What makes a top workplace ?

Sure, a solid benefits package is a must, but company atmosphere, meaningful work, a leadership culture, a coworker community, and other aspects get factored into the overall employee experience.

If you work somewhere that you think is a top workplace, now's the time to tell the world about it: Nominations are open for the Inquirer's annual Top Workplaces survey, presented by The Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia, and any organization (public, private, nonprofit or government) with 50 or more employees in the Philadelphia region can participate.

Exton-based Energage, which conducts surveys for more than 40 major-metro newspapers, will poll workers in nominated companies in the Philadelphia area through mid-December using a 24-question survey, and will then share results with The Inquirer.

The Top Workplaces will be announced in January and celebrated during an awards program in March.

To nominate an organization, visit philly.com/nominate or call 484-323-6300.

The deadline for nominations is Oct. 19.
