Here at PRIER, we are constantly evolving. In the beginning of 2016, we switched to software that required more an upgrade in our technology (i.e. tablets, scanning equipment, cloud usage, etc.). This was an exciting yet arduous move, but we needed our employees to switch gears; sort of like a bicycle.

Any company can be in business employing several good people and never be successful. A professional baseball team can have a few great athletes and still be unable to have a winning record. To become a winning team you need much more than good or great people, you need the right people. The right people don’t always have to be the best or hardest working members of the team but rather the ones who have the desire to do more or give more than others to reach a higher standard of success.

When thinking of the most awkward experiences one might have on the job, I’ll bet that going to a sexual harassment seminar with your father isn’t on most people’s lists. I’m lucky enough to have it on mine. For most teenagers, moving away from home is something they look forward to, to get away from their parents. Maybe I’m just different. There’s a plethora of things I could be doing with my spring break, I chose the one that lets me see my dad at lunch every day.

Do you ever wonder how much of your plumbing knowledge is true? How many of those myths you've heard for years actually work? Here at PRIER, we get asked a lot of crazy and thought-provoking questions each day and it made me wonder if what I “know” is actually true or not.
