What makes CSG different from other places you’ve worked?
At CSG, it’s the sense of community that sets us apart. Despite the continued organizational growth, CSG is always part of something bigger. Whether it is raising money for local institutions, donating blood to the Red Cross, or building homes in Nicaragua, the CSG community is there to help. Seeing how much CSG has helped so many families inspired me to get involved myself! Through CSG, I had the opportunity to go to Nicaragua and help build a home for a family. Having the opportunity to help change lives was an unforgettable experience.
What is the work culture like at CSG?
CSG has a family-like atmosphere; we are a team driven by the same goals – to constantly improve and help each other. CSG encourages employees to interact with one another by organizing different events, including ones our families are invited to. These events make work fun!
What advice would you give professionals looking to stay in Windsor-Essex?
I am originally from Colombia, and I lived in Montreal, Quebec before coming to Windsor. I like this area. It is a good place to raise a family. As someone who moved here not knowing anyone, it was easy to adapt and build a life here. If you are looking for an opportunity - CSG is the place to be! CSG is continuing to grow and needs people that want to be a part of our community and help us all succeed.
