Andesa Services, a leading provider of comprehensive, integrated policy administration, plan administration and support solutions for life insurance and annuity carriers and producers, is pleased to announced that it has been named one of the Best Places to Work in PA for 2013.
Best Places to Work in PA, 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.
Andesa Services was placed at #71 in the overall ranking, which was unveiled at the Best Places to Work in PA awards banquet on Thursday, December 5 in Lancaster, Pa.
This Best Places to Work in PA 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: 25 to 249 employees, and 250 or more employees.
“This recognition is a testimony to our commitment to the vision of our founder John Walker,” said Ron Scheese, CEO of Andesa Services. “That vision states that Andesa exists to provide an ethical environment in which employees can fully develop and apply their business skills, in order to benefit the employee, the client and the shareholder. This honor will continue to challenge Andesa going forward to maintain the high standard we’ve established. We take great pride in our team at Andesa and thank them for voting us Best Places to Work in PA.”

- Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business;
- Be a publicly or privately held business;
- Have a facility in Pennsylvania;
- Have at least 25 employees working in Pennsylvania;

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.
In addition to the public/private partnership, the program is supported by the following organizations: Lead Sponsor—Team Pennsylvania Foundation; Presenting Sponsor—ParenteBeard, LLC; Major Sponsors—Capital BlueCross; Comcast Business; Global HR Research; Purpose1; Ryan LLC, Saul Ewing, LLP; and Sovereign | Santander.
