Growing a business with integrity and fairness is something you have to plan for from the beginning, whether you own a start-up or a decades-old business like ours. 

It’s good to establish a company mission and vision that includes the community you serve. Your mission is a key to creating a brand that endures and attracts potential customers and partners. Having a positive, community oriented business adds value to society, builds loyalty and increases the overall happiness of your team too.

As the owner of Uptown Studios, my responsibility is to create a stable and productive work environment. A place where each employee feels safe, that they are growing their career skills and are being rewarded for the great work they do. 

Good Businesses Provide:

  1. Fair and equal wages
    Including paid holidays, vacation, sick leave and 401K.
  2. Health Care coverage – including dental and vision
    We pay 100% and try to get the highest level of coverage available.
  3. The best equipment 
    If someone needs something that will make their work better they only need to let us know and explain what the benefits will be.
  4. Team trainings and individual plans for growth
    Things change too quickly not to have training built into your work weeks.
  5. Americans With Disabilities Act Compliance
    Plan for all abilities when you are selecting your location or converting your building. We go beyond the physical walls and plan for ADA compliance in our website designs too. Make it easy for all people to connect with you – whether in person or on line.

Employees Have Responsibilities:

  1. Creating products and campaigns that are good for our society
    Thinking about impact in our communities with what we create.
  2. Printing only when necessary
    Making recommendations to our clients on alternatives that will prove even more effective if implemented correctly.
  3. Working within their teams and having the hard-to-have conversations
    Our self-management model requires that each team member is able to talk about difficult items with their work groups and the team as a whole. Developing good communication skills is a big requirement and we invest in the training that goes along with this skill.
  4. Staying up on their training
    Exploring new directions to take us forward.
  5. Keeping our clients happy
    Training them with enthusiasm. Getting back to clients quickly and being efficient with our time.

We would love to work with you. Contact US and tell us about your current projects.
