The Central Pennsylvania-based firm was recognized for the fifth straight time

LEMOYNE, PA. (September 30, 2011) – Gunn Mowery has been named one of the 100 Best Places to Work in PA for the fifth consecutive year. The agency’s final ranking will be revealed at the Best Places to Work in PA awards banquet on Thursday, December 1, at the Lancaster County Convention Center in Lancaster. The Best Places to Work in PA companies all share one common element: A dedication to employee growth and satisfaction.

“We are thrilled to have been named a Best Place to Work in PA for the fifth straight year,” said Greg Gunn, Managing Partner of Gunn Mowery. “We have always had a basic philosophy of trying to attract and take care of the best employees, so they can attract and take care of the best clients. That gives both our employees and our clients a better experience than they can find elsewhere. Being named a Best Place to Work means we are succeeding in taking care of those great employees. We are humbled by the magnitude of the honor.”

The awards program, now in its 12th year, is one of the first statewide programs of its kind in the country. The program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places to be employed in Pennsylvania while benefitting the state’s economy, its workforce and businesses. Employers are categorized based upon the total number of employees in their company or firm. Large companies are defined as 250 or more employees while medium-sized firms are classified as 25-250 employees.

To be considered for the recognition, companies had to fulfill eligibility requirements, including having a facility in Pennsylvania and being in business for a minimum of one year. Eligibility also included for-profit or not-for-profit organizations, those of which could either be publicly or privately owned and operated.

Companies from across the state entered the two-part evaluation process, which set to determine the 100 Best Places to Work in PA. The first half, which counted for 25-percent of the final grade, assessed each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophies, systems and demographics. The second half, comprising of the final 75-percent, consisted of an employee survey to measure the overall employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process.
