Our People & Culture

Ask an Aecon employee and most will say the work we do coast to coast, here and abroad, can easily be summarized as challenging, dynamic, fast-paced and exciting. The sectors in which we carry out some of the country's biggest projects - developing resources, generating power, expanding transportation, and enhancing our social, manufacturing and urban infrastructure -demands equally dynamic qualities in our people. And we say with pride, that we have that at Aecon. We strive to hire the most talented, determined, qualified people in the business, offer them generous opportunities to grow and develop their careers, and do so in an environment that encourages success under the framework of our Vision, Mission and Core Values.

What does it mean to work at Aecon?
Here's how one Aecon employee summarizes it...

“Pride is an emotion which refers to a strong sense of self-respect, a refusal to be humiliated, as well as joy in the accomplishments of oneself or a person, group, nation or object that one identifies with.  I have Aecon Pride.

I was privileged enough to participate in the First Annual Safety Conference.  At the end of the three-day conference, we all received Aecon embroidered jackets, which I proudly wore immediately and still do to this day. 

A jacket?  What is the importance of a jacket?  Well let me tell you, I wear that jacket with Pride. 

It was a Saturday afternoon when I was driving and happened to see a man raking leaves.  On any other day I’d have driven by unnoticed, but not this day, not this man, for he was wearing an Aecon embroidered jacket.  I honked the horn, held up the embroidered sleeve of my red Aecon jacket and waved wildly, grinning from ear to ear.  I was like a child who had just seen a long, lost friend.  He smiled and waved in return.  We shared a bond; we were proud Aecon employees.  

I spent the rest of the day with a warm fuzzy feeling inside. Aecon is a company whose logo you wear proudly on your sleeve and thoughtfully in your heart.  It's no surprise that we received the 50 Best Employer ranking, for Aecon truly is an incredible employer!
