VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, for the fourth year in a row, Kiewit is being recognized as one of this year’s Best Workplaces in Canada. For more than seven decades, Kiewit has been proudly serving Canada as a construction and engineering leader in the transportation; water/wastewater; oil, gas and chemical; power; and mining markets. This list, and related stories, appeared in a special national report released this morning in The Globe and Mail. The list recognizes companies that have exceptional workplace cultures. This recognition comes on the heels of Kiewit being named one of the FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For® in January.
Kiewit’s rich history continues to instill a sense of pride in our employees. Company culture, employee ownership, strong leadership and Kiewit’s unparalleled commitment to development and wellness programs, are only part of the reason that Kiewit made this year’s list of “Best Workplaces in Canada.”
“For Kiewit, being recognized as a great place to work speaks volumes about our employees and the outstanding work they do,” said Bruce Grewcock, chairman and CEO of parent company, Kiewit Corporation. “It is a huge accomplishment to be included in this list four years in a row alongside other top companies. While this honor tells us what many of us already know, it’s nice to be recognized in a way that reinforces the culture we work so hard to build and maintain.”
Just as last year, two-thirds of the selection process was based on an employee survey, which makes this recognition especially rewarding for Kiewit and its employees.
This list of “Best Workplaces in Canada” is compiled by Great Place to Work® Institute Canada, a global research and management consultancy with expertise on workplace transformation. The list provides insight relative to the five trust-building dimensions of a great place to work®: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.
This year’s list received more than 300 nominations and more than 60,000 employees participated in the 2014 “Best Workplaces in Canada” survey.

With its roots dating back to 1884, the employee-owned company operates through a network of offices and projects in the United States, Canada and Australia. Kiewit offers construction and engineering services in a variety of markets including transportation, water/wastewater, power, oil, gas and chemical, building and mining.
