Edmonton, Alberta (November 7, 2017) – The PCL family of companies is pleased to announce that it has been included on the list of Canada’s Top 100 Employers of 2018. This marks the ninth consecutive year PCL has been recognized as a top Canadian workplace.  

Holding the title of the largest general contracting organization in Canada, PCL employs more than 4,500 salaried employees and 10,000 tradespeople across the company. PCL employees enjoy a culture centered on professional development and training opportunities, flexible benefits, health and wellness initiatives, social events, and a strong focus on community giving. PCL is 100 percent employee owned—a model unique in the construction industry that ensures employees share in the success of the company.  

“We are continually looking to raise the bar and find new ways we can make PCL a top workplace for our employees and lead the industry in attracting and retaining top talent,” said Mike Olsson, vice president of human resources and professional development, PCL Construction. “Earning another spot among Canada’s Top 100 Employers confirms what our employees already know—that PCL is a great place to work, develop your potential, and give back to the community.”

Canada’s Top 100 Employers is a national competition that recognizes industry-leading employers who offer exceptional workplaces for their employees. Of the 13,000 employers invited to apply, only 100 are chosen by an academic advisory board of distinguished human resources professionals.  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 skills development; and community involvement.

The full list of the 2018 Canada’s Top 100 Employers can be found in a special magazine feature in the November 7 issue of the Globe and Mail​.
