- It’s time to PowerUP your career!
Do you want to improve your networking skills or enhance your personal brand? Would you like to know how your colleagues navigate their careers? This summer, nearly 900 Southern California Capital Group associates got a chance to explore such topics during the PowerUP Your Career! expo in our Irvine office. The one-of-a-kind week focused on career development, offering workshops, panel discussions, and networking events.
- Shining the sunlight on our Summer Associates
Want to know what it’s like to be a Capital Group Summer Associate? Spend time with four of them—Risa, Chris, Emily and Larry—as they share the impact of their projects and a few highlights from their time at Capital.
- Capital Group communities welcome you!
Over the past few years, Capital Group communities have been springing up all around. Often referred to as affinity or resource groups at other companies, there are more than 25 communities throughout Capital, and more than 2,500 associates are already involved with more communities coming soon.
- ‘Tis Always the Season
Della Stott in our Indianapolis office is a fine example of an associate who takes full advantage of what Capital Group can do for one’s charitable giving passion. She’s been involved with the Susan G. Komen Foundation for Breast Cancer Awareness and Research, Central Indiana and Capital has made generous contributions to the foundation in support of Della’s efforts.
- Health Screenings: A Catalyst for Change
Sure, you know how old you are—and probably how tall—but what about those more elusive personal health numbers such as your blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose? Finding out where you stand on these numbers is a great opportunity to assess your overall health and wellness and, in some cases, identify health risks you may not be aware of.
- Hello Across the Years: A Conversation Between Val Saber and Shina McAlister
Val Saber joined Capital Group in 1979 as an accountant. Based in Irvine, Val is now a Business Analyst for the broader Service organization. Across the floor in the same building sits Shina McAlister, who started recently as a Retirement Plan Services Representative. So, what would one of Capital’s most tenured associates—and one of our newest—have to say to one another about Capital, career development, and our core values? It turns out, quite a lot!
- Love Your Career
We asked Capital Group associates in offices around the world what they love about their roles. Check out the video to see what drives them to be their very best every day.
- Gobble, Gobble Give
Senior order management analyst Charles Hassell has an infectious spirit of giving that’s legendary in Los Angeles. Recently, his giving spirit caught on in a big way, when nearly 200 associates participated in the sixth annual “Gobble Gobble Give” (G3) event. Each year, Southern California associates and their families gather on the morning of Thanksgiving to assemble meals and clothing/toiletry kits before distributing them to the underserved and homeless in surrounding Los Angeles neighborhoods.
- Tour de Capital
How long does it take Capital Group associates to cycle more than 3,500 miles? Just one day, when they all work together. Recently, 140 CG associates from 12 CG offices got on their bikes and together cycled a combined 3,549 miles (5,712 km). That’s far enough to embark on a truly grand tour of Europe, cross the U.S., or—with a bit of imagination—travel from Singapore to Tokyo.
- Speed Networking
Recently, nearly 50 associates gathered in Los Angeles for an afternoon of “speed networking” hosted by the CG NextGen Community. Participants, stationed across from one another at tables around the room, had three minutes to introduce themselves, highlight special skills and note career goals before moving on to different individuals. Needless to say, everyone talked fast!
