Our Really Cool Employees
Oh the stories we could tell... IEI is a family that's almost 200 strong. Our business is centered on staffing Rockstar's, or at least really competent amazing people.
We have a very diverse team, after all we're a minority owned, women owned (and led) small business. But the numbers don't lie:
50% of the Executive Leadership Team are women,
32% of our team are women working in male dominated industries
51% of our team are minorities
12% are veterans
In 2020 we set out to make our corporate culture a top priority and it remains a key annual objective to ensure we focus on employee engagement, mental well being, and provide an inclusive safe environment for our employees to thrive. We support this responsibility by:
Providing career opportunities and resources to our workforce, and leading by example in areas such as workplace safety, health and wellness, diversity and inclusion, and training and development;
Hiring veterans as they seek to transition to the civilian workforce;
Encouraging employees with entrepreneurial drive to launch their own businesses by becoming subcontractors or suppliers to us; and
Partnering with veteran-owned, women-owned, and minority-owned businesses.
We have embraced working from home / alternative work arrangement lifestyles as much as our contracts and work will allow. To ensure all staff have a place to come together, interact, and interface with each other despite the fact that we are all spread across the globe on the daily, we created weekly virtual Lunch & Learn meet-ups to connect everyone in the company. We also implemented a Project Manager training program where the CEO, COO, and VPs monthly work with the Project Manager's on expanding their knowledge and skills. IEI advocates on promoting from within whenever possible, all of our Executive Leadership Team started as Field Technicians or Project Managers with the company.
