This award culminates twenty-one proud years of support for our Guard and Reserve personnel. Employers can only be nominated by Guard and Reserve employees or a family member acting on their behalf. In 2018, Greencastle was humbled to receive a nomination by Major Troy Beane of the Pennsylvania National Guard, who is currently deployed to the middle east.

Greencastle Selected as one of Philadelphia’s Best Places to Work for 2018!
Each year, the Business Journal teams with Quantum Workplace to find the very best workplaces in the Philadelphia region. The contest is based on employee surveys and contains various levels of safeguards to protect the integrity of the process.
Here’s how Quantum describes the process:
“While many awards programs remain subjective, ours has been scientific since day one. In fact, we were the first to utilize a full-blown employee engagement survey as the sole scoring mechanism. This is still the case today. Our survey was developed by some of the most brilliant minds in survey research methodology and organizational psychology, and we update it regularly to make sure it stays relevant.”
For 2018, there were a record number of applications for Best Places to Work and every company included here had to reach a statistical benchmark to be included. It’s not an easy benchmark to meet.
