Graham Named an Alberta Top Employer

January 30, 2024

We are proud to announce that Graham has once again earned a spot among this year’s Top 80 Employers in Alberta, marking our 16th consecutive year on this list. This recognition reaffirms our commitment to fostering a workplace environment that prioritizes the well-being, growth, and inclusivity of our team members.

Graham’s selection stems from our steadfast dedication to providing comprehensive support resources and programs for both physical and mental health, as well as our emphasis on skills enhancement through initiatives like the in-house Builders Framework. Moreover, our unique employee-owned structure not only cultivates innovation but also offers financial incentives, empowering our workforce to thrive.

We also take great pride in our culture of inclusion, and championing support and opportunities for graduates entering the construction industry. Alicia Donnelly, operations director for maintenance and turnaround in Fort Saskatchewan, reflects on our strategic focus on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), highlighting Graham’s pioneering role in driving change within the traditionally male-dominated construction sector.

“It’s really nice to see an organization creating a strategy on how to continue growth in that DEI space,” she says. “In the construction industry, it’s still predominantly male and does need some focus and strong leadership, and Graham is definitely leading the way.”

Colin Aitken, Executive Vice President, Buildings, shares his insight when working with young people:

“When I work with young graduates, I tell them there is an opportunity to spend your career here. There are lots of growth opportunities and education.”

While being recognized among the Top 80 Alberta Employers is a significant achievement, we are equally honored to have earned a spot on Canada’s Top 100 Employers 2024 list.

At Graham, our ongoing mission is to not only meet but exceed the expectations of our employees, enabling them to thrive both personally and professionally. This prestigious recognition serves as a testament to our unwavering commitment to creating a workplace where every individual feels valued, supported, and empowered to reach their fullest potential.
