Our Talent Development Program has been carefully crafted to support that objective by providing numerous ways for our employee-owners to grow their skills while advancing their careers. Investing in employees leads to highly skilled, engaged individuals, which in turn creates talented and engaged project teams.

Professional and Career Development

Sundt is committed to the growth and development of its employee-owners, assuring that our people are just as leading edge as our materials, processes and technologies. Creating and maintaining the industry’s best workforce means doing everything possible to create conditions for our employee-owners to be successful. That’s why we developed Sundt 101 and 102, a four-day course offered monthly at our headquarters in Tempe, Arizona. Participants learn how the company is structured, the advantages of employee-ownership, what to expect from our excellent health and wellness benefits, Sundt’s commitment to innovation, and much more. Experience shows that investing in the development of our employee-owners has a direct impact on client outcomes and the company’s performance. Our dedication to the ongoing process of improving employees’ skills and careers takes many forms at Sundt including:

  • Individual Development Plans (IDP)
  • Career Planning
  • Training Delivery
  • Tuition Reimbursement
  • Certification Support (CPC, DBIA, PE, LEED and more



Leadership is serious business at Sundt, especially since we’re an employee-owned company. One of the keys to our success is collaborative project teams and a work environment that encourages innovation and continuous improvement.

Sundt has also developed a nationally-recognized leadership program – LEAP (Leadership Excellence Accelerates Performance) - which helps prepare managers for middle and senior leadership roles. Nearly 50 percent of the senior leaders at Sundt are program graduates. Sundt also has development available for early career professionals through our START program – which enables us to accelerate leaders at all levels.

We recognize that safety, quality and productivity are in the hands of those who install the work, as they impact our ability to consistently meet or exceed our customers’ expectations. Sundt is committed to creating opportunities for our people to learn and grow and to be the best they can be.

Sundt is certified by the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) as an Accredited Training Sponsor. Our craft training and apprenticeship programs utilize the NCCER’s nationally recognized curriculum and programs for heavy equipment operation, industrial carpentry, pipe fitting, welding and ironworking.
