Professional Development

We believe employee development is the most important aspect of our business, and that our various development programs are a major determining factor in our current and future success. “People development” is one of our fundamental business initiatives, even more important than product development, technology, etc. Families, communities and schools develop people to a certain point. Once someone is employed at STOBER, we are very intentional about continuing their personal development.

Professional Development Programs:

  • Pre-apprenticeship
  • Apprenticeship
  • Co-ops
  • Mentorship/Shadowing
  • Tuition Reimbursement

Our development stretches beyond just apprenticeships. We offer tuition reimbursement for all employees so they can further their education. We also have a wellness program which encompasses both financial wellness and health wellness. Insurance at STOBER is completely free to employees. Classes have been offered to employees on dieting, exercise, and quitting smoking. STOBER has offered financial education programs, including Pete the Planner.
