Just as we strive to conduct our business with the highest integrity, GCG is committed to fulfilling social responsibilities as a conscientious corporate citizen and respecting people in our workplace and in our community at large.
We have long recognized our responsibility to the communities where we do business and to others around us, and we encourage supporting the many organizations whose mission is to help underserved segments of society.

Diversity in the Workplace

We encourage our personnel to find the right balance in their lives between work life and personal life and to advance their personal development through education and training.
