OUR CORE VALUES
What matters most
At IES Residential, we live our mission and values every day. In fact, we thrive on them. Here, we're all about our people and making IESR a great place to work.
Take a seat, grab a snack and read on...
Our number one goal is Safety. Safety for our employees, our customers and at our jobsites. And, we're proud of it. We have an incredible safety record and it's important to us. In fact, it's our #1 core value.
At IESR, we truly are like family. Our people are one of our core Power Factors. And, we won't budge on that. We watch over one another and work hard to keep a healthy, vibrant and positive culture throughout our organization. Just ask any one of our employees.
Customers are at the forefront of our daily operations. Our relationships and partnerships drive everything that we do. Without our customers, we wouldn't be where we are today.
A strange word as a core value, isn't it? When you think about it, it's not really. We're humbled by our people and our customers. We acknowledge that they are important to us day in and day out. We wouldn't be where we are today without them.
Since our employees are one of our most important Power Factors at IESR, it's natural for us to want to provide exceptional opportunities for them. We take training seriously. We've dedicated a lot of resources, including our Head of Education & Training, to cultivate an in-house, fully comprehensive training and development program for our employees.
Employee Engagement & Communication
By now you know our theme - our people. We're focused on doing everything we can by our people. At IESR, you may find us having a company picnic with family at one of our locations, or see us bragging on social media about employee promotions, and even see pics of one of us dressed as our company mascot (Wirenut, the Honey Badger - you may see him around).
When we say opportunity, we mean opportunity. Here at IESR, it's not uncommon to hear stories about our employees and how they've developed their career through incredible opportunities. Here's a prime example - our very own President started as an electrical trainee 20+ years ago.
That's right. No need to do a double-take, you read it right. It's not misspelled. A common misconception is that it's supposed to say "wired" - after all, we are electrical contractors. We love that our #8 core value is "weird", and we totally embrace it. It sums up our company completely, because we have such a diverse culture at IES Residential. And, together we make a huge family; one huge, weird family and we wouldn't have it any other way.
Our steadfast dedication to people is equally matched with our dedication to safety.
We believe nothing is more important than the safety of our employees and our worksites. That's why we implement rigorous and extensive safety training for all of our employees, while continually assessing our safety performance against our peers and industry best practices and promoting ongoing improvement.
We are committed to promoting safe environments for our employees, jobsites and our communities.
Our ranking as one of the nation's largest specialty contractors is due to the unwavering commitment to safety built directly into our organizational structure. Our safety goals are simple: no injuries and no time lost due to accidents. From the careful screening and on-boarding of employees, to institutionalized and continuous training, to rigorous ongoing safety programs and safety updates on every project, safety is always the top priority at IES Residential.

WE'RE WILD ABOUT WIRENUT
Wirenut is our mascot - a honey badger. He represents strength, grit, determination, tenacity, security and cleverness. All the characteristics that also represent IESR. You might see Wirenut around sometime. He likes to show up when least expected.

Honey Badgers have earned a place in the Guinness Book of World Records, just like IES Residential!
