ESi Employees – Making a Difference

In the Community

Community Outreach


Making-A-Difference Program

ESi encourages employee participation in humanitarian projects in the local community. The Making-A-Difference Program invites employees to submit proposals that serve to make the world just a little better place through their active involvement in a humanitarian cause. Each quarter, ESi selects a project and provides up to $1,000 in funding to support the employee’s activity. Some recent projects are featured below.

Salvation Army Angel Tree Program

Since its inception in 1979, The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program has helped to brighten the lives and holidays of thousands of needy children throughout Maryland. The program matches donors with children from qualified families that are unable to provide gifts and clothing to their children.

The Angel Tree program has become an annual tradition at ESi. ESi employee, Sharon Moore, coordinated this year’s Angel Tree Program. During the month of December, ESi employees generously donated items and money that provided for 30 children throughout Northern Anne Arundel County.

Charitable Endeavors


Annual Holiday Giving Campaign

Since 2003, ESi and its employees have generously donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to deserving charitable causes.

Each year, based upon employee recommendations, ESi management designates one or more charitable organizations to be the benefactors of our annual holiday drive. The monetary contribution made by each employee is matched dollar-for-dollar by the company.

We are continually inspired and humbled by the kindness and compassion demonstrated by our employees throughout the years. The following organizations have been recipients of our donations:

  • The Alzheimer’s Association (of Maryland)

In the Workplace

The Work Ethic Award


Each quarter, ESi selects an employee to receive its Work Ethic Award. The selection is based upon nominations received from customers, managers and peers. The award recognizes a specific achievement or a sustained superior performance over a period of time that exemplifies the ESi Work Ethic principles. At ESi’s quarterly All-Hands Meeting the recipient is presented with a plaque and a cash award. In addition, the employee’s name is added to a perpetual plaque in our corporate office.

The ESi Work Ethic Principles:

  1. Be Responsive To Our Customer – Never forget that our number one goal, indeed the very reason for our job existence, is to serve our customers. We are always striving for a way to help our customers do better. Their job is our job. We want ESi to be known as the exemplary small business partner to government and industry!
  2. Work Together – ESi employees will be known for their cooperative team spirit. Help your coworkers when your skills are needed. Problem solving is a cooperative exercise, not a competition. We won’t tolerate people who can’t get along. We are all team players. There is no one among us who can do this whole job, but working together there isn’t anything we can’t accomplish.
  3. Be ProductiveWe need a robust forty hours of quality work each week from everyone. Our customers are paying us well for our services. We have a moral obligation to insure that they receive proper return on their investment. Work is measured by accomplishment – not by the dissipation of energy.
  4. Enjoy Your Work – ESi employees will be known for their positive upbeat attitude. If work ceases to be enjoyable – you’re in the wrong job. Although other considerations may sometimes misdirect the proper technical course, don’t get discouraged or frustrated. Always keep a positive outlook. If today was bad, tomorrow will surely be better.
