Community Impact Newspaper is vested in the communities it serves as well as their employees that make the newspaper great. Owners John and Jennifer Garrett launched the first edition of Community Impact Newspaper in 2005 with three full-time employees covering Round Rock and Pflugerville. Now, Community Impact Newspaper distributes hyperlocal news and information to millions of local residents and business owners. The organization is committed to the values of:
FAITH: We hold firmly to the belief that we are here to accomplish something great.
PASSION: We are driven to deliver the best to our readers, our advertisers and one another.
QUALITY: We define excellence as our minimum standard.
INNOVATION: We achieve success by looking beyond traditional practices.
INTEGRITY: We are uncompromising in our ethics and values.
"Being a family-owned and operated business from day one, Community Impact Newspaper has always maintained a nurturing culture that strives to allow its employees to operate as a professional while making sure their family's needs are being attended to as well. We don't just say that work/life balance is important, we really believe it and make business decisions and structure our teams in ways that fosters that harmony. Do we get more buy-in as a company because of the policy's we have in place? Probably. But what's important to us is to know that holistically our employees are in a good place both at home and at work."
