Things here are done right and the employees are recognized for the great job they do. We wouldn’t be successful without them.”

The award was the result of a third-party survey that Bruce & Merrilees employees were asked to complete about their work experience. To be eligible for the award, the company was required to receive a high level of positive feedback from their team members. The Pittsburgh Business Times then selected winners from the pool of businesses who fit the profile.
