Onboarding and Training Programs

All new employees are welcomed into CBIZ through onboarding, a process during which we integrate new team members into the organization, prepare them to succeed at their job and encourage them to become fully engaged, productive members of the company. We provide access to opportunities that allow our team members to further develop their talents and abilities.

Steven L. Gerard Legacy Award

The Steven L. Gerard Legacy Award (SLG Award) was established in 2016 in honor of the tremendous impact that our former CEO has had on our company. Nowhere is his impact more evident than in the development of the values and culture we now collectively embrace.

Each year, we honor Steve's legacy by giving the SLG Award to the employee who has most exemplified one or more of our core values.

The recipient receives recognition on our intranet, a trophy for their office, and has their name engraved on the permanent trophy in our corporate office in Cleveland. 

Our 2020 Award recipient was Deepa Menon, Managing Director, CBIZ Valuation Group, Dallas.
