Cascade Compliance is registered as a Benefit Company because we believe in the power of business as a force for good. We are bringing the same conscientious, sophisticated review of our clients’ compliance practices to our own business and operations decisions. Our plan is to create and continuously review and improve the positive impact we make on an inclusive economy that works for everyone.
Cascade is a client service firm, first and foremost, and every employee is given the same respect and priority we give to our clients. We invest in our employees, providing careers, education and advancement opportunities, health and retirement benefits, and paid volunteer time off to encourage employees to give back to our community.
We are committed to diverse hiring practices and seek out Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprises when hiring outside services. We recognize the effects of racial inequalities are pervasive and profound. We know we can do more as we grow, and we can start now as we build a work environment that values diversity and inclusion.
