Your Personal Guide to Acadiana

Increasingly, quality of life, including everything from education and healthcare options to community events, has become the deciding factor for many job seekers. Providing candidates an accurate snapshot of our excellent quality of life is a challenge facing employers. This is where our team can step in and help.

The community tour can sometimes make or break the deal for a physician and their family to relocate. As Lafayette General continues to expand into Acadiana, it’s great to know that One Acadiana can “sell” the entire Acadiana region.

Welcome Home Acadiana


Stuller recently relocated 8 families from our technology office in Iowa to Lafayette.  With the help of the Talent Development team at One Acadiana, we provided personalized tours showcasing Lafayette to our recruits and their families allowing them to learn more about the area.  We were able to meet with members of the school board, explore housing options, share our rich history and enjoy some local flavors to “sell” all that this region has to offer.  This service is invaluable as Stuller recruits nationally to fill positions in Lafayette.

Upon graduation from the University of Louisiana in 2007, I moved out of state in search of work.  I learned very quickly that Lafayette, LA, was where I wanted to live and raise a family.  While I did move back to Lafayette within a couple years, I still spent the majority of my time traveling out of state for work.  My wife and I were seriously contemplating a move until I attended the “Welcome Home” event and found my place at CGI.  I couldn’t be happier with the opportunity this event created for me and my family.
