Gordon Murdock - Atwork Construction Inc.

When Gordon Murdock first came to Community Futures South Central in 2015, he knew he wanted to be a business owner but wasn’t sure how to get started. After meeting with our team, he decided it was time to venture out on his own. Now running a successful construction and scaffolding company for almost 10-years, Gord’s favourite part of owning his own business is being able to direct the outcomes, and knowing the decisions are his. He has had second thoughts and stresses over the years, but follows the mantra, “My time, my dime. My success, my failure." Atwork Construction Inc. will start employee profit sharing at the next large scale project and he believes the success of his business is directly contingent on his staff, including a good bookkeeper. Hiring people with specific credentials, and stepping out of the way has worked in building Atwork's business. He works closely with his brother and son believing that having the support of family is key. Gord has taken his experiences in both life and work to create a successful business with the help of Community Futures South Central.
