DENVER, Colorado – January 19, 2012 -- FORTUNE announced Thursday that PCL Construction, one of North America’s top general contractors, has been ranked #29 on the 15th annual “100 Best Companies to Work For” list. This is the seventh consecutive year that PCL Construction achieved this designation. The full list will be published in the magazine’s February 6 issue and online now at fortune.com/bestcompanies.
PCL’s US president and chief operating officer, Peter Beaupré said, “Our seventh consecutive ranking on this list positively reflects the evolution of our company and our industry. Our employee’s efforts, particularly through tough economic times, have continued to drive the quality of our workplace, and also the success of our business, safety on our projects, and our philanthropic leadership in the communities where we live.  We are fortunate to have such a remarkable team.”
A leader in the construction industry, PCL’s employee-owned structure, wellness initiatives, philanthropic efforts, and training programs all contributed to this year’s placement on this prestigious list.
“PCL's unique employee ownership program compels us to be accountable for our actions,” said Jeremy Voss, project manager for the recently awarded Streamsong Resort in Polk County, Florida. “It also sets the foundation for teamwork, creating an excellent work environment.”
To pick the 100 Best Companies to Work For, FORTUNE partners with the Great Place to Work Institute to conduct the most extensive employee survey in corporate America; 280 firms participated in this year’s survey. More than 246,000 employees at those companies responded to a survey created by the institute, a global research and consulting firm operating in 45 countries around the world. Two-thirds of a company’s score is based on the results of the institute’s Trust Index survey, which is sent to a random sample of employees from each company. The survey asks questions related to their attitudes about management’s credibility, job satisfaction, and camaraderie. The other third is based on responses to the institute’s Culture Audit, which includes detailed questions about pay and benefit programs and a series of open-ended questions about hiring practices, methods of internal communication, training, recognition programs, and diversity efforts. After evaluations are completed, if news about a company comes to light that may significantly damage employees’ faith in management, we may exclude it from the list.  Any company that is at least five years old and has more than 1,000 U.S. employees is eligible.
