In the Community

Investing in the community, whether through donations or direct involvement has always been important to CUI; it is at the core of who we are. We recognize our potential to give and are thankful for all the opportunities we have had to share with our global community.

CUI Volunteers

CUI employees regularly serve the local community with their time and talents both in teams and as individuals. Each January CUI offices shut down on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and the company spends their time volunteering at local charities. Throughout the year CUI works closely with Hands On Greater Portland to connect employees with volunteer opportunities.

“The CUI Volunteer Program was created as a way to put our company’s core values into action. It’s important to CUI to make time to give back and build relationships within our community,” affirmed CUI’s VP of Human Resources, Katie McKenzie.

A percentage of total revenue generated by CUI’s rep network is set aside and donated to each firm on an annual basis as a charitable commission intended to be passed along to the charities of their choosing.
