PCL Construction is pleased to announce it has made the cut, once again, in being named one of Alberta’s Top Employers for 2021.
This special designation recognizes Alberta employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work. PCL has won this award 14 times since the competition began in 2006, this year for the 10th consecutive time.
“With Alberta home to our North American Headquarters and major districts in Edmonton and Calgary, we pride ourselves on being a provincial employer that truly cares for its people,” says Mike Olsson, vice president of human resources and professional development. “PCL offers a multitude of opportunities to those wanting to build a career here in Alberta. Joining our team of employee owners offers an exciting place to showcase your talents and grow in your career, even in challenging times.”
Selection is based on eight criteria: physical workspace; work atmosphere and social, health, financial, and family benefits; vacation and time off; employee communications; performance management; training skills and development; and community involvement.
Alberta’s Top Employers is organized by the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project, a national competition to determine the employers with the best workplaces, which PCL is also included in. To find out more about why PCL was selected this year, visit https://www.canadastop100.com/alberta.
PCL Construction is also pleased to announce that, for the second year in a row, it has been named one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People.
The company notes, “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.
“Beginning your career after finishing school, or starting with a new company, is an exciting time for our younger generation of workers,” says Mike Olsson, vice president of human resources and professional development. “At PCL, we make it a priority to have an exceptional student program, one that provides close to 600 placements per year throughout our company. This pipeline connects us with the next generation of talent, and each year more than 90 students become full-time PCL employees. Our younger employees have amazing opportunities to learn and grow and become integral team members very quickly. From there, the sky’s the limit.”
