Times Union Names Auto/Mate a Winner of the New York Capital Region 2017 Top Workplaces Award
Auto/Mate Grabs Top Spot in Medium-Sized Companies Category
Albany, NY – April 10th, 2017 – Auto/Mate Dealership Systems announced today that it has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by the Times Union. Auto/Mate ranked as the #1 Top Workplace in the medium-sized companies category, beating out 19 other companies in the New York Capital Region for the top spot. This is the sixth consecutive year that Auto/Mate has received a Top Workplaces award.
“I would like to sincerely thank our employees for voting us as a Top Workplace; this is truly incredible and I am excited and humbled,” said Mike Esposito, President and CEO of Auto/Mate. “Many business associates are skeptical when I say we put our employees first, before our customers and our shareholders, but this award proves that when you put employees first they will work hard and help make your company successful.”
The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.
“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. Often times, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together.” Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
