When it comes to people at CEC, the idea of being able to walk up to anyone in the office and ask for their help is always possible. Everyone has their own pearls of wisdom from projects across multiple industries and the chances are if you run into a bit of a challenge, multiple helpful people are at your beck and call.
We have the ability to rub shoulders with talented people at all levels – daily. This results in a ‘sponge culture’ that allows us to take years of expertise and insight under our belt and apply it straight away.
Some people say “don’t mix work and play” but since working at CEC, as well as my personal experience, it’s fair to say that everyone has formed lifelong friendships with CEC-ers that will last a lifetime. To experience this at a place of work is something special.
While some projects may be more exciting than others, it’s fair to say that no matter what kind of projects we work on, we’re able to ‘make boring, exciting’. The passion that falls out of our projects is immense and everyone can honestly be proud of what they produce. We rarely work with the same people and each new project team brings new opportunities to grow.
At any level of seniority, if there’s an opportunity to own a piece of work or to get involved with someone else’s, I feel we’re in the position to ask for it. Whether it’s events, marketing, BD, sales or helping other people on client projects, all we have to do is ask and we can jump straight into it, as well as asking for guidance from more experienced peers along the way.
One of many reasons I look forward to coming to work each day is the light-filled, award winning space we have to work in. Not only is it easy on the eye, it sets us up for success when it comes to everyday BAU. I have never worked more efficiently than in our CEC space with the abundant whiteboard and stationary supply it takes putting thoughts ‘on paper’ to a new level.
