The comprehensiveness of CESO's approach, the attention to detail displayed by their team, and the personalized level of service they provide has been instrumental. We could've never achieved this level of progress without them.
As a superintendent in need of timely and difficult communications, I turned to CESO for help. They not only helped with the communications, they helped me feel grounded, cared for, and not alone. Their ability to craft effective communications is only part of their work; they are also good at building relationships and a family-like environment with their clients.
As a department leader of a fast-growth and changing district, I appreciate their support and consider them a valued extension of our in-house communications team.
As a one-person communications department, it is often challenging to get relevant input and feedback on initiatives for our district. The CESO team has provided outstanding guidance, insight and support to ensure I am pursuing the right projects at the right times and in the best ways to engage our communities and benefit our students, families and staff members.
CESO changed my life with the Communications Assessment they did for us. As a direct result of this audit, I became more effective and more efficient. For example, I spend at least three hour less each week on our newsletter, but the number of people reading it increased by more than 300%.
Being relatively new to Human Resources, it has been infinitely valuable to partner with the entire team at CESO on everything from standard workflow process to negotiations strategy. Their passion for developing world-class organizations comes through in everything they touch.
Our partnership with CESO has provided me with the reassurance that there is always someone who can collaborate with us on messaging that will best represent our district because they understand our vision, voice, and community.
CESO has been a resource of not only information, but also of thought partnership. The team has found immeasurable ways to help support hard-to-fill positions as well as ways to optimize systems within my school district. I have appreciated the thoughtfulness and overall approach - it feels like a true partnership.
CESO's holistic approach and emphasis on collaboration make them an invaluable partner in shaping a bright future for our school district.
As an HR director working in a school environment, our employment environment is unique combining equal parts of creativity, compliance and compassion. We must do everything we can to get the best people in front of our kids and our community stakeholders while operating efficiently, effectively and transparently. We also collaborate with multiple internal and external stakeholders which means identifying data that can tell our district's own unique operational story. CESO has enabled us to improve workflows and operate strategically making our district a more effective operational partner.
CESO Communications is an essential part of our success at GFW Public Schools. Together, we have created a strong two-way communication system that serves multiple languages; supports families, develops stronger partnerships with our community, and tells our story. Having their team partner with us in communications has helped to transform our district's day-to-day operations, election communications, and getting the word out about positive things happening in our schools!"
In my superintendent role, I knew that communications with families and staff was a huge priority. I wanted to be as transparent as possible with our stakeholders, and knew I could not do that all on my own. I contacted CESO for support and we have had a strong partnership ever since. The CESO team helps our district with all things communication support and I am so grateful for their work and the impact they have had in my district.
CESO is based in Minneapolis, Minnesota but our support stretches across the country and into Canada. Working throughout the U.S. and beyond has taught us that no two school communities are exactly alike, ensuring the solutions we develop are tailor-made to help grow and sustain the health of your district, specifically.
