Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania honored as a ‘Best Place to Work in Western Pennsylvania’ by Pittsburgh Business Times

Monday, November 12, 2018

The Pittsburgh Business Times recently recognized Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania as one of the “2018 Best Places to Work in Western Pennsylvania,” one of just 65 companies across the region to receive the honor.

Columbia Gas, with nearly 500 employees in the region, was a winner in the extra-large category, which included companies with more than 150 employees.  The company was selected based on the results of a confidential, online survey given to western Pennsylvania employees earlier this year that asked them to rate the company in a number of areas, including job and salary satisfaction, and management.

“Columbia Gas is a great place to work, grow and build a career, and we are proud to be named a Best Place to Work by our employees,” said Michael Huwar, president and chief operating officer of Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania. “We strive to foster an inclusive workplace that embraces diversity and supports employees’ growth and development. Our commitment to training and continuous improvement helps employees provide safe and reliable natural gas service to our customers.”

Each year, the Pittsburgh Business Times encourages companies to participate in the Best Places to Work program. Companies must have at least 10 employees working in western Pennsylvania, and the companies are not required to be headquartered in the region. However, only those employees working in the Pittsburgh region are considered for the survey and its results.

Columbia Gas offers career opportunities across a range of areas, including skilled trades, engineering, corporate and customer support. For more information about exploring a career with Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania, visit
