Great Places to Work in NY


The New York State Society for Human Resource Management (NYS-SHRM) is very pleased to announce the 60 employers that will be honored as part of its 2014 Best Companies to Work for in New York State awards.The seventh annual Best Companies to Work for in New York list is comprised of 60 companies with operations in the state, split into two groups: 32 small/medium-sized employers with 15 to 249 U.S. employees and 28 large employers with more than 250 associates. 


Created in 2007, these celebrated annual awards are part of a distinctive program that evaluates and ranks the best places of employment. This statewide survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in New York, whose practices benefit the State's businesses, economy, and workforce.To be considered for participation, organizations had to fulfill specific registration eligibility requirements, then participate in a two-part survey of employee satisfaction and engagement, as well as workplace practices and policies. Best Companies Group, an independent firm that manages Best Places to Work programs on state, regional and national levels around the world, conducted the survey process, then evaluated the results and determined the best places of employment in the Empire State.

The 2014 Best Companies to Work for in New York State Awards are presented by two major sponsors: Jackson Lewis, LLP and Capital District Physicians’ Health Plan (CDPHP®), as well as five supporting sponsors: Acorda Therapeutics; Anchin, Block and Anchin LLP; DigitasLBi; MBMS, Inc. and WellnessRebates LLC. The program is a partnership of NYS-SHRM, The Business Council of New York, Best Companies Group and Journal Multimedia Corporation. 

NYS-SHRM is an affiliate of the national Society for Human Resources Management, the world’s largest association devoted to human resources, serving the needs of and advancing the interests of the HR profession.Best Companies Group (BCG) conducts programs on national, statewide, regional, and industry stages to distinguish organizations that are superior in workplace excellence.  The purpose of BCG is to identify and recognize outstanding employers using state-of-the art surveys and technology.

On behalf of our local chapter, GVC SHRM, we would like to personally congratulate those Rochester companies on the list - we are proud to be a part of the community with you!
