About Best Places to Work in PA
The awards program, created in 2000, is one of the first statewide programs of its kind in the country. This survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places to be employed in Pennsylvania, benefiting the state’s economy, its workforce and businesses.
Through the research process, a survey is sent to both the employers and employees from hundreds of companies across the commonwealth. The program is a public/private partnership between Team Pennsylvania Foundation, the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, the Pennsylvania State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management and the Central Penn Business Journal.
Companies from across the state entered the two part process to determine the 100 Best Places to Work in PA. The first part of the process was evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophies, systems and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure employee experiences. This process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.
