Barry Isett & Associates, Inc. is proud to announce that the firm has been named one of the 2020 Best Places to Work in Pennsylvania by the Central Penn Business Journal. The company has been recognized with 29 other businesses in the medium-sized company category for the second year in a row. This honor, founded in 1999 by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development and Team Pennsylvania, recognizes firms across Pennsylvania based upon their company size.
Eligible employers must be in business for a minimum of a year, employ 15 or more staff, and have a facility in the Commonwealth. Both publicly traded and privately-owned firms are eligible for the award. In addition, for-profit, not-for-profit and government entities can take part. Hundreds of companies located throughout Pennsylvania submit nominations to be considered for the recognition.
Isett began the application process in July, and was asked to identify the company’s benefits, philosophy, culture, and policies. Confidential employee-engagement surveys were distributed to Isett associates throughout August. Company data is evaluated by Best Companies Group with a two-part approach: the policies and practices as reported by the company and employee satisfaction based upon individual survey responses.
On Thursday, December 3rd, Isett associates attended the virtual celebration and learned the firm finished 18th among peer-sized companies. This is an improvement over last year’s finish in the same category.
“The data that we get back from the Best Places to Work in PA survey gives us comprehensive insight as to where we are doing well and where we need to focus on improving,” said Kevin Campbell, PE, LEED AP, President and CEO of Barry Isett & Associates.
According to Campbell, “Isett associates are a strong, talented team of professionals who contribute to a healthy work environment. Our associates collaborate as a team, support one another, and focus on continual improvement. We are very proud of the resiliency of our team as well as our robust recruitment and retention.”
