Digitas Health LifeBrands, a member of the Publicis Healthcare Communications Group, was named to Central Pennsylvania Business Journal’s Best Places to Work 2015 list. In addition to having the honor announced in the publication, Digitas Health joined other honorees at a special ceremony at the Lancaster County Convention Center on December 3.
To make this year’s list, the Digitas Health employees participated in a survey provided by the Best Companies Group, an independent research firm specializing in identifying and recognizing great places to work, to evaluate their workplace based on corporate culture and communications, role satisfaction, work environment, training and development, and leadership and planning.
Digitas Health’s recognition was based on excellence in employee culture including collegial atmosphere, opportunities for career development, frequent employee gatherings for staff in spaces adorned with their original artwork, and high marks for work/life balance. Another key point of distinction revealed by employees through the survey was Digitas Health’s corporate leadership, evidenced by its hosting of PhillyCHI’s UX Show & Tell, DesignPhiladelphia, and EducationWorks events, and production of m.15 Mobile Innovation Summit, its annual proprietary thought leadership conference.
“Our employees are the essential resource we have in providing quality services to our clients, so we are very excited and appreciate fully the value of being recognized as one of the best places to work in Pennsylvania,” said Marion Chaplick, Digitas Health LifeBrands’ executive VP, general manager in Philadelphia. “Beyond the pride this brings us, as a leading employer in the region, we strive to create an invigorating place to work and ensure our staff has the support and environment in which they will thrive.”
