In response to COVID-19, Cobec is proud to support the World Central Kitchen (WCK) through their #ChefsForAmerica Relief Effort. WCK was founded by Chef Jose Andres (of Jaleo, Oyamel, Zaytinya & other restaurants) and its mission is to empower communities and strengthen economies. #ChefsForAmerica is making a key connection between people and communities who need meals, and restaurant workers and drivers who need to earn a living. WCK is currently active in dozens of cities providing over 250,000 fresh meals every day. In addition, WCK has partnered with @hortonskids, another organization Cobec supports, to safely distribute boxed lunches to their children and families in Washington DC. Learn more about WCK and how you can volunteer or donate here: www.wck.org #chefsforamerica #onecobec #payitforward #onelove #helplocal #shoplocal #smallbusiness

Cobec Consulting has taken the following measures to ensure the safety of our employees and their families: Our DC HQ office has been closed as of 3.16.2020. We have moved to 100% telework, in addition to the flexibility we currently offer. Therefore, all in-person meetings have been converted to virtual meetings (this includes onboarding new hires). We have a Zoom video call open everyday for at 9am and 12pm (EST) to encourage morning 'hello's' over coffee, group lunches, or if you just need a break and want to see a familiar face. Cobec's Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) committee set up a Buddy Program to help facilitate engagement with new & current employees. There have been weekly virtual Zoom classes led by colleagues to include: yoga, baking, trivia, science experiments, kickboxing, cross-fit, backyard bee tours, etc. Come grow with us!

We're sure you're getting tired of seeing zoom photos all over social media. Well we aren't! Culture is one of Cobec's core values, so we had to get creative in order to keep everyone engaged. Zoom Video Communications have been an integral part of not only keeping our client meetings running, but also keeping our employees sane💻. We've had weekly activities such as: yoga classes, a bake-a-long, a baby photo contest, science experiments for the kids, kickboxing, cross-fit, coffee education, daily virtual lunches & coffees, happy hours, the list goes on! We couldn't do it without everyone volunteering to lead these events, so thank you so much! A special shout out goes to Jenny Lampe for helping us zen out so much with her wonderful yoga classes 🧘🏻♀️🧁☕️🐝🦠🥊🏋🏾📷. How are you making sure your employees are engaged? We are always looking for fun ways to stay connected. Drop it in the comments below if you have a great idea! #onecobec #employeeengagement #culture #zoom
We are pleased to welcome Nick Celio to Cobec! Nick Celio was born and raised in Youngstown, Ohio. He spent his youth traveling to airshows with his grandfather and developed a passion for aviation. Like his father and grandfather before him, his first job out of high school was in the mill. He worked the plant floor of Alcoa Titanium, providing titanium to the aerospace industry. Nick went on to receive his B.A in Economics from Youngstown State University where he focused on data analytics and foreign policy. In his early career, Nick worked for a number of non-profits specializing in Urban Planning in the post-industrial cities, Youngstown and Bridgeport, CT. At the city of Bridgeport, he managed the Anti-Blight department targeting absentee land owners and banks using data analysis and employed a workflow process to increase impact and efficiencies. In his spare time, Nick plays numerous instruments and travels extensively (abroad when time allows). He owns a vintage ’87 Toyota Dolphin RV that he takes on hiking trips whenever there is a weekend to spare and it starts.
A day of remembrance for those who lost their lives and for those who gave their lives. We remember and will never forget.
Happy Labor Day! Today, we celebrate the hardworking men and women of our country! This past weekend, Cobec employees floated down the Shenandoah River and enjoyed a nice picnic at Harper’s Ferry. We appreciate our employees for their tireless contributions to the prosperity of our nation and we hope everyone enjoys their much-deserved time off this labor day.
