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 team building. 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.
