Building on a nearly 36-year legacy of world-class excellence in sales and service training and behavior and culture change, Cohen Brown is committed to ensuring a future in which we can continue helping people and communities across the globe.

Environment

Cohen Brown is committed to sound environmental stewardship. We’re improving our environment by reducing the use of paper and becoming more digital through our virtual delivery platform, CBway. The CBway virtual delivery platform no longer requires training books as all of the learning is done digitally. We know that our “green” initiatives can have a significant impact on the global environment. Across our international offices, we are dedicated to ensuring a healthier planet for future generations and making Cohen Brown a great place to work.

How We Define Diversity

Diversity refers to the differences and similarities of all kinds that matter to our employees, the environment, our clients and stakeholders that influence our behaviors and actions.

We are committed to recognizing and appreciating the variety of characteristics that make individuals unique (different) in an atmosphere that promotes and celebrates individual and collective achievement aligned with our values.

In Our Communities

We are committed to using our financial strength to make a difference for the people, families and communities we serve.
