MISSISSAUGA, ONT. — Ledcor, Mattamy Homes and Vancouver’s West Fraser Timber Co., a wood products company active in the building sector, have been named as three of Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures by Waterstone Human Capital.
The announcements were made in December with Ledcor, a Vancouver-based diversified construction company, and Toronto-based Mattamy, Canada’s largest home builder, joining West Fraser in the Enterprise category.
The awards program, in its 14th year, annually recognizes best-in-class Canadian organizations for having a culture that has helped enhance performance and sustain a competitive advantage, noted a Ledcor media release.
“We’re thrilled to see Ledcor as a winner of the 2017 Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures program. They are now a three-time recipient, having received the award in 2011 and 2014,” said Marty Parker, president and CEO and the founder of the Canada’s Most Admired awards program.
“They continue to not only maintain significant growth and business results, but also a strong pool of top talent who are engaged and committed to the organization. A North-American wide business, with a distinct family feel, Ledcor is a fantastic example of a values-driven company that puts culture as a top priority.”
“At Mattamy we’ve known for a long time that we have a special and unique culture that’s provided a competitive advantage,” said Peter Gilgan, founder and CEO of Mattamy Homes, in a statement.
“I always envisioned building a company that wasn’t just about business and making money. I wanted to build — and want to continue building — a culture where we are always thinking about and caring for employees, customers, trade partners, the communities we create and do business in, the environment and the world around us.
“It’s extremely gratifying that our culture, and its impact on our company’s long-term performance, has been recognized externally as well.”
