Building trust is the foundation of our culture at ESP IT. The one thing that will undermine trust more than anything else is gossip. When we all refrain from gossip and are direct in our communication, we’re able to build trust with our coworkers and clients.

Wag Your Tail


We spend more waking hours at work than at home so enjoying what you do is important. Look for ways to keep your “tail wagging” most days when you head out for work—be passionate about what you do, get to know your coworkers, be willing to laugh at yourself, and remember, smiles are contagious.
