Mindy Bryngelson, P.E., Believes Family is an Important CGA Core Value
Family means you can be flexible with your time. You can be there when your family needs you to be there. It has been a Core Value of CGA’s for many years and is an invaluable benefit of our company.
CGA set up our remote working environment in 2006. This allowed me to work from home just as easily as being in the office. It was this forward thinking that allowed her to cut back on her office time so she could spend time with her young children while still building her professional career.
I have seen Family in action. We flex with employees’ schedules. An employee needs to get their work done, but how they do that is up to them. If someone needs to step away, they can and not feel guilty about it.
Mindy has also seen Family in action during a number of employees’ major health issues and storm devastation. The firm came together as an extended family to help the employee and their family in tough times. This included extending additional PTO, providing meals, assisting with home maintenance, cleaning up after major storms, and even building accessible ramps. We are more than co-workers; we are Family.
