At PCL Construction in Denver, employees decide which wellness programs the organization will offer.
Employee-run wellness committees at each corporate location focus on physical, financial and community wellness, as well as . The volunteers line up community service projects, Lunch ‘n’ Learn seminars, retirement planning classes, holiday parties and company trips.
Every three years, the organization conducts a survey to learn what employees want. One result, says HR Director Denny Dahl, is the firm’s focus on community service.
Example: When the firm’s 260 Denver employees contributed $600,000 to the United Way, the organization matched it.
The firm encourages employees to volunteer 35 hours a year for community projects during work time. It even arranges for employees to serve meals at local rescue missions and paint the homes of elderly neighbors.
