Ritter Insurance Marketing has once again been named one of the Best Places to Work in PA for 2018. It is Ritter’s fifth straight year on the list.
“There is one philosophy that really drives a lot of our decision making,” company president Craig Ritter said. “And that is that the best way to keep our agents happy and to keep our carrier partners happy is to have happy employees, and to be able to really invest in the development of the employees.”
The Best Places awards program, created in 2000, is one of the first statewide programs of its kind in the country. The program is a public/private partnership between Team Pennsylvania Foundation, the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, the Pennsylvania State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management, and the Central Penn Business Journal.
Ritter has landed in the top 30 for medium- and small/medium-sized companies each year since 2014, including a peak No. 7 ranking in 2015. The company ranked No. 11 in medium-sized companies in 2017.
“Being named to this list also says a lot about our employees and the passion they bring to the office every day,” Ritter said. “Cooperation among great people creates a positive atmosphere that allows us to meet and surpass our goals as a company.”
The Best Places survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Pennsylvania, who are benefiting the state’s economy and its workforce. Employers are categorized based upon the total number of employees they have in the United States, 15 to 99 employees, 100 to 250 employees, or more than 250 employees.
Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the 100 Best Places to Work in PA. The first part of this process was evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophies, systems, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25 percent of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75 percent of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process.
Ritter will be recognized at the Best Places to Work in PA awards banquet on Thursday, November 29, at the Lancaster County Convention Center in Lancaster, PA. Rankings will be revealed at the ceremony. Tickets may be purchased online at CPBJ.com/events.
