Posted on April 9, 2021

DiversityGlobe St. recently released their list of Best Places to Work for 2021, and we are honored to be included.

They said, “Founder of the development and investment management company, CGI Real Estate Investment Strategies, Gidi Cohen cultivates the entrepreneurial spirit from which the company was established in 2013. Acknowledging that the office is where employees spend the majority of their week, Cohen fosters a family-like workplace environment where employees across all levels of the organization are encouraged to think outside the box and voice ideas. This coincides with the company’s efforts in cross-training and offering educational opportunities.

CGI also encourages employees to gain valuable experience outside of their expertise, in order to share knowledge, strengthen teams and develop a well-rounded and skilled staff. This additionally helps the company to promote from within. CGI also seeks feedback from staff prior to implementing changes. One result has been recently revamped communication processes and a new internal platform to share information, ideas and solutions company-wide. While transitioning from a boutique company to a larger, more diverse firm, CGI remains extremely conscious of not over-working or over-stressing employees.

During the pandemic, CGI developed a program to assist residents who may no longer have been able to afford their current unit, and helped to place them in a building better-suited for their financial needs. At this time, the firm additionally partnered with two local charity groups in Los Angeles to deliver food to those in need.”
