Southwest Iowa Renewable Energy Encourages Employee Engagement
January 29, 2019
When it comes to safety, SIRE believes employee engagement is the ticket. Each month, employees are encouraged to attend or participate in safety "events" to expand on their culture of "Safety Without Shortcuts". One of their reoccurring engagements includes NSCN's Safe at Work Breakfast Series. SIRE reserves a table for the entire series which allows for different employees to attend each month. This month, Eric Grundke was a hit– SIRE's table was completely full (as well as others!) The 8 that attended were able to bring back great safety information to the remainder of their group. We love seeing our NSCN members take full advantage of their benefits spread!

Crete Carrier Gets in the Holiday Spirit by Supporting Santa Cop Program
December 17, 2018
We're proud to have Crete Carrier as a member of NSCN. Their employees have decided to give back to their community this holiday season by supporting Lincoln's annual Santa Cop program.
Santa Cop is a collective program in which many businesses take part in to help make a difference for struggling families in the Lincoln area. The program began in 1980 when a handful of Lincoln Police Union members sprouted the idea to start a program that would help the children of Lincoln who ‘fell through the cracks’ of existing programs. Santa Cop recognizes that children have no control over these circumstances and know they will often go without during this special time of year. The program is completely run by police officers in the Lincoln Police Department in their off-duty time.
