Gettysburg College: a fit-friendly, great place to work

For the ninth straight year, Gettysburg College was ranked as one of the "Best Places to Work in PA" by a group of independent agencies in Pennsylvania.

The college ranked 30th among the top 35 companies and institutions with 251 or more employees.

Annually since 2000, one hundred companies and institutions have been honored for their commitment to benefiting the state's economy, workforce and businesses. The award program is a partnership of the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, the Team Pennsylvania Foundation, Central Penn Business Journal, Best Companies Group and the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry.

To be eligible, companies and institutions can be for-profit or not-for-profit, publicly or privately held, must have a facility in Pennsylvania, employ at least 25, and be in good standing with commonwealth agencies. Scoring and ranking are determined by assessments of participants' policies, practices, philosophy, demographics, and employee satisfaction.
