We love our hometown of Olympia, Washington. It’s beautiful, by the water, has great history and is home to The Evergreen State College, which many of us here at Artisans Group call Alma mater. Outdoor Magazine named it one of the best college towns in the U.S. because of its downtown life and outdoor activities, not to mention its rich art and music culture. And dotted all throughout this city are the homes we’ve built, the wonderful people who have supported us and the stellar businesses we have partnered with (shout out to Olympia Coffee Roasters).
Every year, South Sound magazine publishes a ‘Best of the South Sound’ list, chosen by the votes of the people who call this area home. In the past, we took highest place for Best of the South Sound Contractors, an award we are very much proud of. This year, we have been nominated for one of the Best Places to Work in the South Sound, an award we have won in years past, and are awaiting the results for the 2016 list. Fingers crossed!
Whether we win that acknowledgement or not, we think our corporate culture is pretty rad. The Artisans Group is a team made up of passionate and funny individuals, each who bring great talent to the table and contribute to the success we’ve achieved thus far. And the city we live in definitely contributes to all of that. Oh, and don’t forget our current mascot, Gary the dog!
