Lancaster, PA, September 17, 2015 – For the third year in a row, Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT) has been named a Best Place to Work in PA for 2015. 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.
Jon Zuo, President of ACT, was pleased to make the announcement to the over 90 ACT employees. “This is the third time for us to receive this award. I want to congratulate everyone for this important accomplishment, and thank you for your hard work in making ACT an enjoyable and productive workplace. In particular, our thanks go to Diane Baldassarre and the members of the BPTW Committee and subcommittees for their tireless efforts in leading and coordinating the numerous projects, campaigns and events.”
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.
To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:
- 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
- Be in business a minimum of one year
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.
ACT will be recognized at the Best Places to Work in PA awards banquet on Thursday, December 3, 2015, at the Lancaster County Convention Center in Lancaster, PA, receiving a ranking of #66 for 2015.
