EDMONTON, AB (Nov. 7, 2013) – The PCL family of companies is proud to announce that it has been named as a Best Employer in Canada by Aon Hewitt, ranking eighth on the list. This is the fifteenth time PCL has made the list.
“Being ranked in the top ten as a best employer in Canada demonstrates that our employees are being listened to and are engaged in our workplaces,” said Mark Goldenberg, PCL senior director, Human Resources and Professional Development. “It means that our employees believe PCL is a great place to work.”
Employees from more than 280 Canadian employers participated in the Best Employers study, and the 50 Best Employers were chosen based on their overall level of engagement.
The primary ranking measure is each organization’s employee engagement score, which evaluates the emotional and intellectual commitment that employees demonstrate toward their organizations.
Aon Hewitt defines employee engagement in very specific, behavioral terms. Engagement is not about creating “happy” or “loyal” employees, but about measuring the state of emotional and intellectual involvement or commitment of the workforce.
The results of the 2014 Best Employers survey include; 93% of respondents believe that they work for a socially responsible organization, 95% of respondents agree that safety and security are important at PCL, and; 98% of respondents agree that they work for an ethical organization.
