Edmonton, Alberta (Jan. 17, 2020) – PCL Construction is proud to announce that it has been named one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People. 

We’ve always known our exciting construction projects and significant professional development and mentoring opportunities make PCL a great choice for younger employees. This special designation recognizes the employers that offer the nation’s best workplaces and programs for young people starting their careers.  

Canada’s Top Employers for Young People is a competition organized by Canada’s Top 100 Employers project, a national competition to determine which employers lead their industries in offering the best workplaces for their employees. PCL was named one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers in November—for the 11th year in a row. 

“Landing on Canada’s Top 100 Employer’s list is always exciting, but this additional recognition is the icing on the cake,” says Mike Olsson, vice president of human resources and professional development. “We have an exceptional student program that provides over 500 placements per year. This connects us with talented young people and each year more than 90 students become full-time PCL employees. Our younger employees have amazing opportunities to learn and grow, and they become integral team members very quickly. From there, the sky’s the limit.” 

The 2020 list of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People will be published Jan. 17 in an online feature on the Globe and Mail’s website and on Eluta.ca. To find out more about why PCL was selected this year, please visit  Canada’s Top Employer’s for Young People website
