With the diverse nature of employees within a municipal environment, ESI demonstrates a deep understanding of the work that we perform as well as a genuine care for our employees’ needs both personally and professionally. The suite of services that ESI provides is second to none, and available to employees in the format that they are most comfortable with – online, over the phone, or face to face. I regularly advise our employees that whenever they come across an issue – large or small – that they need to address and don’t know where to start, they can’t go wrong with their first step being a phone call or online visit to ESI.”
