Thank you — two of the most powerful words one can offer to another. Simple yet certain to bring out smiles and pride.
Recognition and gratitude are vital to our “notthebigcompany” culture. Publishing Concept’s talented and passionate associates deserve to know they are exceptional. PCI actively pursues meaningful ways to say, “Thank you for a job well done.”
- The Rockwell F. Clancy Award: Our highest award, and close to the heart of Drew Clancy, PCI President, is named in honor of his grandfather, whose values and honesty are the foundation for Publishing Concepts’ success.
- Seven associates whose lives exemplify our Seven Driving Values and Seven Client Promises are presented with this coveted award.
- PCI shuts down the entire company, discusses important business matters, and concludes by honoring outstanding PCI Associates. All eyes watch, as Drew Clancy calls each recipient to the front of the room, personally thanks them, and presents their award with a handshake.
- Top Performers: The highest performing PCI Sales Associates receive merits ranging from trophies to framed certificates. Each year, 84 associates are recognized with gratitude.
- Promise Award: Each month, seven associates who actively live our promises, receive framed certificates with a personalized description of their achievements.
- Cabby Stories and Star Awards: During department meetings, associates are quick to verbalize the valuable work of colleagues. These accolades name the promise demonstrated, followed by a description of the associate’s actions.
- PCI gifts numerous other “thank you” treats: Gift cards, cash, Rangers game, private bowling alley suite with catered gourmet Italian cuisine, birthday and PCI anniversary celebrations, and unlimited free ice cream and root beer floats for special accomplishments.
Our “notthebigcompany” culture lives by Servant Leadership. We hire the best people who fit the right job and truly appreciate excellence. Our associates make it easy to say, “Thank you.”

Did you know that you spend 45% or more of your waking hours at work?
Here’s a quick breakdown:
- 168 = The number of hours in a given week (24 hours x 7 days = 168)
- 56 = The number of hours we sleep (assuming we sleep an average 8 hours each a night)
- 112 = The number of hours we are awake each week (168 – 56 = 112)
- 50 = The number of hours you are at work (assuming a 40-hour week), driving to and from work (assuming one hour a day), and getting ready for work (one hour per day)
- 50 / 112 = 45%!!
And that doesn’t include the hours we spend thinking about work when we are with our friends and families (not a good thing)!
45% is a big number.
45% means we spend a large percentage of lives at work.
45% is one of the reasons that at notthebigcompany, we believe that work should be MEANINGFUL. At PCI, we want to make a difference in the lives of others with the work we do. It is a key driver that helps define what we mean by notthebigcompany.
Publishing Concepts is a proud sponsor, and participant, in “Relay for Life,” the American Cancer Society’s largest annual fundraising event in the world. On Friday, May 15, 2015, more than 70 PCI team members united for this cause. Like the samurai warrior, from our value of Change, our motto is “Act Fearlessly.” TEAM SAMURAI all walked and worked with family and friends to raise funds before, during and after this lifesaving mission.
While community service is a big part of who we are at “notthebigcompany,” our primary purpose is to bring more attention to cancer as this insidious disease has impacted several PCI associates and their families in the last few years. We joined together that day to celebrate our survivors, remember those we have lost, and to fight the good fight against cancer.
Publishing Concepts surpassed its fundraising goal of $5,000 to assist the American Cancer Society in investing in crucial research to prevent, treat, and ultimately, cure all cancers. And we are not finished yet. Our fundraising efforts continue through the end of August, 2015. We encourage everyone to give their time and/or money to support the ACS, and PCI’s fundraising, commitment to eradicating cancer. Thank you!
