EMPLOYEES VOTE PRIDE MOBILITY AMONG BEST PLACES TO WORK FOR 8TH CONSECUTIVE YEAR
EXETER, PA - December 15, 2010 - Pride Mobility Products recently earned the distinction of being named among the Best Places to Work in PA for the eighth consecutive year.
Pride was ranked 29th out of 50 large-size companies and holds one of the highest rankings for companies operated out of Northeast Pennsylvania. Pride received the honor at the Best Places to Work in PA awards ceremony held Tuesday, Nov. 30, 2010 at the Lancaster County Convention Center in Lancaster.
"Earning this award for the eighth consecutive year is continued acknowledgement by our employees that Pride is a rewarding place to work," said Ann Sadusky, Executive Vice President, Human Resources and Administration. "The Best Places to Work in PA nomination process is based completely on employee feedback and provides us with an excellent opportunity to assess how we are doing. This insight has allowed Pride to go well beyond the basics when it comes to employee compensation and benefits. We also have incentives including a monthly birthday luncheon with our CEO, onsite barbecues in the summer, and a comprehensive fitness and wellness initiative. In addition, the company-sponsored events that place an emphasis on employees' children, such as the children's holiday party and the employee summer picnic, are received with great enthusiasm as they provide social opportunities for employees and their families."
Scott Meuser, Chairman and CEO, expressed his gratitude for the significant role every employee plays in the company's success.
"We appreciate the confidence our employees have once again expressed in Pride's ability to deliver an exceptional work environment," Meuser said. "It's our employees' continued feedback and
belief in our company that drives our continued commitment to the development of benefits and programs that help Pride to earn the distinction of one of the Best Places to Work in PA year after year."
