Honored for the Fourth Consecutive Year

Pentec Health, Inc. number fourteen on the Best Places to Work in the state of Pennsylvania for 2014. 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.

Charlie Wilson, Vice President of Human Resources at Pentec Health comments, “We are extremely proud of this important ranking which reflects a respectable company-wide employee satisfaction rate of 90 percent. This is the measure of our company from the perspective of our employees based on real data-driven evidence.” He added, “Although that number is impressive, we will continue to seek opportunities to make improvements and recruit candidates who add to our unique culture and positive environment.”

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, 25 to 249 employees and 250 or more employees.

“The culture at Pentec Health is one that revolves around the concept that “everyone” deserves special treatment; our customers, patients, families that serve as caregivers, and of course, our world class associates who represent our company so well,” stated Joseph Cosgrove, Chairman, President and CEO of Pentec Health. He adds, “Collectively, we are a group of individuals who truly cares about what we do. Our success is a testament of the caliber of people who work here.”

  • Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business
  • Be a publicly or privately held business
  • Have a facility in Pennsylvania
  • Have at least 25 employees working in Pennsylvania

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.
