Best Places to Work

Best Places to work in PA (since 2001)

1ST SUMMIT BANK has been named one of the Best Places to Work in PA. This is our 20th consecutive year in receiving this honor and the only company in the state to do so. This year, 1ST SUMMIT BANK ranked #20 in the medium-sized company category.  The Best Places to Work in PA is a survey and awards program dedicated to recognizing the state’s best employers and providing organizations with valuable employee feedback.

This statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Pennsylvania, benefiting the state's economy, its workforce and businesses. Employers are categorized based upon the total number of employees they have in the U.S., 15 to 99 employees, 100 to 250 employees, or more than 250 employees.

To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

  • Have at least 15 employees working in Pennsylvania;
  • Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business;
  • Be a publicly or privately held business;
  • Have a facility in Pennsylvania; and
  • Be in business a minimum of one year.

This award was given by public/private partnership of Team Pennsylvania Foundation, the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, the Central Penn Business Journal, and PA State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management.  Companies entered the two-part process to determine the 100 Best Places to Work in PA.  The first part consisted of evaluation each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophies, systems, and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience.
