Edmour Giguere is a single father who has worked hard to raise his son. His son is trying to learn the construction business inside and out. The company is family-owned and operated. Giguere’s plan to one day leave it to his son. There are many advantages to owning a family operated business. Family owned businesses tend to be smaller, which can lead to more specialized services. Working with family will often allow you to wear more hats and tackle a variety of assignments.
In general, a family owned business tends to treat their staff like one of the family. They include the staff in decisions more often and celebrate the holidays together. This can be the perfect environment for the right person. If you are someone who likes a more corporate structure, than a family-owned business environment may not be for you.
Another positive quality in a business that’s run by family is that the environment tends to be easier going and forgiving when it comes to work schedules, mistakes and the employee’s own family situations. In a family business, you might get the ability to work a more flexible schedule or even part-time hours.
Edmour Giguere likes the fact that he can work side-by-side with his family and share his knowledge in the construction field. He wants to build a successful business that can be left to the future generations. He is so happy that his son shares in his vision and wants to work hard to ensure its future success.
