Some may describe us as being quirky in a fun way because we like to celebrate our differences; both personally and professionally. Our team is comprised of some of the brightest, humble, most caring, compassionate, and determined group you’ll ever meet.
We provide our employees with an environment to embrace new opportunities so they can constantly grow and exceed expectations. This allows employees to gain exposure to different industries, new technologies, and be part of an employee-centric culture where ideas, creativity, and free-flowing communications are encouraged.
We also offer a 100% virtual work environment and a flexible schedule, so if you have a special event or family function you want to attend you can leave early. By ditching the commute to work helps you support your mental and physical health.
Things in our world are always changing, and our employees are challenged every day—either by the use of new technologies or by the creation of perspectives through the lens of a kaleidoscope.
100% of Our Employees Feel Very Satisfied and Are Proud to Work at IFI Professionals
For a third year in a row, we have been awarded as one of the Top 100 Best Employers and a Great Place to Work. We had 100% participation in the survey and 100% of our employees said IFI Professionals is a great place to work, compared to 59% of employees at a typical US-based company. We strive to move upward and are forward-thinking. We navigate through ambiguity and go the extra mile.
We offer a flexible work schedule; we want to make sure our employees have a healthy balance between work and their personal life. We believe we make better decisions when our workforce reflects the diversity of the communities in which we operate. We have gone to great lengths to ensure our employees feel respected, listened to, and have an opportunity to constantly learn new things and grow within an inclusive environment.

March 4, 2022
Although March 4th is formally Employee Appreciation Day, at IFI, we like to think we celebrate and appreciate our employees every day of the year. All of them have helped shape and make our organization fun to work at by being genuine, helping each other out. and by going the extra mile.
At IFI Professionals not only do we exercise our minds, but we exercise our bodies as well. IFI supports its employees’ endeavors in constantly learning to enrich their jobs, maintaining a work/life balance, as well as their endeavors to support their health and wellbeing. This is not just a philosophy at IFI, but an action. We provide an exercise allowance to our employees that can be used for a variety of health and wellness activities. The exercise allowance encourages employees to spend time doing the activities that they enjoy, or perhaps trying something new! Our employees participate in various classes and types of fitness that help keep their minds and bodies healthy. Some of these activities include mixed martial arts, strength training, yoga, running, and group fitness classes. While we enjoy exercising healthy lifestyles here at IFI, we still love our carbs and pasta too!
Over the years, we have been very purposeful in creating an organization with a heart, a sense of community, where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. A place where employees are listened to and where they feel connected, even though we may not be sitting in the same building.
In the spirit of being connected, we tried to present you with gifts that represent different cultures. You’ll experience Europe, Turkey, Africa, Korea, Italy, Mexico and more. In addition, you’ll travel throughout the US and visit locations where your team members live.
Enclosed you will find 12-gifts numbered 1-12. Each of the teams will open their gifts together over Zoom, so please hold off on unwrapping any gifts until further notice. When you do begin opening gifts, please send photos to Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer (AKA Dee).
The IFI team works in a remote environment, however that doesn’t stop us from getting to know each other in new and innovative ways. Every month we do something special by engaging our employees in activities that allow us to build team bonds while having some fun! For the month of February, our Team Building Event was a Jeopardy-style game that contained a variety of knowledge categories. Employees had a chance to guess which co-worker matched 5 descriptors in the “Who am I?” category. We learned one of our employees got pulled over at the age of 12! Additionally, our team flexed their history muscles and answered questions about Black History as well as topics surrounding President’s Day. “According to Jim” provided employees with a glimpse into the life of our founder, Jim French. We learned he’s been fired from 3 jobs, now he can’t fire himself! Employees were encouraged to wear unique hats for the event, and some included: a taco hat, a bike helmet, cowboy hat and baseball hats. Our HR Manager played Alex Trebek and she even wore a mustache and glasses like his. Also, each employee was sent a personalized snack box from Caroo, which also support our values by sharing their profits with Feeding America and utilizing women and minority-owned businesses. We had a great time with the event and enjoyed getting to spend time with our team! This is just one of many examples of why you would want to share the IFI Employee Experience with us.
Each member of our team is more than a number or “just” an employee: we’re uniquely human and treat each other with dignity and respect.
Our company fosters a spirit of camaraderie. We’re talented and creative and that transfers over into our organization’s culture. You’ll often find us baking luscious desserts, drawing, creating jewelry, singing, salsa dancing, playing an instrument, watching our favorite sports team, being foster parents, or challenging our bodies to reach new goals in physical achievements by biking longer distances or hiking more difficult trails.
By working collaboratively, developing solutions, adapting to change, and applying new technologies, we consistently develop key skill sets needed to maintain success in our environment.
As we continue our journey together, we hone our skills and talents with frequent Team Building and Educational Events.
We’ve been seen running around San Clemente with hats, fake mustaches, and a list of clues trying to figure out “Who Done It?” on our Murder Mystery Team Challenge.
We demonstrated our culinary talents and subsequently enjoyed the meal we made together.
Even throughout Covid, we’ve adapted and implemented new and creative ways of coming together and strengthening our bonds.
We celebrate personal milestones such as birthdays, delight in the arrival of a new baby, and are constantly soliciting input and thoughts on how to do things better. We value each other!
We hold ourselves accountable and with that comes “Big Freedom”, but also “Big Accountability” to constantly stretch ourselves and look ahead to see what’s possible on the horizon.
We believe in ourselves, our product, and our organization. We know that if we provide unique and incomparable employee experiences, it will equate to the same type of positive experience for our customers.
That’s what it means to share the IFI experience with us.
And together we’re trailblazers in our business and community
We encourage our employees to take ownership by identifying solutions to problems.
Embrace opportunities to constantly grow and exceed expectations.
Collaboration is essential in almost all aspects of life and work.
It takes all of us working together to create and achieve something exceptional. We partner and build relationships of trust based on integrity and compassion with each other, our partners, our customers and our community.
Driving for excellence means being the best we can be and going above-and-beyond what is expected. Constantly strive to do better and be better.
When someone has a disability, they aren’t always afforded the same opportunities when it comes to employment. As an organization, we felt it was important to bridge some of those gaps so we formed a partnership with Goodwill.
When most people think of Goodwill, they think of their brick and mortar stores or an organization that collects donations. However, Goodwill is much more. They offer job training, internships, and placement for individuals who face barriers in obtaining employment. We’re a proud partner with Goodwill by collaborating in the development and implementation of an internship program, along with ongoing employment opportunities.
We’re proud to volunteer in our community where we actively seek out opportunities to have a positive impact and help those who are less fortunate.
When Covid-19 struck, we had to come up with a more creative way of continuing our community outreach while protecting our employees and others from the virus. As an organization, we identified “3” key organizations who needed assistance.
Each employee selects an organization that resonates with their personal values and IFI makes a monthly cash contribution on the behalf of the employee. This is our way of continuing to give back during a time of crisis. We look forward to the day when we can get back out in the field and volunteer with our local charities hands-on again.

At IFI, we don’t just accept differences — we celebrate them! We know by having a diverse organization it benefits our employees, our customers and our community. IFI is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace. We are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of creed, gender, national origin (includes, but is not limited to the individual’s or ancestor’s’ actual or perceived physical, cultural, or linguistic characteristics associated with a national origin group or marital to membership in or association with persons of a national origin group), religion, marital status, registered domestic partner status, age, national origin or ancestry, physical or mental disability, medical condition including genetic characteristics, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, gender transition, Veteran’s status or any other consideration made unlawful by federal, state, or local laws. It also prohibits unlawful discrimination based on the perception that anyone has any of those characteristics or is associated with a person who has or is perceived as having any of those characteristics. We also consider qualified applicants regardless of criminal histories, consistent with legal requirements. If you have a disability or special need that requires accommodation, please let us know by notifying us.
All of our career opportunities at IFI are remote. Some of the clear advantages of working remotely include cost savings (estimated at $7,000 per year), an enhanced work/life balance, and ditching the morning/afternoon commute! A remote work environment provides our employees with the ability to stay with relatives, support family or friends during an emergency, and simply be able to work from anywhere.
We do remote so well, an employee that worked remotely with another company prior to IFI commented that their experience here has been completely different; they don’t feel like they are adrift at sea. However, while they commented that their employer did well within the remote work sphere, IFI does it much better.
Our employees communicate and collaborate seamlessly, without feeling like they are alone on an island. To achieve this, we utilize several applications that foster communication and teamwork within our organization, and we provide our employees with all the equipment necessary for a safe and productive workspace. These items along with our monthly team building and educational activities provides our employees with an exciting culture and team environment at IFI Professionals!
