Attracting and retaining a qualified workforce is essential for any community in order to continue experiencing growth. As the older workforce retires or changes careers, qualified people must fill their positions. The Samuels Group has implemented several approaches to help this process beginning with proactively training the younger generation for future design and construction careers. Taking an active role in college internship programs, they have recently hired an intern student, from UW Stevens Point, as a full-time designer in their interior furnishing division, Samuels Group | Environments; and currently have a construction management intern from UW Stout working with them for the summer. A new program for 2011, introduced to The Samuels Group by the American General Contractors Association, brings a high school student with a strong interest in the construction industry to work with them for 475 hours over the summer. This paid work exploration provides the student with hands-on experience in the core areas of the construction industry including project management, estimating, accounting, and marketing.

Educating and molding students for a career in the construction industry, along with providing an attractive, environmentally friendly workplace and culture, has been successful for The Samuels Group. This philosophy can be implemented in any industry and will serve as a key contributor to help keep people excited about working in the Wausau area.
