2017 MERIT Employer of the Year (Less than 25 Employees)
Miller Contracting – Prince Albert
Based in Prince Albert, Miller Contracting has grown to become one of the premier general contractors in the northern region, operating in both the residential and commercial sectors. The company has been in business since 1972 and attributes much of their success to the relationship they build with their customers which is based on honesty, open communication, reliability and outstanding quality. They recently became a “HOLMES” approved constructor, a major accomplishment in the residential industry.
Miller’s relationship with their employees is built on the same fundamentals. Many of their people have been with the company for decades, a testament to their culture of leadership and teamwork. They have successfully created a positive working environment that ensures employees feel valued and respected through empowerment, trust and recognition.
Sometimes small contracting businesses may feel as though they can’t offer what the larger companies can. However, Miller Contracting has turned their size into a distinct advantage. They truly care about the well-being of their employees and their families by providing exceptional support for any type of situation and flexibility to allow employees to integrate their personal lives into a busy work schedule. An ongoing focus on safety also ensures all employees go home safe at the end of the day.
The company is a pillar of support in the community, contributing both funding and labour to a rural volunteer fire department, Habitat for Humanity and a vital care home facility.
Miller Contracting is a strong example of a great employer, a great builder and a great corporate citizen, making them an excellent recipient of the 2017 Merit Employer of the Year Award.
