At CFB our vision is simple in that we aim to be the most respected advisory group in our industry. Of course having a vision must be supported by a pathway to get you to your destination; a pathway that clients, employees, and business partners can journey along together.
Those who walk this path will experience the professionalism of CFB that is underpinned by our corporate values. Our values guide our daily actions and inform our decision-making cycles.
So what are our values?
Client centric, Adaptive, Reliable, and Energetic
You will note in the values statement, our CFB team is unified by an overarching responsibility to serve our clients. The client is the unifying purpose of all our business actions.
Having values is important, however, the next step is ensuring we keep them alive and affirmed amongst our team of Paraplanners, Client Support Officers and Advisers on a daily basis.
On a monthly basis, CFB pauses for a working lunch to discuss and analyse our actions and achievements over the previous month. We do this as we view ourselves as a learning organisation that is on a journey of continuous improvement. At the commencement of this meeting, we read out the CARE award nominations for the month. These nominations are peer nominations in which each employee nominates other employees who have demonstrated CARE values throughout the month. The employee who gains the most nominations wins the Agro Doll CARE Award for the month. Want to see who our current CARE Award Employee of the Month is?
Agro Doll CARE Award
CFB uses the AGRO Doll as part of its CARE Awards process as it reminds us of our Charity of Choice – The Children’s Hospital Foundation. During the annual B105 Children’s Hospital (now Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital) Appeal, the Agro Doll was auctioned to raise much-needed funds for the hospital.
Back in 2013 CFB submitted the winning bid and won the doll. We donate the doll back each year and submit an opening bid of $1000.00 to commence the auction. We plan on winning Agro back every year however if there are businesses out there that can out do us….that is great we accept the challenge as all money raised goes to the Children’s Hospital Foundation.
