Vigon International has been named one of the Best Places to Work in PA for 2010. The awards program notes, "This exciting initiative is dedicated to identifying and recognizing Pennsylvania’s best employers."
Of the honor, Vigon owner Steve Somers said, “This is one of the greatest moments for me not just at Vigon but in my life as it has been a dream for me to build a company with a team that feels empowered, that they can make a difference coming to work every day, to create an environment where the team members really care about their job and in turn feel rewarded for the contributions they have made and to provide a level of benefits that are considered among the best and appreciated by the team. The recognition here that we are one of the best places to work in the entire state of Pennsylvania is a tribute to the team.”
More about the program:
"The 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 ... 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. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking."
