East Stroudsburg, PA – September 13, 2018 – Vigon International has been named one of the Best Places to Work in PA for 2018.
The awards program, created in 2000, is one of the first statewide programs of its kind in the country. 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.
This survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Pennsylvania, who are benefiting the state’s economy and its workforce. Employers are categorized based upon the total number of employees they have in the United States, 15 to 99 employees, 100 to 250 employees, or more than 250 employees.
This is the 8th time that Vigon has been named to the list.
To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:
– Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business
– Be a publicly or privately held business
– Have a facility in Pennsylvania
– Have at least 15 employees working in Pennsylvania
– Be in business a minimum of one year
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.
