We entered the program,” said Lisa Christman, Senior Director, Human Resources, “because we think that our culture is unique and our employees recognize that. The company is very proud of its employees, and we’re proud to be a winner of this award."

K’NEX, the only U.S. construction toy company focused on Building Worlds Kids Love®, is pleased to announce that the Philadelphia Business Journal has named K’NEX one of its Best Places to Work in the Philadelphia region. The award recognizes K’NEX Brands achievements in creating a positive work environment that attracts and retains employees through a combination of benefits, working conditions and company culture.

K’NEX Brands consists of the popular toy building set wholesale and distribution company, K’NEX L.P.G., and its sister company, The Rodon Group, a high-precision injection molding company. The Hatfield-based K’NEX Brands was one of hundreds to enter, securing its position on this prestigious list based on the strength of its benefits and programs, as evaluated by its employees.

“We entered the award program,” said Lisa Christman, Senior Director, Human Resources, “because we think that our culture is unique and our employees clearly recognize that. The company is very proud of its employees, and we’re proud to be a winner of this award.”

Fifty companies will be honored at an open-to-the-public awards program on Wednesday, September 18, between 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., at the Wells Fargo Center, where top winners per category will be revealed for the very first time. Philadelphia Business Journal’s Small Business Expo will take place on the same day from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The Awards Program is sponsored by Comcast Spectacor, Mars Philadelphia, and MidAtlantic Employers’ Association and Quantum Workplace.

Philadelphia Business Journal’s research partner, Quantum Workplace, tabulated the results of thousands of online surveys completed by employees to establish the rank order. Common themes among top companies focused on work-life balance; respect and caring for employees; recognition of accomplishments; feeling empowered; good teamwork and commitment to community.
