Team Member Testimonials

November 2014

Greg and I attended the Dallas Morning News luncheon this past Friday. Mike Rawlings, Dallas Mayor, was the speaker. I wanted to share his main points because I couldn’t help thinking about Cornerstone with each point he made. Mike is the past CEO of Tracy Locke advertising firm and Pizza Hut. He is a wise leader for sure. Here were his top 5 key ingredients for a successful and happy workplace (in no particular order):

  • Care for People
  • Culture
  • Healthy Competition
  • Reward and Recognition
  • Diversity
  • As our fearless leaders, you and Judy both have created and fostered all five of the ingredients above. Thanks for making Cornerstone an awesome place to work and for being among the ‘Top 100 Workplaces’ year after year. You Rock!
