Positive employee feedback drove recognition by the state’s leading business journal

Edison, New Jersey, July 13, 2021 CS Energy, 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 in 2021. This is the second consecutive year that CS Energy has received this recognition in the Medium Companies category (50 – 249 employees) by NJBIZ, New Jersey’s leading business journal.

The program conducted confidential employee surveys in order to determine the award winners. CS Energy’s staff rated and described a range of factors that led to the company’s placement on the list, including allowing flexible work schedules, offering parental leave for both women and men and providing paid time off for volunteer work. Respondents also highlighted the company’s numerous team-building events that CS Energy regularly sponsors, such as baseball games and golf tournaments. Additionally, staff mentioned enjoying CS Energy’s Women in Renewable Energy (CS Energy WiRE) group that was launched in the spring of 2020, which provides female staff members with mentoring and support in an empowering work environment. CS Energy’s core focus on safety also contributed to employee satisfaction, as the company provides safety incentives and includes a full day of safety training during the weeklong employee onboarding process.

“We’re very pleased to have received this award for a second year in a row,” shared Diana Palazzi Mery, Executive Vice President of Accounting & Finance and one of CS Energy WiRE’s founding members. “This award came as a direct result of our employee’s positive feedback, and knowing that our employees feel that CS Energy is a great place to work makes all of the effort we placed into our initiatives and programs worthwhile.” 

Recognition as one of New Jersey’s Best Places to Work comes at a time of strategic growth for CS Energy. Despite the global pandemic, the company expanded its team by 22 percent and completed its best year on record in 2020, and plans to continue its growth in 2021 and the years to come.
