Inc. Magazine Says C1S is Among Best Places to Work; We Agree

It’s not every day that your company is named one of the “50 Best Places to Work” in the U.S. by Inc. magazine. But when your company places as high a value on its employees as it does its customers, you create a work environment that encourages teamwork, fun and camaraderie, while delivering exceptional service for clients. Together, this creates an excellent blueprint for building a successful company, and is also the foundation of C1S Group’s core values.

According to Inc., finding and keeping talented employees is a major challenge for businesses. The companies on the “Best Places to Work” list deploy state-of-the-art techniques to keep their staff happy and productive. Inc. noted that C1S Group keeps employees healthy and engaged by encouraging physical activity and team collaboration with such initiatives as standing cubicles, workout stations in the office and regular offsite exercise sessions (and even a company running team named “The Susta1ners”).

At C1S, we believe in working hard and playing hard; that it’s important to do your best on the job but to also have fun, enjoy life and enjoy those you work with every day. Striving for balance is important, so our company culture encourages perks like office celebrations, Friday morning breakfast tacos, and special summer hours for employees. We also love employee participation, such as with our Halloween costume contest, yearly chili cook off, our Thanksgiving pot luck meal, and our annual Crawfish Boil. Plus, there are plenty of opportunities to give back to the community all year.

Both our corporate culture and our work have won other accolades for C1S Group:

  • Twice named to Outside Magazine’s list of the 100 “Best Places to Work” in the U.S. and “Best Culture” designation

  • “Dallas 100” list recognizing fast growing, entrepreneurial companies in 2014

  • Inc. magazine’s “Inc. 5000” ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America two years in row

Because our clients want to apply the latest sustainability strategies and technologies, we hire talented experts with skills in engineering, energy management and sustainable construction. To nurture that expertise, C1S has a flexible office environment that enables employees to stay active and innovating. Specially designed “collaboration stations” on elevated surfaces encourage staff to gather for quick face-to-face meetings, and with a city park with a walking trail adjacent to our offices, lunchtime strolls or outdoor staff meetings are common events.

C1S Work Play

C1S not only focuses on providing our clients with environmentally-friendly and sustainable solutions, we consider our own work environment as well. We are proud to have a culture that nurtures our employees, promotes job satisfaction and growth, and encourages hard work as well as fun.
