DENVER, Colo. (April 4, 2023) – PCL Construction has been recognized by Great Place To Work® and Fortune® magazine as one of the 2023 Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For®. This is PCL’s fourteenth time being named to this prestigious list, this year coming in at No. 90. Earning a spot means that PCL has surpassed rigorous benchmarks, establishing itself as one of the best places to work in the country.
“It’s an honor to make the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® list this year, especially as the only commercial construction company, “said Deron Brown, president and chief operating officer, U.S. operations. “We are a people-first business, and this ranking truly reflects PCL’s commitment to not just building a better future, but building our people and investing in the communities we work in.”
As a 100% employee-owned company, PCL employees believe the ownership business model is a major contributing factor to being one of the best companies to work for.
“We have a diverse and broadly held employee ownership model that positively reflects employee confidence in the organization, and drives accountability to our communities, clients and to our core values,” said Brown. “PCL’s values are the foundation that holds us to the highest standards of corporate social responsibility with an uncompromising commitment to diversity, inclusion, sustainability and innovation.”
To determine the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For®, Great Place To Work analyzed the anonymous survey responses of more than half a million employees from Great Place To Work Certified™ companies with at least 1,000 workers. Companies also submitted essays describing their efforts to offer generous and innovative support for workers, which were validated against employee survey responses.
“To say I am proud to work for one of the top 100 companies in the U.S. would be an understatement,” said Tiffany Whipple, PCL senior project manager. “I believe that our culture of camaraderie sets us apart. We are a company committed to building better communities.”
Making the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® list is highly competitive. Survey responses reflect a comprehensive picture of the workplace experience. Honorees were selected based on their ability to offer positive outcomes for employees regardless of job role, race, gender, sexual orientation, work status, or other demographic identifiers.
“It’s in times like these that the best workplaces separate themselves,” says Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place To Work. “In a challenging economy, many companies reduce investments in their people and scale back goals for diversity, equity, and inclusion. But these companies, the 100 Best, relentlessly pursue a better work experience for every employee, and if anything, double down on the employee experience regardless of title, tenure, gender, or ethnicity. These companies know this is how you increase performance, productivity, and your innovation velocity when your firm needs it the most,” says Bush.
