Azzur Labs Celebrates 2nd Year as a Best Place to Work in Pennsylvania

[September 18, 2018 - Lehigh Valley, PA] For the second consecutive year, Azzur Labs has been named one of the Best Places to Work in PA. The 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.  
 
“At Azzur Labs, we strive to foster a unified culture and promote a process for cooperation, collaboration, sharing of information, and mutual teamwork,” said Kym Faylor, President, Azzur Labs. “We believe that each colleague should have the opportunity to excel and advance, and we acknowledge and fully appreciate the commitment by our fellow colleagues. Without their dedication we would not be as successful as we are.”
 
This 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.
 
To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:
  • Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business
  • Be a publicly or privately held business
  • Have a facility in Pennsylvania
  • Have at least 15 employees working in Pennsylvania
  • Be in business a minimum of one year 

Azzur Labs provides professional analytical compliant testing and consultative services for the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and cosmetic industries with unparalleled testing and reporting services. The Best Places to Work in PA award adds to Azzur Labs’ mounting accolades, including being named an Inc.com Best Place to Work earlier this year.
 
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% 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% 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.
 
Azzur Labs will be recognized at the Best Places to Work in PA awards banquet on Thursday, November 29, 2018, at the Lancaster County Convention Center in Lancaster, PA. Rankings will be revealed at the ceremony. Tickets may be purchased online at www.CPBJ.com/events.
 
In addition to the public/private partnership, the program is supported by the following organizations: Presenting Sponsor – Highmark; Lead Sponsor—Team Pennsylvania Foundation; Major Sponsors—Bybel Rutledge, Robertson Insurance & Risk Management, Spooky Nook Meeting & Events & S&T Bank; Founding Partners—Team Pennsylvania Foundation, the Pennsylvania State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management, and the Central Penn Business Journal; Program Partners—The Department of Community and Economic Development and PA SHRM.
