Twenty-two companies have been named to Plastics News‘ ninth annual Best Places to Work list.

The rankings will be announced at an awards ceremony during PN‘s Executive Forum on March 23 in Naples, Fla.

Profiles of all Best Places companies will be featured in the April 25 issue of PN.

The 2022 list separates processors and suppliers. For a company to be considered eligible, it must have a facility in the United States or Canada with a minimum of 15 employees, be in business for at least one year and derive at least 50 percent of revenue from plastics-related operations.

Company workplace policies and practices, as well as an internal employee engagement and satisfaction survey, are taken into consideration for the process. The annual survey and awards program is managed by Best Companies Group, a Harrisburg, Pa.-based research firm that has spent more than a decade administrating data and identifying exceptional places to work.
