2020 Best Companies Winners

    On August 5, 2020, 75 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 13th annual awards event, a virtual celebration during which their ranks were revealed.

    We are honored to recognize 75 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. What is truly unique about our program is that the winners are primarily determined by their employee’s input!” 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 75 companies in a wide array of industries split into three groups based on size: small-sized employers with 15-99 U.S. employees, medium-sized employers with 100-249 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 and Best Companies Group. The Presenting Sponsors of the 2020 awards were Bethpage Federal Credit Union and Ryan LLC; the Major sponsor was Nascentia Health; Supporting Sponsors were Brio Benefits Consulting, National Consumer Panel and RBT CPAs, LLP.
