Enrich lives and strengthen our community through the power of media  

TPT, Twin Cities’ public television’s mission is to “enrich lives and strengthen our community through the power of media.”  Bird and Cronin supports the TPT values of creativity, accountability and a unified workplace. 

Injury Free 

Bird & Cronin is committed to providing a safe work environment for all employees.  We encourage employees to take breaks during the day and we work with injured employees to modify their work.  We also celebrate periods of being injury-free. Successful months with no injuries are rewarded company-wide for our employees’ commitment to a safe work environment.  

Blood Drive 

Bird & Cronin is hosting its annual American Red Cross Blood Drive in July.  Summertime is a critical period for donations as they go down at this time of year due to a multitude of reasons, including family vacations.  We have a tradition of high participation when we host our Blood Drives.  This year, our Blood Drive will be on Thursday, July 9th, 9 am-3 pm.

Automated External Defibrillators 

In efforts to make Bird & Cronin a safer workspace, we have purchased two Automated External Defibrillators.  There is one located on each of the two floors of our building.  The Emergency Response Team and Safety Committee have all been trained on how to use them in case of an emergency.   

Health and Wellness

Bird & Cronin is interested in the health of all of its employees!  Our annual Spring Wellness Challenge is coming up in April and will challenge everyone to find ways to be active.  Coming up in May, we will offer a tobacco cessation course.  This interactive class series is free of charge and open to all employees who are interested in quitting all forms of tobacco.

Employee Gardens

Spring is finally here and everything outside is coming to life again, including our company gardens!  For the third year in a row, interested employees have shared a space to grow produce, spices and flowers.  A couple of bonuses are that employees who tend to the garden are able to keep what they produce and the gardens keep our campus looking beautiful!




Holidays:In order for our employee’s to enjoy time with family and friends, the following 2014-2015 Holiday hours will be incorporated. For you, our customer, we appreciate your flexibility and adjustments to your inventory management to allow for this.
