East Penn is pleased to announce that the company ranks in Pennsylvania’s Best-In-State Employers for 2020 by Forbes and Statista. This new recognition takes the place of the discontinued America’s Best Large Employers recognition that the company was previously ranked in for the last two years.
The new ranking was based off of an anonymous survey given to 80,000 employees across the country working at companies with at least 500 people. The list is divided into 51 rankings—one for each of the 50 states, plus the District of Columbia.
Prior to the award, there was no submission process and companies were not made aware of the survey. All the surveys were anonymous, allowing participants to openly share their opinions. The respondents were asked to rate their employers on a variety of criteria, including: safety of work environment, competitiveness of compensation, and opportunities for advancement. Statista then asked respondents how likely they’d be to recommend their employer to others, and to nominate organizations in industries outside their own.
East Penn was ranked among 100 of the most prestigious companies in the State. To see the ranking, go to the Forbes America’s Best Employers By State 2020 List: https://www.forbes.com/best-employers-by-state/#1047f4a5487a
