Many companies across the Philadelphia region are working harder than ever to serve their employees and customers through this difficult period. If you know of one that stands out, consider nominating it for the 2021 Philadelphia Top Workplaces awards.

Any organization with 50 or more employees in the Delaware Valley is eligible for consideration, whether public, private, nonprofit, government, or even schools. Any type of employer is welcomed to enter, and it’s free.

Workplaces are evaluated by their employees using a 24-question survey conducted by Energage, an Exton-based firm. To nominate an organization, go to or call 484-323-6270. Nominations will be accepted through Jan. 15, 2021.

Winning companies will be featured in a special edition of The Inquirer in 2021 and online at

“The Top Workplaces program can be that positive outcome your company can rally around in the coming months to celebrate leadership and the importance of maintaining an employee-focused culture, even during challenging times,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO.
