Albany, N.Y. – November 7th, 2016 – Auto/Mate Dealership Systems has been recognized as one of the thirty “Best Places to Work” in New York State’s Capital region by the Albany Business Review. It is the seventh straight year that Auto/Mate has won the award. Auto/Mate was ranked in the medium-large category, defined as companies with 50 to 149 employees.
“The first few years we won this award we ranked in the small-business category, so it’s nice to know that as our company grows the focus is still where it needs to be, which is on employee satisfaction,” said Mike Esposito, President and CEO of Auto/Mate Dealership Systems. “If you take care of your employees, they will take care of your customers.”
The Albany Business Review honors just 36 companies every year with the “Best Places to Work” distinction. The business journal partners with Quantum Workplace, a Nebraska based research firm, to conduct anonymous employee engagement surveys. The companies with the highest scores are ranked on team effectiveness, retention, employee alignment with company goals, trust with co-workers, individual contribution, manager effectiveness, trust in senior leaders, feeling valued, work engagement and people practices.
“A great company culture doesn’t happen by accident; we put a lot of time and effort into creating a special environment that promotes growth, communication and fun,” said David Druzynski, Director of Human Resources for Auto/Mate. “The effort is definitely worth it as we attract highly-qualified job candidates and our employee turnover rate is very low.”
Auto/Mate offers the following perks to its employees:
- The Body/Shop: in office gym
- Tuition reimbursement
- Casual dress work environment
- Paid time off for volunteering
- Wellness program
- Discounted home, auto and pet insurance; discounted cell phone plans
