Ten companies based in Western Pennsylvania were recognized among this year's ranking of the state's 100 Best Places to Work.
The list, compiled by Team Pennsylvania Foundation, the state Department of Community and Economic Development and Central Penn Business Journal, ranks companies based on surveys of employers and their employees. It groups companies as either a small employer, with 25 to 249 workers, or a large employer, with 250 or more workers.
In the large employer category, Somerset Trust Co. was ranked No. 2, and Phoenix Rehabilitation and Health Services Inc., Indiana, came in at No. 22.
Among small employers, eight Western Pennsylvania companies made the list. They were:
• No. 7 Wessel & Co., Johnstown.
• No. 8 Horovitz, Rudoy & Roteman LLC, Downtown.
• No. 14 ABG Capital, Robinson.
• No. 20 1st Summit Bank, Johnstown.
• No. 22 Sierra w/o Wires Inc., Robinson.
• No. 33 Bethany Hospice Services of Western Pennsylvania LLC, Green Tree.
• No. 40 KU Resources Inc., Duquesne.
• No. 63 SeniorLife Johnstown.
This year's awards were presented at a ceremony in Lancaster.
“Team Pennsylvania Foundation is proud to sponsor a program like the Best Places to Work in Pennsylvania competition as we celebrate and honor companies that create a positive work environment for its employees,” said Matt Zieger, CEO of the Harrisburg nonprofit economic development organization.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
