Piedmont Service Group and its employees would like to honor and thank all military personnel who served the United States in all wars, particularly living veterans and our own here in our PSG Family.
If it wasn’t for the veterans then we wouldn’t be enjoying the freedoms that we have in the USA today. Our veterans and our allies have made this a better world.

Happy Election Day!
The right to vote is one of the fundamentals rights Americans should never take for granted. Many people do not understand just how important it is to cast a vote and how their vote can change the world they live in.
Many today complain about politicians not listening to the public. However, if we do not bother to vote our voice can't be heard by our elected officials in the first place. Elected representatives are guided by what we say particularly when we vote. By not voting we are telling our politicians that we don't care what they do.
If you want change, your first duty is to vote.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same.

At Piedmont Service Group the Field Technician teams do a variety of jobs besides the usual install or trouble call. They are also proficient in sales and retention.The daily life of a PSG Technician is as unpredictable as the local weather report. It all begins with the journey to the first job in your day. The day comes to its conclusion following many hours of troubleshooting and repair. However, a typical day is a rarity. One of the few consistencies is their Service vehicle. Each year around this time, the office staff of PSG Raleigh opens up the “Piedmont Car/Truck Wash” to get the Service Fleet spick and span. The office staff rolls up their sleeves in a small gesture of appreciation to the Field Staff.
It’s times like these when the days are long and hot that it’s important to let our team know how much their hard work is valued.
And thanks to everyone who worked the wash:
Randy Batten, Bobby Hughes, Mark Webster, Chester Williamson, Tom Jack, Tom Bergeron, Gwen Smothers, Erica Edwards, Val Fidanzo, Laura Peterson,Margaret Mills, Erika Martinez, Marisa Corson, Heather Denny, Shane Corbett, Jeremy Logue, Matt Hobgood, Chris Turner,Steve Averett, Donnie Stancil, Nick Walters, Tim Croom, Jason Lapinsky and Peter Williams.

In today’s modern business world, "fun" seems to have become a four-letter word. Apparently, someone decided that if employees are being spontaneous, creative, even playful, the real business must not be getting accomplished.
However, there is a growing mountain of evidence characterizing people who have fun at work as:
· more productive
· more creative
· more motivated
· more flexible and resilient
· better able to meet job demands
The sales team at the PSG Raleigh office decided to give this idea a shot. On Wednesday, the race was on! Everyone gathered after work at Rush Hour Karting in Garner to put the pedal to the metal.
New team member, Jeremy Logue took the checkered flag.
After burning rubber the team stayed for dinner and a good time was had by all!

Every two seconds, a patient in the United States is in need of blood.
Piedmont Service Group hosted the American Red Cross BloodMobile at their Raleigh office on Friday. From our field personnel to upper management, they all rolled up their sleeves to make a difference.
Only about 3% of the population currently gives blood. The number one reason these donors say they give is because they “want to help others.” This attitude of selfless giving supplies the 43,000 pints of donated blood used each day in North America.
Piedmont Service Group can be proud of its efforts today.
Thank you to HR Director, Erika Martinez for organizing the BloodDrive and to all who donated!

Last week, in the middle of the crazy heat wave, Piedmont Service Group- Greensboro, woke up with the roosters to hold a Truck Wash for their field personnel. Buckets, brushes, and expert tire cleaners were all on hand in a show of appreciation for how hard our field staff works. While getting their trucks or vans washed, the technicians learned about the latest and greatest in Trend Controls from none other than the (in)famous Kevin Riley. Our technicians work hard and are the backbone of our company, so it is important to show them how much we appreciate everything they do. Thanks!
Way to go GSO!!!!!!
