The Construction Record Podcast – Episode 258: From teachers to trade consultants

Journal Of Commerce Image Journal Of Commerce

On this episode of The Construction Record Podcast, digital media editor Warren Frey speaks with Kayti Bjorklund-Strandlund and Ry Bostrom, who both work at Minnesota-based DW Companies while running Repurposed Educator, an initiative based on their former careers as teachers who switched to construction and are applying what they know to changing industry culture.

Bjorklund-Strandlund and Bostrom explained that they focus on team building and professional development for all employees in a construction firm, and endeavour to end a toxic work culture the industry still struggles with.

They also use their knowledge of what Gen Z and millennials look for as they enter or navigate the workforce to help companies recruit younger employees into the industry.

You can listen to The Construction Record on the Daily Commercial News and Journal of Commerce websites as well as on Apple PodcastsSpotify and Amazon Music’s podcast section. Our previous interview with construction marketing expert Jeani Ringkob here. Thanks for listening.
