become a part of something special.

join our award winning family

"Family" - It's the word we see most in our quarterly team member surveys.  In these surveys we ask every team member if they feel their voice matters, if they trust and respect their leader, and if they feel their team members are supporting them.  We also solicit ideas for improvement - in our business and in our culture.  The ideas are plentiful and the verdict is consistent . . . people here feel they are part of a family. We're not perfect. But we are obsessed with listening to each other and improving over time.  That's the kind of culture you'll be part of at CARite.

how our culture


We built our culture together.  How? By asking everyone at CARite what our values should be and by using that direct feedback as the foundation for who we are.  Our values are more than sound bytes - Our values guide who we reward and what we tolerate.

how we grow


We evolve our culture together.  How? By soliciting feedback from our team members on an ongoing basis.  We may not act on every single suggestion, but we will respond to every single one We share the rationale for what we don't do and the timeline for what we plan to do - We know that the best ideas come from our team members and if we want ideas to keep flowing we have to show that we listen . Evolving our culture, and our Company, is a team effort.

We fail and succeed as one family.  We are not a 'gotcha' workplace. When things go wrong, as they invariably do, we stick together. We know that innovation can't happen in an environment where honest mistakes aren't tolerated .  We encourage new ideas and we try to learn quickly from our missteps as we continue to grow our business.
