Our Culture

 

COLLABORATION: LASTING STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIPS

If there’s one thing we pride ourselves on at FRCH, it’s our commitment to collaboration. It’s the cornerstone of our company and the driving force behind our revolutionary designs. Collaboration is what transforms good into great, and makes the ordinary extraordinary. Every project is “co-authored” by our clients, fellow consultants, and our employees – each working harmoniously together to create unique, visionary solutions.

 

CELEBRATION: WORK HARD. PLAY HARD

Our passion for our work is also echoed in how we celebrate; always unexpected, always dramatic… We’ve transformed our back parking lot into a farmyard, stocked with live animals in celebration of our trip to Keeneland Race Course, had employees take turns in the DJ booth during one of our monthly “Wingdings”. And let us not forget our annual Corndog Diorama competition, complete with sound and motion. These are just a few of the ways we love to mix business with our many pleasures.

 

INSPIRATION: WHERE GREAT IDEAS ARE BORN

Through relentless collaboration comes perhaps our most coveted tool of design: inspiration. It’s what stimulates our creative soul and enables us to push beyond the expected to innovation. Our insatiable thirst for inspiration is what drove a group of our employees to create our FRCH blog, Creative Fuel, where our colleagues share experiences, insights and interests from all facets of their daily lives; proving once again that great ideas can come from anywhere and anyone.

 

CHARACTER: WE'RE PEOPLE-PEOPLE

Simply put, a company is only as good as its people. Which is why it’s safe to say we’re a pretty remarkable company. Hiring the industry’s best designers, architects and strategic minds is certainly no accident. It is our #1 priority. Personable, approachable, honorable, professional, these are the personality traits we look for in our employees and what our clients have come to expect from our company.

 

COMMUNITY: CATALYSTS FOR CHANGE

Giving back and paying it forward have always played an important role in everything we do. For decades, we’ve reached out to those in need: United Way, American Cancer Society, Freestore Foodbank, ArtsWave, Architects For Humanity and Canstruction. We’ve dedicated our efforts to making the world a happier, healthier place by minimizing our environmental impact. If the world can inspire us, why not return the favor and inspire the world.

 

WELLNESS: EMPOWERING THE WHOLE YOU

FRCH is where the mind, body and spirit come to play. It’s why we offer a Work/Life Balance program that helps our employees better manage their lives at work and at home. As part of this we created FRCH Fit, which offers a variety of wellness initiatives that include a cycling group, free gym membership, and classes on nutrition and fitness. All because we recognize that health and happiness are crucial to our success, both as a company and as individuals.
