Reducing Turnover and Expanding Operations through Creative Compensation and Apprenticeships

Meet CIV Plus and Global Source Distribution

CIV Plus is a family-owned retail company that sells vapes and natural products to fulfill their mission of helping adult smokers rid the use of combustible cigarettes. What started in 2012 as a single storefront selling alternatives to combustible cigarettes quickly grew to 12 stores and the subsequent launch of its distribution center, Global Source Distribution (GSD), which provides products to 1,200 retailers, in addition to CIV. The two businesses, CIV and GSD, employ approximately 70 workers across their retail and distribution operations.
