Employees of the Month
"I am very grateful to be working for an amazing company. This is my second family. I’ve been here 5 years now and there is no other place I’d rather be. I am thankful for all my learning experiences and I plan to keep learning more! CES has really helped me grow as a person."
- Joel B.
“I worked with CES as an I.T. and Networking Consultant many years before becoming an Employee.
They had lost almost everything in a fire and were moving into a building I knew well, on to a network I had designed, so I was more than happy to help.
Long story short, by the time I was done, I had replaced most of their computer technology, most of their I.T. Staff, and totally moved their dialers and pbx’s to run on much more modern technology, saving them a significant amount of money every month. Lastly, I designed the network for the current building, and once I finished that I went back to my normal life and left CES in memories.
Fast forward about 9 years:
I had left my previous job, and CES was having a lot of technical issues, so Pat and Bev had me hunted down. I decided I would help for a few months as a contractor and then do something else, but I soon realized that it would take a long time to get everything running smooth again, and the longer I worked here the more I realized how different this group was from every other place I had worked. Very quickly I found myself Happy to go to work, Glad to see my work Family every day. I have worked at some amazing places in my life, but the people you work with are what makes or breaks it for me, and my fellow staff really care for each other and go out of their way to help, just like family!”

“Thank you for the opportunity to work for CES. It has been a smooth start to this company. Everyone is really helpful and the atmosphere is amazing!”

"Wow, I am honored to be selected as employee of the month. I have been with CES for about 3 years and when I first started, I had no clue about the energy industry (and had a lot to learn). I would like to thank my boss, Di and our team April, Steve & Tyler for all of their hard work, because I couldn't do my job successfully without them. I would like to thank the Managers and Reps for their hard work too, because without them, I wouldn't have a job. I would like to give a big Thank You to Pat Clouden, because none of this is possible without you. I look forward to many more years."
