Philly.com Names Pennoni a 2017 Top Workplace
Pennoni has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by Philly.com. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection. Pennoni is ranked 14 among the 30 largest companies in the region.
The firm is not only recognized as a leader in the A/E/C industry, but also as a leader within the communities we live and work in. Through financial contributions and donation of services, Pennoni annually supports initiatives that promote a better quality of life, education, and community-goals for residents and visitors in the areas we serve. In addition, Pennoni encourages employees to volunteer within their own communities with the internal charitable initiative, PennoniGIVES.
Anthony Bartolomeo, Pennoni’s President and CEO said “We are honored to be recognized again as a ‘Top Workplace’. As an employee owned firm, our staff is fully invested in the company and their nomination of the firm is a true testament to our company culture. I am proud of my colleagues and the work environment they create here at Pennoni, and with 34 offices and counting we can look forward to more growth with a highly-engaged workforce.”
“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
