Almacs Clinical Technologies Business Unit Again Receives `Best Places to Work in PA 2010′ Award
November 10, 2010
Almac’s Clinical Technologies business unit, a part of the Almac Group, has been named one of the Best Places to Work in PA for 2010. 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 the Team Pennsylvania Foundation, the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, and the Central Penn Business Journal.
This survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best places to be employed in Pennsylvania, benefiting the state’s economy, its workforce, and businesses.
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. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process.
Jim Murphy, President of Almac’s Clinical Technologies’ business unit, comments on receiving the award: “Almac is honored to receive the Best Places to Work in PA Award for the second year in a row. Almac’s core values are Quality, Service, Innovation, and People. Among these values, “People” is the most critical because Almac’s employees are the key to our ability to fulfill the other three core values. In recognition of this fact, Almac invests heavily in employment development and fosters a culture that creates a positive, collaborative, and productive working environment.”
Almac’s Clinical Technologies unit will be recognized at the Best Places to Work in PA evening awards ceremony on Tuesday, November 30, 2010, at the LancasterCountyConvention Center in Lancaster, PA. Rankings will be revealed at the ceremony.
