Energy & Utilities Employee Recognition

Energy and Utility Workers Make All the Difference

If we didn't have workers in the energy and utilities industry, our lives wouldn't resemble anything like they do today. There would be no power, no refrigeration, no clean water. The list goes on. Unfortunately, these unsung heroes go to work day in and day out not knowing if they'll return home safely to their families. With fatality rates that reach as high as seven times the national average, jobs in the Energy & Utilities industry are among the most dangerous on Earth.

Luckily, this doesn't have to be the case. At C.A. Short Company, we’ve spent the last 80 years working with companies to engage and recognize their employees, and we’ve seen amazing results. Safety incident rates plummet, as does defects and turnover, while at the same time profits and productivity skyrocket.

The below information and free resources are designed specifically to help educate companies in the Energy & Utilities sector on the benefits of creating a Culture of Engagement, as well as actionable steps your organization can use to create a better work environment today.
