Congratulations to team member Anthony Melf, Career Advisor/Instructor who works out of our Wilkes-Barre office! He was recognized with a Young Professionals Award from the Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Commerce after being nominated by coworkers, clients and community members through the Times Leader publication.

Chamber COO Lindsay Griffin said the Young Professionals were made to help enhance and grow the city while cementing a strong foundation for its future.

“Our Young Professionals (network) really wanted a way to honor the younger leaders in our area, because they didn’t really see the awards in the area for that age demographic,” Flanagan said of its inception. “They really wanted a way to spotlight those individuals.”

Way to go, Anthony - we are so proud of you. Thank you for showing up, smiling and supporting every day at EDSI and beyond!

Happy Anniversary to US … EDSI was founded on this day, 40 years ago! Congratulations to our humble servant leader, Kevin Schnieders, in leading 750+ loyal team members who help great companies train and retain great workers, a philosophy originally envisioned by his predecessor (and father), W. Robert Schnieders in 1979. Forty years is quite an accomplishment, as 85% of publicly traded companies don’t make it this far.

We were thrilled by the enthusiasm of our staff members near and far on this special day. With offices spread out among eight states, it was awesome to receive pictures from many locations, showing employees celebrating and wearing their custom 40th Anniversary t-shirts that were sent to all 750+ employees.

Thank you to our entire EDSI family for celebrating this milestone achievement and continuing to Show Up, Smile and Support. Here’s to another 40 years!
