Learning, paying attention

Tanner Sandal, a second-year apprentice at Olympic Companies SD, was recently named the Apprentice of the Year by his team. We got a chance to sit down with him and talk about what he's building at Olympic.

Over the decades in construction, we've seen and often hear of the pride that comes with the job. Our crew members—seasoned or new—at Olympic Companies S.D. speak of this often when they talk about working in the trades. We're building things that last, things that are bigger than us—for our families and communities across the region. Our apprenticeship program has helped us shape the future of many hardworking team members over the decades, who in turn have dedicated their time and skills to building with us. For a career path that's often misunderstood, under-recognized, or dismissed, working in construction has paved the way for stability, longevity, growth, and satisfaction for those who have invested in it. We spoke to one of our apprentices who viewed this path as a viable one for his future, when college didn't pan out for them.

Safety initiatives within any industry are shaped by the values of a company, its people and the nature of its work. They also shift and adapt to the changing needs of the time. For Olympic Companies, safety and building a work ethic around it has been integral to the success of their people and projects.
