Peckham Named on Great Place to Work® 2015 Best Small & Medium Workplaces List

Employee trust in the workplace is the leading factor for great workplaces



LANSING, MI- 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 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 work and dedication Peckham staff pour into the mission of creating a great place to work.”

In compiling the list, Great Place to Work® has found that employees believe they work for great organizations when they consistently trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do and enjoy the people they work with.


“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.”


Peckham offers fair compensation, paid vacations, tuition reimbursements, 401(a) and other compensations programs for their employees.
