"It’s really a cultural mindset that we’re more than just co-workers, we really are a big family. The culture here and the focus on family, not only the organization as a family, but also outside the company. I’ve never been more encouraged to become a better family man than working here. Something like coaching hockey, I never thought I could make the time to do that. Since being here I was really encouraged to find a balance and make that happen."
