Mutual Benefit Group, Huntingdon, 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.
“MBG is happy to provide a corporate environment that is recognized as a great place to work,” comments Steve Sliver, president and CEO of Mutual Benefit Group. “However, as I’ve stated before in response to our many successful rankings, MBG is a great place to work, first and foremost, because we have the greatest people. They are the critical ingredient for our Best Place designation.”
This is the eighth time Mutual Benefit has made the list.
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.
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.
Mutual Benefit Group will be recognized at the Best Places to Work in PA awards banquet on Thursday, November 29, 2018, at the Lancaster County Convention Center in Lancaster, PA. Rankings will be revealed at the ceremony. Tickets may be purchased online at www.CPBJ.com/events.
