Best Companies to Work for in New York

    On April 19, 2017, 70 employers from the Empire State were recognized as the Best Companies to Work for in New York for their outstanding achievements in employee engagement. They were honored at the 10th annual awards event in Albany, during which their ranks were revealed.

                   “We are honored to recognize 70 outstanding companies ranging across a variety of industries from financial and professional services, to health care, social services, not-for-profit, technology and more. Although the winners run the gamut in terms of their products and services, they all share a common thread -- a commitment to their employees,” said Lorri Zelman, event emcee and chair of the program for the New York State Society for Human Resource Management (NYS-SHRM).

    In addition to recognition at the awards event, a special publication highlighting each company’s unique employment perks is available to view online at

    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.

    The list of honorees is comprised of 70 companies in a wide array of industries split into two groups based on size: small/medium-sized employers with 15-249 U.S. employees and large employers with more than 250 U.S. employees. [A ranked list of honorees is provided at the end of this release.]

                   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 Best Companies to Work for in New York State program is a partnership between the NYS-SHRM, The Business Council of New York and Best Companies Group. The Presenting Sponsor of the 2017 awards was Bethpage Federal Credit Union; Supporting Sponsors were Anchin, Blue 449, Strategic Financial Solutions, LLC and UPSCO, Inc.
