Wade believes the company’s shareholder program is a “gamechanger” in the construction industry. PCL is 100% employee-owned, which means employees have the opportunity to invest in their own hard work. Wade says this allows him to ignore what’s going on with the stock market and instead focus on what’s best for the company and long-term goals beyond what the next quarter holds.
