Our amazing team here at TAG energy has earned the “top national sales honor” on behalf of their solar client. Along with this honor, TAG energy won the “10th best places to work in Los Angles” in 2014, and was nominated again in 2015.
CEO Jaime Hepp says, “Our team has incredible focus and determination, and this award is a humbling reminder of our collective effort on behalf of the client,” said Julie Au Yeung, a top sales rep at TAG Energy. “We appreciate the recognition.”
Our TAG Energy team made their way back home from Cancun this Labor Day weekend, and they decided to share with us some tips they picked up on their trip.
Pack the Night Before
Nothing is worse then forgetting your passport, favorite book or camera at home when you are on an airplane half way to your destination. We recommend you make a list of everything you think you will need and pack the night before so that if the morning of you are running late or making a last minute errand, you’ll have most of your things pre-packed and ready to go!
Wake up Early
It’s 9 am, and your flights in 30 minutes, and thanks to LA traffic, there’s no way you’ll make it to LAX on time. We recommend you wake up an hour or two than you think you need too, that way you don’t miss your flight or feel pressed for time. Plus that’ll give you time to go to Starbucks! It’s a win win.
Call your Bank
Often times credit card companies place a hold on your account if they see suspicious account from outside your general vicinity. Make sure to call them to let them know you will be traveling to another country so that you can still access your money.
Living in the moment is the way to go, but don’t forget to snap a couple of pictures here and there so that you can look back on them and remember how much fun you had. Don’t wait until the last day of your trip to take out your camera and start snapping pictures. The only thing you’ll end up capturing are pictures of tired grumpy friends who are ready to go home. Speaking of which, follow us on instagram to see great pictures our team took in Cancun.
It’s Okay to be Lost
A big part of traveling is exploring! It’s okay to lose the map and just walk around with a friend or two. Take in the culture and talk to locals! It’s one thing to read about your destination online, but it’s another thing to actually hear it from the locals. They might be able to recommend to you some cool restaurants or hidden gems that the country has to offer.
We hope through this article you are able to be better prepared for any upcoming trip you may have. To get some Cancun photo inspiration visit our Pinterest! Also follow us on Twitter to keep up with our amazing team here at TAG Energy.

TAG Energy was recently named as one of the Best Places to Work in Los Angeles for the 4th year in a row. This ninth annual program was created by the Los Angeles Business Journal and Best Companies Group.
This survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in Los Angeles, benefiting the county’s economy, workforce and businesses. The list is made up of 100 companies.
TAG Energy has been named one of this year’s Best Places to Work in Los Angeles. In 2012 TAG Energy placed in 11th place in the small business category then climbed to 10th in 2013 and 2014. We’re hoping to be at a higher rank this year!
Companies from across the county entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Los Angeles. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience.
This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Los Angeles, analyzed the data and determined the final rankings.
TAG Energy feels that is our commitment to our core values, holistic approach to team development and fun, energetic atmosphere that has placed us on this prestigious list for another year!
