Dear BELL clients, partners and friends,

We are proud of our long history of giving back to the local community. As we near the end of the year, we are spending extra time giving back to the people and organizations in our community who have given us the opportunity to continue building better…one relationship at a time.

Please read on for the latest. On behalf of the entire team at BELL, we wish you a very merry and safe holiday season.

Sincerely,
Eric Pyle, President, & the BELL team

At BELL, we make it a priority to give back to the communities where we live, work and play. The holidays offer us a big opportunity to make an impact, but we aim to put our community first during every season. 
The News recently interviewed Rebecca Ozols, member & VP of growth and strategy, about BELL’s philosophy behind giving back and how the company makes the holidays about much more than gifts and time with family and friends.

How BELL is Building a Brighter Future by

Investing in Interns & Apprentices

National Apprenticeship Week is a nationwide celebration designed to showcase the value of internships and apprenticeships. As we reflect on the significance of this week, we are proud to contribute to the development of skilled professionals in the construction industry. Our programs are designed not only to provide practical experience, but also to instill a sense of commitment and craftsmanship that aligns with our core values in the future generation of workers. 

In part 1 of our celebration of National Apprenticeship Week, we interviewed some of our former interns who have since joined the BELL team. Read below to learn about their internship journey, its role in preparing them for the future, how BELL contributes to addressing the demand for construction professionals, and more.
