Milton Hershey School Named One of the 2018 Best Places to Work in PA
For the fourth consecutive year, Milton Hershey School has been named one of the Best Places to Work in PA. The award recognizes companies across the state based on workplace policies, practices, philosophies, systems and demographics.
“It is a tremendous honor to be named among the best places to work in the state,” said MHS President Pete Gurt ’85. “By voting MHS a Best Place to Work, our employees recognize the fulfilling and rewarding role they have as positive influences in our students’ lives each day. As we grow to serve more children from lower income families, I welcome other service-minded men and women to discover a career at MHS that will not only change someone else’s life, but also their own.”
Milton Hershey School is located in Hershey, Pa. Established in 1909, the school is a home and school to more than 2,000 children from families of lower income. MHS and its dedicated staff offer a top-notch education and positive home life to students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade—at no cost to their families—in order to nurture and support them in leading fulfilling and productive lives that break the cycle of generational poverty.
In order to provide opportunities to more children, the school continues to grow its student body and is looking for caring individuals who want to step up and make a positive impact on the lives of others.
The awards program is a public/private partnership between Team Pennsylvania Foundation, the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, the Pennsylvania State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management, and the Central Penn Business Journal.
MHS will be recognized at the Best Places to Work in PA awards banquet on Thursday, November 29 at the Lancaster County Convention Center in Lancaster, Pa.
