PHILADELPHIA GEAR CORPORATION NAMED ONE OF PENNSYLVANIA'S BEST PLACES TO WORK FOR THIRD STRAIGHT YEAR
116-Year-Old Gearing Company Continues to Earn Employee Praise
KING OF PRUSSIA, PA, October 6, 2008 ---- Philadelphia Gear Corporation was recently named as one of the Best Places to Work in Pennsylvania for the third consecutive year. The program recognizes 100 companies throughout the state in two groups: 50 medium-sized companies (25-250 employees) and 50 large companies (251 or more employees). Philadelphia Gear was recognized in the medium category.
"This statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Pennsylvania," said Philadelphia Gear President and CEO Carl Rapp. “Being honored for the third year in a row is a true testament to the extraordinary people who work here and the roles they embrace to meet the needs of our customers."
Companies from across the state entered the two-part process. The first component was an evaluation of workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The balance consisted of a survey measuring employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and final rankings.
Philadelphia Gear Corporation will be honored at the Best Places to Work in PA evening awards ceremony on December 2, 2008 at the Hershey Lodge & Convention Center. The final rankings will be revealed at the ceremony.
