Bicknell Inc. in Juneau is one of the five statewide winners of the 2011 “Employer of Excellence Award” from the Alaska Construction Academics.
“We think that recruiting entry-level talent into the industry is very important. We like to bring along fresh, young talent whenever we get the opportunity,” said Dan Miller, general manager of Bicknell’s building division. “It’s really refreshing to find people excited about choosing the construction industry as a career path.”
A press release from Alaska Construction Academics states Bicknell was nominated because of its strong commitment to training the next generation of construction workers and for providing experience opportunities for Construction Academy graduates.
