Jill had this to say about Kiewit’s training program:

I have to admit that, being a cowgirl at heart, I was influenced by the rodeo.  What a creative and exciting way to reward employees for acquiring these new skills and being able to ride that “bull” machinery!

Kiewit has an usual way of helping employees improve their skills. The company deals with heavy machinery (such as backhoes and compactors) which require practice in operating. To help solidify the training, after they learn how to use the machines, they compete in an “Equipment Rodeo” with a chance to win prizes.
