Off the top of your head, think about your ideal workplace. How is the office setup? What mix of personalities do your co-workers encompass? Is your upper management respectable and genuinely interested in your wellbeing? Is it a large or small company? What responsibilities do you carry? What does your future look like?

Now, picture this - it’s a Monday morning on a cold winter day. You shudder at the thought of getting out of your cozy bed, at first, but then you remember what day it is and how you get to see your favorite co-worker today. Today is the day where you start on an exciting new project that helps you fine-tune your skills as a professional to work towards your next promotion. 

Freshly motivated, you happily get out of bed, get ready and make your way to work. You smile as you step into the office and greet your co-workers to the start of a new week, knowing that you’ll be in a truly collaborative place where you will be challenged to grow and make a difference.  You’ll feel confident taking on new challenges and be encouraged to take risks that will enable your professional growth but feel secure knowing that the team will support you.

Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, for Stephen Bartone at Industrial Resources, it’s his reality.
