Edmonton, Alberta (October 21, 2013) – The PCL family of companies is pleased to announce that it has earned a spot on Canada’s Top Employers list for the second consecutive year.
“Being recognized as one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers confirms our commitment to being an employer-of-choice,” said Mark Goldenberg, senior HRPD director. “We have always recognized the value of quality employees and we are constantly striving to improve the workplace to attract and retain the best talent in the industry.”
For its submission, PCL included several benefits that employees value. First among them is PCL’s commitment to safety that has resulted in an industry-leading safety record. In-house employee development programs at PCL, like its College of Construction where employees can access learning resources and other professional development services, figured prominently in the submission. PCL’s award-winning community and family-focused approach to employee engagement was also highlighted.
This year marks the 14th edition of Canada’s Top 100 Employers, which annually recognizes Canada’s best places to work. Organizations are judged on their ability to attract and retain employees as well as employee prospects within an organization. The submissions of 25,000 employers were scrutinized and compared to other employers in their industry and region to determine the 100 best workplaces for employees.
The complete list of Canada’s Top 100 Employers will be published in the October 21st issue of the Globe and Mail. A detailed account of the reasons for selection will be featured on Eluta.ca—the official career site of the Globe and Mail.
