    What is Best Companies to Work for in New York?

    Best Companies to Work for in New York State is a survey competition to determine which participants are the best employers. The process is managed by Best Companies Group (BCG) and winners are published by New York State SHRM (NYS-SHRM).

    What is Best Companies Group (BCG)?

    Best Companies Group is an independent research firm specializing in identifying and recognizing great places to work. BCG manages programs worldwide, including in the US, Canada and the UK.

    Why participate?

    By participating, you can find out if you are one of the state’s best employers! It can also result in significant organizational benefits for entrants:

    1) Heightened Company Pride. If your company appears on the list, it could improve employee morale and retention.

    2) Public Relations and Marketing Advantage. Companies can use the distinction to enhance recruiting efforts, increase the value of general marketing and improve reputations.

    3) The Employee Feedback Report:

    Included with registration, participants will receive their Employee Feedback Report detailing the company’s employee responses. Also included are New York state employee and employer benchmarks.

    Who can participate?

    • For-profits, not-for-profits or government entities

    • Publicly or privately held businesses

    • Companies with a facility in New York

    • Companies with 15+ permanent employees working in New York

    • Companies in business a minimum of one year

    Assessment Description

    The process includes two surveys to gather detailed data about each participating company. BCG conducts the surveys, analyzes the data and determines the winners and rankings.

    Part I – Employer Benefits & Policies Questionnaire: The employer completes an online survey, detailing company policies, practices, benefits and demographics.

    Part II – Employee Engagement & Satisfaction Survey: Employees complete a survey of in-depth statements using a scale of five points ranging from “Agree Strongly” to “Disagree Strongly.” The survey also includes seven demographic and two open-ended questions. It can be given online or by paper, if a full company employee email list is not available. 

    Announcing & Recognizing the Winners!

    To be considered for participation, organizations have 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, then evaluated the results and determined the best places of employment in the Empire State.

    Each company is notified of their status prior to the release of the winner rankings.  Non-winning companies are not publicly revealed.

    This program is a partnership of New York State SHRM, The Business Council of New York, Best Companies Group and Journal Multimedia Corporation.
