The Government Experience Event is your ticket into a community of experience management professionals committed to delivering exceptional experiences. This is where pioneers & experience champions unite to shape, experience, & challenge the future of government experience (GX): customer experience (CX), employee experience (EX), and Voice of the Public (VOP).
Join us to hear how government and business leaders are reinventing and changing their organizations to be truly customer-centric.
CFI Group works together with these organizations to provide our clients with the most advanced solutions.
At CFI Group, we believe in working hard and playing hard. But it doesn't stop there. We also believe that it's important to give back to the communities in which we work. Employees have opportunities throughout the year to participate in community service such as Habitat for Humanity or Food Gatherers. We also take time to get to know each other outside the office at company outings and holiday events. And we love our corporate dog, Wilson.
