Montreal, QC — Pomerleau Inc., one of Canada’s leading builders in the institutional, industrial, commercial, infrastructure and civil works sectors, unveiled its new corporate vision and new values today.
After a coast-to-coast expansion and the celebration of its 50th anniversary, both in 2016, Pomerleau decided to revisit its corporate vision and values. “It was a perfect moment to reflect on our evolution and our future goals—and the ideal time for us to rethink a vision and values that are in line with our ambitions,” said president and CEO Pierre Pomerleau.
“These are values that will grow with us—and that will make us grow. They will guide our behaviour and our decisions from now on,” he explained. Internal focus groups with employees from across the organization was essential to this rethinking.
Pomerleau’s vision, “Rethinking construction together, from concept to completion. Everywhere. All the time. Period” is strongly supported by five values:
Francis Pomerleau, president of Pomerleau’s Canadian Building Operations, was particularly enthusiastic about the Love value. “To be successful in business, love thy people,” he explained. “It’s important to give them challenges, and allow them to accomplish great things.” Added Pierre Pomerleau, “If you love what you do, you are going to make the extra effort to make yourself better and make this company better.”
