The survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Pennsylvania benefiting the state's economy and its workforce. Employers are placed in one of two categories based upon the total number of employees they have in the United States: 25 to 249 employees or 250 or more employees. Entrants must be a publicly or privately held company, in business for at least one year and have one facility with 25 or more employees in Pennsylvania.
Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the 100 Best Places to Work in PA. The first part of this 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 the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process.
