A few weeks ago, I was getting ready to head into the office on a Monday morning after being on vacation with my family for a week. As I wished my kids a good day at school, they expressed how depressed they were to go back. I asked “Why?”, and my daughter bemoaned, “What do you mean? Don’t you hate going back to work?” I laughed and said, “Actually, I am excited and I missed work very much. I missed everybody and am looking forward to seeing everybody.” She quickly responded “Yeah, that’s because you get to choose where you work and you don’t have to go.”
It’s true. We each make a choice about where to work, and I am grateful for every person that makes the choice to work at StratEx; the choice to be a part of our unique culture, by adding to the overall fabric of what makes our company what it is. This is what excites me to show up every day.
So, it’s gratifying that the rest of Illinois is finally starting to get to know what we already know: The Daily Herald Business Ledger and HRMA selected StratEx as an honoree of the Best Places to Work in Illinois award in the small business category. Out of hundreds of small business nominees, we were selected as the 9th best place to work in the state.
We are honored by the award and look forward to continuing our mission of bringing Friction Free service to the masses.
