Central Penn Business Journal names company among “Best Places to Work in PA”

Middletown, Pa. – Central Penn Business Journal named Phoenix Contact one of the “Best Places to Work in PA.” Phoenix Contact ranked 15th among large companies (250 employees or more). The awards are held in partnership with the Best Companies Group.

“We are humbled once again our employees feel that Phoenix Contact USA is a Best Place to Work in Pennsylvania,” said Jack Nehlig, president of Phoenix Contact USA. “We take great pride in developing trusting partnerships with and creating a friendly work environment for our employees, and we are very excited to see them bring that to life.”

Best Places to Work in PA identifies, recognizes, and honors the best places of employment in Pennsylvania in three categories: small companies (15-99 employees), medium companies (100-249), and large companies (250 or more). Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data, and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.

Two parts were used to determine the rankings, with combined scores determining the top companies and the final rankings. The first consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, and demographics, worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience, which consisted of 75% of the total.

“This year’s Best Places to Work in PA winners demonstrate that a positive environment for staff creates a place where people are proud to work and produces a culture that is contagious. These companies are making a positive impact on the commonwealth of Pennsylvania by attracting talent and creating successful organizations,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, senior group publisher of Central Penn Business Journal. “We are pleased to join with the Best Companies Group to recognize these businesses.”
