Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) December 04, 2012
What makes a workplace outstanding? Ranking on Pennsylvania’s Best Places to Work list 5 out of the past 7 years, perhaps ABG Capital has the answer. The focus at ABG Capital is on people and culture, which creates a work environment in which both businesses and individuals thrive.
ABG Capital is pleased to announce that it is ranked 14th among the top 71 small/medium employers in the state, according to the thirteenth annual Best Places to Work in PA awards program. In addition to this honor, ABG Capital was also recognized locally by the Pittsburgh Business Times, ranking 41st on their list of Best Places to Work in Western Pennsylvania. This was their 6th showing in the past 8 years.
The Best Places to Work in Pennsylvania program was created by four companies: Central Penn Business Journal, Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, Team Pennsylvania Foundation, and Best Companies Group. These organizations developed this program for several reasons. The organizations were interested in helping Pennsylvanian companies retain their current workforce, attract new workers, and to distinguish the businesses in the state that attract and retain Pennsylvania's talented workforce.
This program evaluates and ranks the best places of employment in the State based on employee satisfaction and engagement, as well as workplace practices and policies. To be considered for this award, companies are required to complete the assessment process, where employers complete Benefits and Policies Questionnaires and employees complete Engagement and Satisfaction Surveys. Once this information is collected, Best Companies Group then sorts and interprets the data to determine company rankings.
“It is such an honor to once again be ranked with an elite group of outstanding companies in PA," stated Sharon Kolesar, Human Resources Manager. "Here at ABG Capital, we create values to foster a healthy life balance for our employees. To know that 75% of our ranking is based on our employees’ responses and feedback exhibits that our culture is effective.”
The winners' rankings were announced Thursday evening, November 29, 2012, at an awards ceremony at the Lancaster County Convention Center. Additionally, the ranked companies will be profiled in a supplement to the Central Penn Business Journal and other business journals across the state.
