Success Stories

Everyone at Carnival leads by example. This means they never ask anyone to do something they haven’t demonstrated that they’re willing to do themselves. A great example is, leaders taking part in critical projects alongside other employees to put forward the highest quality of work, while allowing the other team members to learn and improve. Speaking up is a big part of our culture and we feel comfortable doing that because our leadership has our backs and will empower us to help us get better.
