DENVER, Colo. (May 3, 2024) – PCL Construction is proud to announce it has been ranked No. 1 in the Giant category on Denver Business Journal’s prestigious Best Places to Work list. This accolade recognizes companies in the Denver area that excel in creating exceptional workplaces and demonstrate outstanding commitment to their employees.

"Our award-winning culture is a testament to our employee ownership model,” said Ryan Schmidt, vice president and district manager. “Employees at PCL say that their voice is heard, that we are inclusive of all individuals, and that our focus on professional development has helped them achieve their personal career goals. This is a result of the culture we have built together, and it’s an honor to be recognized as a business leader in the Denver-area.”   

PCL offers a robust benefits package and strong commitment to charity that employees frequently mention as key reasons it is a Best Place to Work:

Competitive Benefits

Employees consistently report that the medical and dental benefits offered by PCL are highly competitive in terms of both quality and cost. Among the company’s most innovative benefits are complimentary breastmilk shipping for traveling mothers, a $200 wellness credit towards gym memberships or equipment, and a $250 contribution to a College Invest 529 plan for each new baby born to a PCL employee.

Mental Health Resources and Support

In a pioneering move this year, PCL has partnered with Lyra Health to provide both salaried and hourly (non-union) employees with access to six free therapy sessions. Through fostering open dialogue, PCL is dedicated to creating a culture that promotes preventative care, destigmatizes seeking help, and enhances mental health awareness.

Commitment to Community

Across North America, PCL offices dedicate time and financial resources to initiatives like projects for the Make-a-Wish Foundation and Habitat for Humanity builds, alongside backing various charitable events and organizations such as Red Cross and United Way. In 2023 alone, PCL donated $67,500 to 19 food banks across the United States. It is this philanthropic culture that instills pride in PCL’s workforce.
