On May 3, 2024, CSG proudly accepted the Excellence in Leadership Development award at Cal State Fullerton's 13th annual Leadership Awards ceremony. Receiving this award is a testament to the collective efforts of every individual within our organization. It is a reflection of our shared commitment to our team members, excellence, and continuous improvement.

The Excellence in Leadership Development Award honors exceptional organizations in Orange County or Southern California, which have demonstrated excellence in developing human capital through innovative organizational policies and leadership development programs.

CSG's Executive Vice President, JD Shafer, was honored to accept this award on behalf of the company. "As a commercial cleaning company it is an honor to accept an award as prestigious as this leadership award, it is not often we get to share our secrets", said JD.

The secrets he speaks of have little to do with the finest cleaning tools or mastering techniques for impeccable floors. Instead, the "secrets" of CSG's success stem from our company culture. We prioritize our team members and their development.

At CSG, our people are our biggest asset and we take pride in empowering our team members. We strive to cultivate a positive work environment where team members are encouraged to grow personally and professionally.

As spoken by CSG President, Casey Pearce, "CSG is in the people business, and our cleaning services are a by-product of this."

Our commitment to progressing talent is evident in our continuous investment in human capital development at all levels of our organization. Over the past two years, CSG has adopted several organizational practices inspired by the interactive workshops of CSUF’s Dr. Jay Barbuto.

Dr. Barbuto’s Servant Leadership and Emotional Intelligence teachings have cemented themselves in CSG’s leadership principles. By embracing a selfless, service-oriented approach to leadership, CSG has grown as an organization. It's our dedication to investing in our people and fostering leadership skills that have propelled us to become the best-in-class facilities services provider we are today.

As we look to the future of CSG, we remain steadfast in our commitment to the heart of our business, our team members. This award will serve as a significant milestone and catalyst for growth CSG extends the most sincere thank you to CSUF's Giles-O'Malley Center for Leadership for this tremendous honor.
