CoreDial’s motto has always been “success starts here,” and CEO Alan Rihm says that creative, innovative and world-class team members are crucial to that success. Inspired by Jim Collins’ Good to Great, Rihm has worked to create a culture devoted to tenants like entrepreneurship, accountability and candidness. This “constant drumbeat” has allowed CoreDial’s culture to grow, mature and attract new talent. Today, CoreDial’s value system has manifested in many ways, including a Books and Brews book club, which brings everyone in the company together to discuss a book over beer, and a peer recognition program called Success Starts with Me. Recently, CoreDial launched its first social responsibility campaign to promote practices like recycling, and as a result, waste reduction has become an important part of company life.
