EDMONTON, AB (October 10, 2012) – The PCL family of companies is pleased to announce that it has earned a spot on Canada’s Top 100 Employers list.
“Being named to Canada’s Top 100 Employers list is confirmation that our belief in the value of our employees is just as important today as it was when we were founded in 1906,” said Mark Goldenberg, senior HRPD director. “In today’s competitive marketplace, we know that job seekers are looking to work for a company with a lot to offer. Being on the Top 100 Employer list is an important tool in attracting top talent, and it allows us to benchmark our programs against the best workplaces in Canada.”
PCL’s submission included events such as Fireside Chats, Christmas parties, and milestone celebrations; ways in which PCL staff give back to their communities through volunteerism and corporate donations; training and development resources available to employees within the PCL College of Construction, in addition to PCL’s support for external learning programs; and the company’s unique employee-ownership model.
Now entering its 13th year, Canada’s Top 100 Employers is an annual competition that recognizes Canada’s best places to work. Of the 12,500 employers that are invited to apply to the competition, only 100 spots are available to highlight organizations that offer exceptional workplaces for their employees.
The submissions for Canada’s Top 100 Employers are reviewed by an academic advisory board consisting of distinguished members who have either written or edited a major human resources textbook in Canada. Employers are evaluated using eight criteria: physical workplace; work atmosphere and social; health, financial, and family benefits; vacation and time off; employee communications; performance management; training and skill development; and community involvement. The list is not based on a company’s size or scope of work in the marketplace.
The full list of the 2013 Canada’s Top 100 Employers can be found in the October 10 issue of the Globe and Mail, and an online feature on Eluta.ca—the official career site for the Globe and Mail.
