Monday, March 13, 2017
Burnsville, Minnesota (March 9, 2017) – Fortune magazine has named PCL Construction to its “100 Best Companies to Work For” list for the 12th consecutive year. PCL, one of North America’s top 10 general contractors, ranked number 98 on the list this year.
“To be named on Fortune’s list for twelve years in a row is truly a testament to our dedicated employees, unique employee-ownership model, and connection to our communities,” said Michael Headrick, Vice President and Minneapolis District Manager. “This is what makes PCL so strong and sets it apart as a top construction company.”
PCL has consistently made Fortune’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” list since 2005 because of the dynamic culture, wellness initiatives, and philanthropic endeavors. Beyond offering a comprehensive benefits package and professional development programs, PCL encourages employees to achieve work-life balance by offering a flexible working schedule, gym reimbursement, and employee health and wellness programs, along with the opportunity to celebrate accomplishments throughout the year, whether to mark a successful project, completion of a project, or milestone anniversary.
“Having PCL recognized as one of the best companies to work across the United States is a significant honor that we take tremendous pride in,” said Shaun Yancey, President and COO of US Operations. “It’s because of our employee’s hard work, passion, and devotion to our company that we’re on this list.”
Two-thirds of a company’s survey score is based on the results of an employee survey, which is sent to a random sample of employees from each company. This survey asks questions related to employees’ attitudes about management’s credibility, overall job satisfaction, and camaraderie. The other third is based on responses to the Culture Audit, which includes detailed questions about pay and benefit programs and a series of open-ended questions about hiring practices, methods of internal communication, training, recognition programs, and diversity efforts.
