Putting employees first earns CD & Power a spot on Bay Area News Group small business Top Workplaces list for 3rd year in a row.
Martinez, CA – June 27, 2017 – Headquartered in the competitive labor market of the San Francisco Bay Area, CD & Power seems to have cracked the code for attracting and retaining great employees. As the banner on the building currently exclaims, the company is truly the home of “Northern California’s Dream Team.” President Jill Collaro points out “Our devoted staff is the reason we are successful and have become the Largest Independent Generator Service Company in Northern California.”
Assembling and retaining their highly-talented service team has required tangible steps, like consistently spending on training and sharing company profits. “The owners invest right back into the company and the people at every opportunity. When profits are good, it comes right back to us in the form of a bonus or an extra contribution to the 401(k) program,” explains Heather Caraway, an 11-year veteran of the company.
But the success is also the result of a less tangible process of nurturing a company culture that inspires team members to contribute their best. Omar Gomez, who joined the company less than a year ago, describes it this way. “Everyone believes in and trusts one another. We help and teach each other and that is what makes it feel more like a family than a company.”
The fact that even a recent hire like Omar sees his work colleagues as family is a tribute to long-time employees like Ken Brashaw and their efforts to create a supportive environment. “I started here 20 years ago and grew up with some of the core people that are still here. Over time I worked briefly at a few other places, but the environment at CD & Power is special. Here we help one another first and recognize that we’ll get help when we need it.”
The company is excited to be honored by the Bay Area News Group. The Top Workplace program managed by Workplace Dynamics, LLC is meant to identify those companies and organizations which excel at workplace engagement and organizational health.
