LANSING, Mich., Nov. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Peckham was named by Great Place to Work® as one of the best small and medium workplaces in the United States on their annual 2015 Best Small & Medium Workplaces list, published in Fortune magazine. Ranked #11 this is the first time Peckham has submitted an entry.

"We are extremely proud to be named #11 among hundreds of companies in the nation," said Scott Derthick, Vice President of Human Resources. "An award of this caliber, speaks to the amazing dedication Peckham staff pour into the mission of creating a great place to work. It is rewarding to see our high levels of employee engagement and how much fun people are actually having at work."

A normal day at Peckham might mean hearing the Michigan State University fight song over the intercom, collecting backpacks for students in need, or even learning how to snowshoe on the roof during an unexpected snow storm.  

The list has recognized companies with exceptional workplace cultures for the past eleven years. Competing against hundreds of companies across the country, Peckham participated in a rigorous selection process, including an employee survey and an in-depth questionnaire about benefits programs and company practices. Great Place to Work® evaluates each application using its unique methodology based on five dimensions of a great workplace: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.

"Peckham is built around a culture of respect, where differences are not just tolerated but celebrated," said Mitch Tomlinson, President  & CEO of Peckham. "Creating a flexible workplace and a commitment to putting people first has created an inclusive environment where people of all abilities can do great work, and take pride in it."
