Cydcor Invites Kids to the Office to Celebrate Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day

Cydcor-Take-Our-Daughters-Sons-Work-Day-2 Cydcor-Take-Our-Daughters-Sons-Work-Day-3

 

What do your kids think you do at work? Ours will find out this Thursday, April 28th, when Cydcor hosts the Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day program at our Agoura Hills, CA headquarters! On this day, Cydcor team members will have the opportunity to bring in their children who are between the ages of 5 and 18 so they can see how we work, where we work, and what we do at work. This is an amazing opportunity to model a career roadmap for these children and gives them a look at what their parent’s day-to-day is like here at Cydcor.

Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day is celebrating its 22nd anniversary this year. Cydcor could not miss out on this great opportunity. This national event was launched in 1994, and it encourages girls and boys to think about their futures without gender limitations. The event’s organizers expect over 1,700 kids to participate across the country. Cydcor will host between 8 and 15 kids for the event in our office.

This nationally-celebrated day builds bridges between parents and kids, as well as between parents and coworkers. Kids learn what Mom and Dad do during the day at that mysterious destination called “the office.” They discover how their parents solve problems and manage responsibilities outside of the home.

During Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, coworkers develop a deeper connection with one another as they meet each other’s family members. Meeting family members allows colleagues an opportunity to learn one another’s personal story. This experience builds more meaningful connections, which can improve how teams work and solve problems together.

Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day is more than just a chance for kids to see their parents’ offices and have lunch together. During their visit here at Cydcor, girls and boys will be exposed to the important jobs their parents have. Children will have the opportunity to participate in multiple workshops and activities that will help them start thinking on their future careers. A group of dedicated team members will teach participants firsthand about different career possibilities at Cydcor, including the important role education plays in having a successful career.

During Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, Cydcor team members and their kids are invited to dress in casual attire since it will be a day chock-full of fun activities. A special schedule has also been arranged for participants and their parents, including a welcome breakfast, event program, workshops and will get to play games at a “Fun Zone.” They will be at Cydcor having a fun day at the office, and we can’t wait to get started!

Don’t miss out on the fun! Be sure to follow Cydcor on Facebook and Instagram to see photos and videos from this remarkable experience.

Cydcor Changes Lives in Bolivia by Funding Its 4th Medical Mission

 Cydcor Changes Lives in Bolivia by Funding It’s 4th Medical Mission 1
Cydcor volunteers arrive in Bolivia on behalf of Operation Smile.

Cydcor has funded another medical mission through Operation Smile, this time taking place in Bolivia. Cydcor volunteers will be assisting the Operation Smile team during the medical mission which will provide cleft palate surgeries for children in need.

With the help of fundraising volunteers across the country, last June Cydcor raised more than $150,000 during the “Day of Smiles” fundraiser. As a result of the money raised, Cydcor was able to fund two medical missions- this one taking place in Bolivia and another one where the location is yet to be determined in Spring 2016.

This isn’t the first time that Cydcor has funded an Operation Smile medical mission trip. In early June 2012, Cydcor volunteers traveled to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to change the lives of children in need. In early 2014, Cydcor volunteers traveled to traveled to San Cristobal de las Casas, Mexico and were able to help provide many surgeries with the money raised through Operation Smile fundraisers. Finally in November 2014, Cydcor joined Operation Smile on a medical mission to Guatemala. Overall, Cydcor has raised more than $850,000 to sponsor these life-saving medical missions.

Each mission sends doctors, volunteers, and equipment to an area with limited healthcare access and provides screenings and surgeries for children. Cleft palates often result in complications to eating, drinking, speaking and even breathing. Many infants do not survive this condition if left untreated. Operation Smile and Cydcor hope to restore many smiles around the world and give these children a chance to thrive.

This year, six Cydcor volunteers who made outstanding fundraising efforts were recognized with the special honor of assisting the medical teams and families in Bolivia. They arrived on March 9th and will be there until the 16th of March.

A very rewarding aspect of assisting on these missions is having the chance to spend time with the families of the children undergoing surgery. Cydcor volunteers also help conduct screenings, entertain the children while they wait for surgery, and provide support and comfort to families throughout the process. Their contribution is very emotionally demanding but a very rewarding experience overall.

Cydcor is proud of its partnership with Operation Smile and the success of the Day of Smiles fundraising campaign. The donations raised through this campaign will allow more less-fortunate children access to medical care.

Thank you to everyone in the organization who worked so hard on the fundraisers. Let’s continue changing lives once smile at a time!

You can make a donation to Cydcor’s Operation Smile campaign today and support this great cause!

Healthy Habits for Colon Cancer Prevention

Developing a healthy lifestyle improves your overall health and aids in the prevention of colon cancer and other diseases.

Did you know that colon cancer is the third most common cancer in the United States and the second leading cause of cancer death? People over the age of 50 are the most affected, though the disease appears to be on the rise in younger people. Individuals with a family history of the disease are two to three times more likely to be diagnosed with colon cancer.

What do you know about this disease? Here are some tips to increase your awareness of colon cancer and support its prevention:

Schedule a Screening

Your best protection from colon cancer is to schedule a screening test. The disease is most easily treatable when found in its early stages. A variety of screening tests are available, so consult your healthcare provider to find the test that’s right for you. Most people begin to get regular screening tests after age 50.

Quit Smoking

If you smoke, quit. Smoking raises risk of cancer considerably. Smokers are also at risk for heart disease, stroke, emphysema, and 15 kinds of cancer. You will begin to heal shortly after your last cigarette. If you need help quitting, call 1-800-QUIT-NOW or visit smokefree.gov.

Watch Your Weight

Obesity and weight gain are associated with 11 different cancers, including colon cancer. Eat a diet rich in fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains to stay at a healthy weight. Your well-balanced diet should include adequate amounts of calcium and vitamin D.

Exercise Regularly

Regular physical activity reduces the risk posed by many illnesses, colon cancer included. Aim for 30 minutes of moderate exercise every day. Find activities that you enjoy, like riding a bicycle, dancing, or gardening.

Colon cancer is one of the most preventable diseases. Reduce your risk with regular screenings after the age of 50—or earlier if you’re in a high-risk group. Currently, there are over one million colon cancer survivors in the United States.

Help Cydcor continue spread awareness of colon cancer prevention and provide support to those battling this difficult disease. There are many ways to help, from making donations to wearing blue this Friday in honor of those struggling with colon cancer.

Join Cydcor employees as we work together to find a cure for colon cancer. Wear dark blue this Friday, March 4th and share your photos on Facebook by using the hashtags #BlueForBarb and #Cydcor.

What is Colon Cancer?

8 Ways to Prevent Colon Cancer

Cydcor Volunteers Wear Blue to Support the Fight Against Colon Cancer

Cydcor Volunteers Wear Blue to Support the Fight Against Colon Cancer
You’re invited to join Cydcor employees in the fight for those afflicted with colon cancer. Education and financial support are needed.

March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month. On Friday, March 4th, Cydcor employees will wear dark blue, the same blue as the Colon Cancer Alliance’s star logo, to honor those battling and affected by colon cancer.

The Cydcor team has taken this cause to heart. They’re devoted to creating awareness about colon cancer and its prevention because recently, it’s become a personal battle. Barbara Majeski, a dedicated Cydcor philanthropist and Operation Smile philanthropy ambassador, has been diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer.

Barbara has been a role model for the Cydcor team and has always gone above and beyond to help others. She has led Cydcor’s fundraising efforts to help children in need around the world.

Barbara is an inspiration to everyone at Cydcor and her impact is global. As proof, Operation Smile named Barbara their Humanitarian of the Year for her record-breaking fundraising.

Cydcor has raised more than $850,000 to sponsor life-saving medical missions providing free cleft lip and palate surgeries. Unfortunately, Barbara’s 6-month treatment plan prevents her from taking part in Cydcor’s Operation Smile 4th and 5th missions – taking place in Bolivia and the Dominican Republic this spring—but she looks forward to returning as Cydcor’s philanthropy advisor and as a cancer survivor.

Now, it is Cydcor’s turn to help Barbara create awareness of this often-preventable disease. Barbara speaks from her heart: “If I can help spare one person from the misery that cancer brings, then I have given meaning and purpose to this experience.”

In Cydcor’s most recent YouTube video, Barbara speaks to how fortunate she has been to have access to the most cutting-edge technology since her diagnosis—something that many people do not have.

“This experience has further fueled my understanding that we need to always be looking for ways to help people that don’t have access to quality medical care,” she says.

Please listen with your heart and join our effort in the fight against colon cancer. Learn more about Barbara and her experience battling cancer here: http://www.barbaramajeski.com/blog

Cydcor’s 2015 Thanksgiving Food Drive Supports Local Families

Cydcor voluteers collect food and deliver them to families in need for Thanksgiving 2015.
Cydcor voluteers collect food and deliver them to families in need for Thanksgiving 2015.

Once again this year, Cydcor team members organized a Thanksgiving Food Drive where several Cydcor employees donated and delivered food to families in need.

Cydcor’s Thanksgiving Food Drive was organized to benefit Earths Magnet Elementary School in Newbury Park, CA. The National Wildlife Federation Fund has recognized this school as one of the Top 10 Eco-Schools in the country, meaning that it uses environmental education as a platform for teaching students about technology, engineering, and math. Students learn the importance of creating sustainable businesses. Working with the support of the school, Cydcor encourages community sustainability with this annual food drive. Being able to provide families in need with a Thanksgiving dinner year-after-year allows the Cydcor team to support people in a meaningful way.

Cydcor employees readily volunteer because they’re organized, skilled at getting things done, and ready to take on any opportunity they meet—especially if it’s one that helps struggling families and strengthens community connections.

“It is amazing to see a group of people come together and be so passionate about helping others in need. Holidays are about spending time with loved ones, and I am happy we can contribute and make a difference for these families,” explained one Cydcor volunteer.

Many Cydcor employees donated food and raised enough money to provide meals for 90 families. In addition, Cydcor’s executive team donated a total of $1,800 through payroll deductions, which allowed the organizers to purchase $20 Vons gift cards for each family.

Cydcor has taken the time to examine the true meaning of Thanksgiving bounty and thankfulness. The annual Thanksgiving Food Drive expresses the company’s core values and commitment to caring for community members suffering difficult times. Cydcor continues its tradition of nurturing the community and turning need into an opportunity—so that families in need can see a future that is just a little bit brighter.

Cydcor Summer Internship Program 2015

Cydcor 2015 Summer Interns Group
The Cydcor 2015 Summer Interns!

Keep up with the latest company news and announcements from Cydcor by connecting with us on LinkedIn.

Cydcor, the leading provider of professional in-person sales teams, provided a select group of students the opportunity of a lifetime: an internship program at Cydcor’s offices in Agoura Hills, CA. Each year, the company provides gifted students with the prospect of building business experience in a real-world corporate setting. Their assignments are designed to match their current interests or studies, such as event planning, finance, or marketing. The interns receive special training and are expected to accomplish real work in their departments. Cydcor is proud to provide this opportunity each year, and help these talented students craft a vision for their professional life after college.

Cydcor’s Summer 2015 interns provided the following feedback on their experience working at our offices in Agoura Hills, CA:

 

Juan H.
Cydcor Summer 2015 Interns Juan

People here at Cydcor are very welcoming and help interns experience the real business world by treating them as an employee who belongs to their team. In several projects that I worked on, I had the freedom to use my own methodology. For example, when Crystal Fernandez assigned me new tasks, I had the freedom to use the approach I was most comfortable with. One of the best things of working at Cydcor this summer was the opportunity to attend Lunch and Learn. It provides interns the opportunity to explore different departments within the company, and to understand the culture of the company.

What role did you have as an intern, and what was your primary project?

I worked as a business development analyst. My main role within this internship was to provide effective and accurate market research because we are looking for future opportunities to expand our business. Furthermore, this position provided insight into consulting jobs since I was assigned to work on several issues within the department.

How would you describe Cydcor’s company culture?

Cydcor has a unique culture because its main objective is to enhance employees’ productivity by providing them a happy, relaxed, and professional environment. Companies are always concerned about their dress code and professionalism, but what is different about Cydcor is that we perceive results from internal sources rather than external ones. What I mean is that Cydcor’s dress code is less strict than those in other corporations because their main goal is to make an employee feel at home and happy. And when you have happy employees, you get better productivity, efficiency, and good results.

What experiences and new skills gained were most valuable?

After working for Cydcor, I was able to nurture my skills regarding market research analysis, executive decisions, and teamwork experience. Yet, the most valuable skill I gained was time management. My supervisor Crystal Fernandez helped me develop organizational and planning skills because she wanted me to always plan my activities following a schedule, which I feel is a great asset since it enhances one’s output.

What would you say to other students considering an internship at Cydcor?

If you are someone who puts the time, effort, and passion to learn new things, then Cydcor is the right place for you to learn. This company not only gives you the opportunity to express your ideas, but your idea can potentially become one that the executive board could implement. How great would it be for student to have your idea implemented by a company? If you want to contribute to a company’s change and structure come and join Cydcor.

 

Julian G.

Cydcor Summer 2015 Interns Julian

My journey at Cydcor has been very unique. From the moment I had my first interview, I knew this is where I wanted to spend my summer. Everyone was extremely friendly and humble, and they even told me they would provide me with mentorship and free lunch. What more could a student ask for?

What experiences and new skills gained were most valuable?

Cydcor’s program has been both fascinating and challenging. They not only provided me with interesting tasks, but they were also very challenging. It allowed me to learn every day, developing skills in Excel and Business Intelligence, a software application used to analyze an organization’s financial data.

What would you say to other students considering an internship at Cydcor?

I highly recommend interning at Cydcor because I believe that the things I have learned during the internship will give me a competitive advantage when recruiting next year for a full time job.

 

 Yangzi Z.
Cydcor Summer 2015 Interns Yangzi

There were many things I enjoyed this summer at Cydcor: the working environment, company culture, the mentorship program, and the Lunch and Learn workshops. And the coolest CEO!

What role did you have as an intern, and what was your primary project?

I worked in the accounting department, mostly providing support. I also worked on several projects, including profitability analysis, invoice reconciliation, invoice recording, bank statement reconciliation, and client financial statement analysis.

How would you describe Cydcor’s company culture?

Company culture is my favorite thing about Cydcor. Personally, I think instead of being a corporate company, Cydcor is more like a big family. Everybody is so close to each other and overall it is a great place to work, learn, and grow.

 

Tina H.

 Cydcor Summer 2015 Interns Tina

The working environment is collaborative and energetic. I got to learn about what different departments do and how the entire company functions. The people here are friendly and always willing to help.

What role did you have as an intern, and what was your primary project?

I was working for compliance and quality assurance. My primary projects were audit projects to ensure we have quality sales.

How would you describe Cydcor’s company culture?

Cydcor’s company culture is very friendly and collaborative.

What experiences and new skills gained were most valuable?

I really enjoyed the intern project I worked on with all the other interns. I think it’s challenging and helped me improve my problem solving and team work skills. Being in an office and working on real life tasks also helped me learn about how I should act in a business setting.

What would you say to other students considering an internship at Cydcor?

It’ll be a fun learning experience. Don’t miss out.

 

Miguel B.

Cydcor Summer 2015 Interns Miguel

What role did you have as an intern, and what was your primary project?

My role as an intern was to help out HR and Learning and Development with the open enrollment presentation and the new hire surveys.

How would you describe Cydcor’s company culture?

Based off my personal experience, I would describe Cydcor’s culture as motivating, enthusiastic, positive and joyful.

What experiences and new skills gained were most valuable?

I think the graphic design and video-editing skills I developed was the greatest thing I took away from this experience.

What would you say to other students considering an internship at Cydcor?

I would tell them how great of an experience I’ve had and how much I’ve learned over the course of 10 weeks.

 

Sam C.

Cydcor-Summer-2015-Interns Sam

 The office has a pool table, Ping-Pong, a lot of free food, and a gym. I have friends that spent their summers getting coffee, making copies, or refreshing their emails. I also think that having other interns my age and sharing a group project was great for my overall experience. I am also working in the newest department at Cydcor so there isn’t really a “protocol” on how to do things, so in my projects I was given a lot of freedom.

What role did you have as an intern, and what was your primary project?

I worked on a digital resource center that the field can use with all of their sales and to make their training more efficient. I also was one of six interns working on the internship project. For the project, we came up with specific recommendations to improve the company and presented our findings to the executive team.

How would you describe Cydcor’s company culture?

It’s welcoming. I think that the people around me reached out at all times and I never felt like a burden, but that people genuinely want to help. I feel as though I know many different people in this big office from all different departments. The atmosphere can be fun and relaxed, but also motivated and focused on the work that needs to be done.

What experiences and new skills gained were most valuable?

I think just being in a real world environment is the thing I will take away the most from this summer. I would also say that working with other people to solve problems has been a skill I have acquired or improved this summer.

What would you say to other students considering an internship at Cydcor?

I would say be prepared to meet a lot of great people and that it is a fun time. I would say that you are going to work hard, but the work is meaningful and it is for people you like and respect.
