A Bit of Logic October 2017

A Note from Leadership

As we look to the horizon in front of Interior Logic, it is important for everyone to know where we are going and how we intend to get there. Most market indicators point to a healthy business environment for the coming years, therefore we will push ahead full steam with our growth plans. We see the existing business growing as well as introduction of new products and steady expansion into new geographies. With this increased size and scale, we will need to remember the importance of consistency across our many business units. Without a uniform approach by all our team members it becomes very difficult to stay on track and continue our expansion. Thank you for your help everyday creating new innovative business approaches while also realizing why we need to follow common practices

Interior Logic Group Sister Company Feature of the month:

Creative Design Interiors

As a part of the Interior Logic Group Family of companies, Creative Design Interiors (CDI) was established in October of 1991 as a single location in West Sacramento. Through the innovative products and services we offer, the integrity of our people and a competitive urgency in all we do; CDI has grown to multiple locations in Northern California and Nevada. In 2005, CDI opened up our own granite slab fabrication shop in Sacramento. Then in 2006, we branched out from our Residential roots and started aggressively pursuing the Commercial market. Again in 2007, we launched our Concrete Surface Preparation division. CDI’s true internal strength comes from our Management Team and the Ownership we take in our business. At CDI, we value and understand the importance of the relationships we have with our Customers. Listening to our needs over the years has created many “firsts” in the industry. Our experienced professionals are dedicated to providing quality interior finish products to builders and our customers. We have more than 2,000 years of experience collectively, and we have supported thousands of projects across America. We are very proud of what we have accomplished over the last 19-years. It couldn’t have been done without our Customers, our Suppliers, or our People.

Friendly Reminder from Compass Healthcare



• Many of our members think that if they are not experiencing any symptoms then they have no reason to visit the doctor; however, completing an annual physical with a Primary Care Physician can help identify small problems before they become more complex, or costly, down the line. Even if you feel fine, make having an annual physical a part of your routine.

• Under health plans, preventive screenings and medications are covered at 100% by most insurance. However, before any services are rendered, members can contact their Health Pro to confirm their benefits and understand what their options are.

• By establishing care with a Primary Care Physician, you can save money by not going to specialists for common concerns.We hope you enjoyed this month's updates, and we appreciate your feedback.


Health & Wellness

Eat Better, Eat Together Month

October is Eat Better, Eat Together Month, and family meals are a tradition that can make a big difference in your family’s health. Meals provide the ideal opportunity for socializing and exchanging ideas. And, we tend to copy the meal habits of those we eat with. So, if your dinner partner is the TV, enough said. One of the easiest ways to make sure kids learn to eat a healthy diet is to eat one yourself—in front of them, at the table, on a regular basis. Lack of time and too many activities can make it hard for families to eat together on a regular basis. Here are a few ways that may help you find time to sit down together at least a few times a week [PICK ONE OR TWO]:

  • Make a breakfast date with your kids on the weekends. Get everyone involved in the meal preparations: mixing batter, cutting up fruit, setting the table and cleaning up are all possibilities.
  • Have a “No Excuses” night when everyone has dinner together, no matter what. Take turns planning and cooking the meal.
  • Eat before evening events or right afterwards. Using a slow cooker, or cooking ahead on the weekends may help on super busy nights.
  • Have easy meal ingredients on hand so meals at home can happen easily even when there’s no time: hearty canned soups, eggs (can be scrambled or made into omelets), sliced cheese (grilled cheese sandwiches) or pasta and jarred spaghetti sauce will all work for simple dinners. Serve some baby carrots and cut up fruit on the side, and you are way ahead of the drive thru nutritionally.


Important actions you can take

  • Follow public health advice regarding school closures and avoiding crowds.
  • Be prepared in case you get sick and need to stay home for a week or so. Purchase a supply of over-the-counter medicines, alcohol-based hand rubs, tissues and other related items in advance, so you won't need to make trips out in the public while you're sick and contagious.
  • Stay informed about the latest flu and vaccine news. Go to the CDC website, cdc.gov, or to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services website, flu.gov, for the most current facts and recommendations. You can also call 1-800-CDC-INFO for more information.


Important Days & Events for the Month of October
