Our culture is an absolute top priority here at ISE. We want our people happy and engaged! So, we have created a wide variety of employee-led committees that truly shape who we are as a company. Each year employees are given the opportunity to participate in a committee of their choice. Because the committees are so diverse, we have a little something for everyone!
Here’s a little taste of what these groups are all about:
Culture Committee – The Culture committee oversees the annual Employee Experience Survey, reviews the results and identifies what we are doing well and areas of opportunity. The committee also makes suggestions based on the feedback, for ideas to implement. The Team Appreciation Program and Flexible Fridays are just two of the ideas that came out of this committee.
Fun Committee – The Fun Committee generates ideas, plans, and executes monthly activities that expand creativity and foster excitement and fun. Think a pie making contest in honor of Pi Day, bags tournaments, chili cook offs, pontoon outings, etc.
Lunch & Learn Committee – The Lunch and Learn Committee plans monthly Lunch and Learns, including identifying topics and presenters and communicating upcoming sessions to everyone.
Philanthropy Committee – The Philanthropy Committee identifies charitable initiatives throughout the year and plans and organizes the events. The committee also drives community outreach activities to give back to the community.
Internship Committee – The Internship Committee plans summer internship programs for college students including onboarding, offboarding, and project assignment. The dedication and creativity of this committee even earned ISE “Best Internship Program” by the Corridor Business Journal!
“Having an engaged workforce is critical to the success of any organization. The committees provide an opportunity for our employees to not only influence our company culture but actually define it – today and looking into the future!” - Kirsten Wennerstrom, Director of Human Resources
It’s no surprise that ISE has won numerous awards for having a top workplace environment, when the employees are leading the change.
