East Penn Manufacturing was ranked 17th among large companies honored, and 1st among manufacturers, in the 2013 Best Places to Work in PA. The company has now been honored in the ranking for thirteen consecutive years.
The Best Places to Work in PA, conceived in 2000, was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best places of employment in Pennsylvania benefiting the state’s economy, its workforce and businesses. It represents a joint effort of the Team Pennsylvania Foundation, the PA Department of Community & Economic Development, the PA Chamber of Business & Industry, and the Central Penn Business Journal.
The Best Places to Work in PA is awarded to 100 companies: this year to 72 medium size companies, (25-250 employees) and 28 large size companies (251 or more).
In addition to information provided directly by the company, a randomly selected group of employees from each company completed a confidential survey. The survey is used to evaluate the employees’ work place experience in regards to their individual, team, and organizational experiences. Using a formula similar to Fortune’s “100 Best Companies to Work for in America,” the Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, which accounted for 75% of the total evaluation score.
