Taking care of our clients and our employees is a priority for Creatis, but we also strive to be a caring and contributing member of our Twin Cities professional community. Over the years, we have done many different types of volunteering activities at many wonderful non-profits across Minnesota. We will continue to place special emphasis on non-profits that, like Creatis, are dedicated to helping people improve skills, get training and prepare for interviews so they can find great jobs and live better lives! #CreatisCares
