    The eighth annual Best Companies to Work for in New York list is comprised of 65 companies with operations in the state, split into two groups: 31 small/medium-sized employers with 15 to 249 U.S. employees and 34 large employers with more than 250 associates. [A list of honorees is provided at the end of this release.]

    All 65 winning organizations will be honored at a public awards dinner to be held at the Albany Marriott on Tuesday, April 21, 2015, from 5:45 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. During the event, the companies will learn where they rank among the competitors in their size category.

    In addition, a special publication will profile all 65 winning organizations and their unique employment perks. It will be distributed at the event and sent to higher education institutions, as well as to thousands of human resources professionals and organizations across New York State.

    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 2015 Best Companies to Work for in New York State Awards are presented by major sponsor: Ryan, as well as five supporting sponsors: District Physicians’ Health Plan, Inc. (CDPHP®), Broadridge Financial Solutions and Anchin, Block & Anchin LLP. 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.
