How Our Team Fueled Progression in 2022!


I started working with CMRCA in February 2022 on a three-month human resources project to refresh and create company policies and incentives with the management team. In the process, the company values were always considered to ensure the outcome would support team motivation and maintain the strong bond fostered within the company over the past 20 years. So, the “The Fuel Your Progression Health and Wellness Grant” was formed based on one of our critical core value of Seek Growth and Development.

What is the Fuel Your Progression Health and Wellness Grant about?

In our co-founder’s Josh’s words:

“This grant is meant to help drive a culture and team that is focused on their personal and physical well being. We know from research that when people feel healthy, they are generally happier, more creative, and more collaborative and we want to build a culture that celebrates looking after our health both personally and as a team.”

  • To Inspire and Support team members by providing financial and motivational support to pursue their own physical health and well ness goals.
  • To Lead By Example. We want to set an example for other companies about what can be achieved when an organization takes care of its people. We also want to attract those who are also focused on well being to join our team.
  • To Build Community. When our team members get out into the wilderness and meet communities and other outdoor enthusiasts, our community grows and we expand our network making it easier to adventure and build experiences in the future.
  • To Innovate and Create new experiences that can have tremendous impact. We want our team members to be inspired when they are out on the rock, underground or on the trail and come up with new, exciting ideas for experiences, events, staff retreats and more.
