Bestowed by the Construction Users Roundtable (CURT), the Construction Industry Workforce Awards recognizes extraordinary, exemplary, and innovative training and education programs that lead others to a career in the construction industry. Clay Kubicek, Crossland’s Education Director, attended the awards ceremony, and received the award on Crossland’s behalf. “It was an honor to accept this award for Crossland, especially considering the number of large and respectable companies who also submitted for it. It's a great feeling to be part of Crossland's award winning team. Crossland's core values shine through its investment in training and development,” said Mr. Kubicek.
