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 the 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 the 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 which 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,
