Poole’s Rules, created by PCL’s
founder Ernest Poole, continues to form
the foundation for how PCL does


PCL Construction has made FORTUNE’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” list each year since 2005 because of the organization’s array of benefits and dynamic culture. A great culture is the foundation for success—for the organization and partners. It’s what makes PCL’s promise “Together We Build Success” a reality.
“It is an incredible honor to be recognized on FORTUNE’s ‘100 Best Companies to Work For’ list for the tenth year in a row,” said Shaun Yancey, president and COO, US Operations. “I’m so proud to be a part of the PCL family. The passion and commitment of our employees are unsurpassed and tell a great deal about who we are as a company.”
The foundation of PCL’s deep-rooted culture stems back to PCL’s founder, Ernest Poole, who created several guidelines to help the organization carry on the PCL culture and tradition. Although PCL has evolved as a company since its founding in 1906, the guidelines known as “Poole’s Rules” still govern the way PCL does business today.


To select the “100 Best Companies to Work For,” FORTUNE partners with the Great Place to Work® Institute, a global human resource consulting, researching, and training firm that conducts extensive employee surveys. A questionnaire is sent to a random sample of over 1,200 employees and seeks to identify employees’ attitudes on the credibility of management, job satisfaction, and team spirit.
“The FORTUNE submission is an extensive process that requires months of planning and preparation, but what the past 10 years have shown us is that hard work and dedication pay off,” said Brett Dolan, director, Human Resources.
Employee responses make up two-thirds of a company’s overall score, while the additional third is based on responses from the institute’s Culture Audit, which identifies company hiring practices, internal communication techniques, training, recognition programs, and diversity efforts. Employee responses have continuously proved that PCL is, in fact, a great place to work. “I enjoy working here because of the challenging work and supportive environment, which allows employees at all levels to thrive,” said Shannon Latham, PCL’s US Head Office national director of HRPD. “I am proud to call myself part of the PCL family.”


PCL Construction celebrates the past, builds for the future, and works hard to continually share the visions of, and build success with, its employees, clients, trades, subcontractors, and communities.
