CD & Power has been selected as one of the top places to work in the San Francisco Bay Area. “We’re thrilled to be named to the list once again, alongside other great companies. We know our job is never done when it comes to investing in our people,” said Jill Collaro, President. “We’re honored to have won this workplace recognition for the 7th year in a row. It motivates us to keep innovating in the ways that we operate.”
Creating a Top Workplace is about more than offering great benefits and vacation time. It’s about organizational health. Employees want to align with the company’s vision, be challenged by a high-performance culture, and feel that they are valued and that their voices are heard. There’s more to employee engagement than free lunches, happy hours, and take-your-dog-to-work day. The fact is, engagement can be challenging, and it requires leaders to commit to making it a priority.
Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, CD & Power has implemented all CDC-recommended procedures to keep their people and customers safe. “Because we are often called upon in emergencies, like fires and other situations that cause power outages, we’ve recognized the importance of being responsive and empathetic,” explained Lisa Carter, General Manager. “Since the onset of COVID, it has never been more important to prioritize our employees’ needs, which we think gives them the space and energy to be there for our customers.”
Over the years, CD & Power has extended its generosity to include fundraising and donations to support the greater community, especially veterans and children worldwide.
Being named a Top Workplace confirms for management that the investment in our employees is noticed and appreciated, and it encourages us to invest even more.
