Steeno Design Studios

Workforce Challenge

Steeno Design Studios is a Hesperia-based architectural firm that provides land development, site and building design, consulting, and general contracting services for a variety of industries including residential, retail, office professional and industrial projects. With the economy improving, the company needed to add two drafters and an office assistant to keep up new customer demand.

Workforce Solution

The technical nature of Steeno Design Studios’ work meant the cost to train new employees was high. Fortunately, the County of San Bernardino Workforce Investment Board’s On-the-Job Training program offered the perfect solution. The company received partial reimbursement for training costs through the On-the-Job Training program. This made it affordable to properly prepare the three new employees in the diversified and highly technical duties of a busy architectural office.

Outcomes & Benefits

Owner of Steeno Design Studios Thomas Steeno shares, “The Workforce Investment Board’s Business Resource Team provides beneficial services that promote job creation in our local economy. It empowered our company to confidently hire from a pool of local professionals. Each time we work with the Business Resource Team and the On-the-Job Training program, we know it means success for the employee hired and for our company. We will continue to use On-the-Job Training and look forward to hiring future employees.”
