Top Workplace: A Message from our Directors

On November 30, 2017, IRC was honored at the Riverside Convention Center by the Southern California News Group/Inland News Group as the Top Workplace in the Inland Empire, Large Company category.  According to the Inland News Group, the awards are considered the “Oscars of the HR industry”.  They also state that “a company filled with happy, productive employees is one of the best testimonials a company can earn”.   This award is based on the responses received from an independent survey of the employees.  Approximately 85% of the employees responded.  They would not have responded so positively if they did not enjoy interacting with each other and doing the work they do.  They are all very much appreciated.

We would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to all our employees for making this happen.  To us, this means that our employees truly enjoy the work that they do in helping improve the quality of life for our consumers.  It also means that they sincerely appreciate their co-workers and the support they receive from each other.  The award is particularly gratifying because our employees have been through some very difficult times recently.  The award was received just three days before the second anniversary of the December 2, 2015, terrorist attack at our Conference Center.  Following that event, it was imperative that everyone pull together and support each other as best we could.  Obviously, they have succeeded.

Thank you, Lavinia and Kevin
