Scott Construction Group has been recognized with a Platinum AON Best Small & Medium Employer Award for 2019. The annual award, given this year to only 16 Canadian companies, comes as a result of rigorous review of the company’s employee engagement completed by AON, a premier Best Employers program that measures and recognizes leading employers across Canada and worldwide, based on more than 700,000 employees across 500 Canadian Organizations.
Scott Construction achieved Platinum status for 2019 for scoring in the top quartile in the areas of employee engagement, leadership, performance culture, and employment brand. The company will receive their award at the AON Best Employers Gala in Toronto, November 21, 2018.
“We are very grateful and encouraged to see that our ‘people first’ values are being recognized in this way. This achievement reflects our ongoing efforts to ensure that Scott Construction is a preferred employer, with a fantastic culture, and is widely acknowledged as a highly engaging place to work by our staff. We have worked diligently to implement industry-leading programs within our organization, such as our Mental Health Committee, to ensure that we walk our talk every day and that our team knows their value is recognized and rewarded,” stated Darin Hughes, president at Scott Construction Group.
Under Hughes’ leadership, Scott Construction is nearing $500,000,000 in secured backlog in B.C. and Alberta construction projects in institutional, commercial, residential, clean energy, and special projects, with a rapidly growing staff nearing 100 employees operating out of Burnaby and Calgary headquarters.
AON’s managing director for Canada, Allan Shapira describes the AON Best Employer Program as “a significant achievement, earned only by setting the highest standards for workplace excellence. It takes commitment – from leaders, managers, and employees themselves – to create and maintain an engaged workplace, where leadership is effective and accountable, where the culture is performance-oriented, and where the entire organization does what it takes to be seen as an employer of choice. Recipients of the designation live up to this standard and are fully deserving of recognition.”
