Simon Lever: One of the Best Places to Work in PA 2013
Simon Lever LLP has been named one of the Best Places to Work in PA for 2013. 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 among 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.
This survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Pennsylvania, which are benefiting the state’s economy and its workforce.
According to Marlin Benedict, managing partner, “We are thrilled to receive this recognition. The Best Places to Work award is really about all of us collectively, working together as a company, living out our core values, enjoying what we do and being fulfilled in our careers. By its very nature, the award signifies a focus outward on others, which is a key and integral part of our core ideology. It also represents the attainment of a goal, which meant we needed to be and live being a Best Places to Work before receiving the recognition of that status.”
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 percent 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 percent of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.
Simon Lever LLP will be recognized at the Best Places to Work in PA awards banquet on Thursday, December 5 at the Lancaster County Convention Center in Lancaster
