Harrisburg, PA – Registration for the 2018 Best Places to Work in Pennsylvania Program is now open. Nominations for these valuable awards are now being accepted online at until June 29th, 2018. Now in its 19th year, this program awards small/medium-sized and large-sized businesses from across the commonwealth.

Although it is a prestigious honor to make the list, all companies who participate gain additional benefits from their participation.

Every year many participants find that insight from these reports is as valuable as making the list. Additionally, companies that make the list improve their visibility and appeal to job seekers from around the globe by carrying a trusted stamp of approval of being a “Best Places to Work in PA” company.
