Success is finding satisfaction in giving  a little more than you take.

Cornerstone is committed to taking green to a new level. Some of our initiatives include:

    optimize electricity savings

  • Recycling of paper, glass, plastic, cardboard, aluminum, computer components, and batteries
    in all offices

Cornerstone began as a woman-owned company in 1990 and remained as such until 2000 when owner Janelle Piatkowski sold a portion to Atlas World Group. Today, Janelle continues as President and CEO and we continue to have processes in place to utilize and track woman-owned companies in our supply chain and we actively seek to partner with all types of minority businesses including Black, Hispanic, Native-American, etc.

At Cornerstone, we believe that having a diverse group of people working together enhances our performance. We don’t just accept difference — we celebrate, support, and thrive on it. The collective skills, knowledge and background of our people are key to our success. Cornerstone is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace and an affirmative action employer.

Service Partner Code of Conduct

Our partner network is an extension of our organization and have been carefully selected by Cornerstone’s leadership for their integrity, dependability, responsiveness, cost-effectiveness, ability to bring solutions to a variety of mobility challenges in the areas they serve, and stewardship to the communities in which they work. As such, we hold them to the same standards we uphold related to labor laws, human rights principles, and protecting the environment. We require our partners to provide equal employment opportunity for all persons and to recruit and administer hiring, working conditions, benefits and privileges of employment, compensation, training, opportunities for advancement including upgrading and promotion, transfer and terminations of employment including layoffs and recalls for all employees, without discrimination because of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, age, veteran status, disability, or other characteristics unrelated to a person’s qualification and/or job performance. In addition, our service partners contractually agree not to pay any bribes to foreign officials as proscribed by the United States Foreign Corrupt Practices Act nor make any other payment for purposes contrary to the intent of such act. This is further reinforced through supplier training sessions and ongoing performance management.
