Safest Construction Companies in Calgary

Calgary’s Borger Group of Companies is proud to be the first Canadian construction company to rollout the Respect in the Workplace™ certification for all of its employees.

“We recognize that in order to attract the best people we need to strive towards having the best working environment” said the company’s President Bill Borger Jr. Borger is optimistic that this program will beneficial to Borger’s already family oriented culture – “everyone does the same mandatory program before entering a job site or our office, I did the program before asking the team to do it” he continued.

Almost 60% of working Canadians have experienced or witnessed workplace harassment, according to a survey released by Queen’s School of Business at Queen’s University and the construction industry often gets a bad rap in this regard. Contrary to construction industry stereo types about aggressive behaviour, Borger has tried to create a culture built on a foundation of respect, safety, and shared accountability.

“One of the best ways to deal with workplace culture issues such as bullying and harassment is to find ways to prevent it in the first place. What often stands in the way is the confidence to deal with these issues head on, particularly for front line workers and supervisors. In many businesses the typical response is to turn a blind eye, which never makes things better. Preventative programs like Borger’s are a good opportunity to start the conversation about the behaviours that align with your core values and expectations, says Debby Carreau, President of Inspired HR.
