMI are our employees. That could be anything from rearranging the office social space to arranging an end of the week activity.
