“To be recognized by our community as a Top Company to Work For helps shine a light on the culture of PCL,” said Mike McKinney, district manager of PCL in Phoenix. “It’s because of our people that we were able to join this prestigious list. PCL also offers a wide range of benefits to employees that include a wellness reimbursement and three weeks of vacation. These, combined with the employee share offering program, help enable us to recruit and maintain the best workforce Arizona has to offer.”
All participating companies completed a two-part assessment process conducted by the independent workplace research firm, Best Companies Group (BCG). Part one of process was the Employer Questionnaire, where BCG asked about benefits, HR policies, and the fun things the employers do for their employees. Part two was the Employee Engagement and Satisfaction Survey which measured the employee experience in eight core focus areas: Leadership and Planning; Corporate Culture and Communications; Role Satisfaction; Work Environment; Relationship with Supervisor; Training; Development and Resources; Pay and Benefits; and Overall Engagement. Using the combined data from both parts of the survey process, BCG determined the top 100 organizations that made the grade.
“This Top Company list gets more competitive each year”, says Denise Gredler, Founder and CEO of BestCompaniesAZ and consulting partner for the program. “The list of winners had very impressive employee survey results averaging an overall favorable rate of 90 percent and an overall employee engagement score of 92 percent, which is more than double the national average. These winners should be very proud of their engaged workforces. This presents a powerful opportunity for award-winners to promote their company culture to retain and attract the best talent.”
