Employer Testimonials

Northeastern Pennsylvania is nationally known for its readily-available, cost-competitive, and highly productive workforce. Esteemed national site selection consultant John Rhodes of Moran, Stahl & Boyer said, “It’s almost like Northeast PA defines what work ethic is. People come to work with an eagerness and a willingness to get the job done.”

Many NEPA employers agree.

 

“I can honestly say that coming back to Pennsylvania and managing a facility where the employees care about their job, have a strong feeling of ownership of their company, and the motivation level to exceed is exciting and beneficial to our facility and company. I have not encountered this work ethic in many of the locations I have managed and lived in. Northeast PA is a company’s best found option for exceeding their expectations.”

BILL WELLIVER, FACILITY MANAGER, TELERX

 

“In 1930, our grandfather Benjamin Cohen opened a small dental depot in downtown Wilkes-Barre. Since then, Benco Dental has become the nation’s largest independent dental distributor, with operations in 35 states. Key to our growth has been the excellent and dedicated team of Benco associates who deliver success, smile after smile, to thousands of dental customers every day. When we outgrew our previous facility, the quality and loyalty of our people made it an easy decision to stay and invest right here in Northeastern PA.”

CHARLES COHEN & RICHARD COHEN, PRESIDENT & SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT BENCO DENTAL SUPPLY CO., INC

 

“Our work force at the Entenmann’s Pittston DC confirms that the NEPA strong work ethic is indeed a fact and not a myth. Our employees treat the business as if they own it and pay close attention to detail to ensure that the job is done right. In addition, there is a strong sense of community within the work force that further reinforces the decision that our company made to locate their first-ever cake distribution center in this area.”

“Since relocating our US based call center to Wilkes-Barre in November of 2007, C3i has had the opportunity to recruit and train more than 175 technical people to support our pharmaceutical clients. The workforce in NEPA is very strong, and we are continually able to obtain excellent people who are qualified, professional and dedicated to quality. Our customer satisfaction scores, which are a direct evaluation of our call center personnel, average 96%.”

ROBERT JONES, CFO, C3I

 

“The workforce here is very strong. The work ethic is fantastic. We feel a lot of our success as a company is due to the fact that our associates have a genuine concern about doing a great job for our customers. That’s what makes us successful in Northeastern Pennsylvania.”
