Thankful to work for a company that believes in improving their worker’s skills. Otto Baum offers certification training for many different skills in the trades. I have taken advantage of most of all the certifications for masonry and safety. I strongly believe this training has helped me in my career.

I have been with OBCI for the last 6 years. I started working here my senior year of high school through co-op as a part time receptionist/HR assistant, and later transitioned into a full-time role as union payroll specialist. The work culture here has helped me to learn and grow both personally and professionally.

Skylar Holloman, Union Payroll Specialist
