The Best Places to Work in Pa. group has ranked Sheetz Inc. as No. 20 on the list of Top 50 large companies in 2008. The Altoona, Pa.-based Sheetz has now been on the list for seven consecutive years.
“It is truly an honor to be named one of the best employers in our home state of Pennsylvania,” said Stephanie Doliveira, vice president of human resources at Sheetz. “It’s extra special because it comes from our employees. We have great people who make Sheetz a great place to work. I thank them for all that they do to help us deliver quality convenience to our busy customers every day.”
The Best Places to Work in PA program helps companies improve their workplace practices to attract and retain the best employees possible, all an effort to help the companies maintain a successful business.
The program is open to all publicly or privately held organizations, whether for-profit or nonprofit. To quality for the list, the companies must have a facility in Pennsylvania, employ at least 25 people in the state and be in good standing with all Commonwealth agencies under the governor’s jurisdiction.
The assessment process is comprised of a two-part survey in which employees are asked to evaluate their workplace experience and the employer is asked to describe its company benefits, policies and practices along with other information.
It provides the Best Companies group with in-depth analysis of the strengths and opportunities that exist to build a better workplace.
“One of our main objectives is to ensure our people to have a good working environment,” Doliveira said. “We want our employees to enjoy coming to work. We are always exploring ways to improve the experience for both our customers and our employees. It’s great to know that they are as happy with us as we are with them.”
