Ranked 7th in Medium Companies by NJBIZ
CS Energy, LLC, a leading integrated energy firm that designs and builds optimized projects in the solar, storage and emerging energy industries, has been named one of NJBIZ's Best Places to Work in New Jersey for 2020. The newspaper ranked CS Energy seventh in the Medium Companies category (50 - 249 employees).
The nominees were selected based on confidential employee surveys. CS Energy's employees described and rated several factors that ultimately drove the company's placement on the list, including providing paid time off for volunteer work, allowing flexible work schedules, and offering parental leave for both men and women. Respondents also mentioned enjoying various team-building events that the company sponsors on a regular basis. CS Energy's focus on safety is a large part of its success, as the company provides safety incentives for going above and beyond in the workplace and includes a full day of safety training during the weeklong employee onboarding process.
"This award came as a result of our staff's responses," shared Matthew Skidmore, CEO of CS Energy. "Our employees are the ones who feel that CS Energy is a great place to work, and that makes all of the efforts we put into our programs and initiatives worth it. That's also what makes this award so important to us: it's honest, positive feedback from our employees."
Being named one of New Jersey's Best Places to Work comes at a time of strategic growth for CS Energy. The company expanded its team by 20 percent in 2019 and plans to continue its growth in 2020 and beyond. The team has completed several major solar projects this year, including the largest solar plant in New Jersey. CS Energy has been adding employees throughout 2020 and is currently hiring in several fields: https://www.csenergy.com/careers/.
While this is CS Energy's first time being listed by NJBIZ as a top place to work as a standalone company (previously participated as part of The Conti Group), this is not the first time that the firm has received recognition for its employee programs. CS Energy received a Governor's Certificate for its employee safety record in the Governor's Occupational Safety and Health Awards Program earlier this year, and in 2019 the company received a Division of Public Safety Certificate - Citation of Merit from the State of New Jersey, Department of Labor and Workforce Development, for its accomplishments in the prevention of workplace injury and illness. The final rankings from NJBIZ were announced September 17, 2020. For more information, visit https://njbiz.com/2020s-best-places-work-nj-ranked/.
