Clifton Park, N.Y. (PRWEB) May 01, 2013
Annese & Associates, Inc. is thrilled to announce its final ranking as the #3 Best Company to Work For in New York State for 2013 in the small to medium sized business category. Annese was among 30 other companies who learned of their ranking at last night’s awards dinner and ceremony at the Albany Marriott.
Annese is a third time honoree on the list which was initiated in 2007 by Best Companies Group. In 2008, the company placed 7th before moving up to the 2nd place seat in 2009.
This celebrated annual award identifies the best places of employment based on a two-part survey process evaluating employee satisfaction as well as workplace practices and policies.
Over 85% of Annese employees responded to the survey and rated the company the highest in relation to Employee Engagement, Leadership and Planning, Corporate Culture and Communications, Relationship with Supervisor, Work Environment, Role Satisfaction, Pay and Benefits, and Training and Development. The combined responses resulted in an overall median score of 96%.
Francine Annese Apy, Co-Owner and VP of Human Resources at Annese, was among those present at last night’s ceremony and proudly reflects on this rewarding company achievement.
“I’m honored that Annese & Associates, Inc. has remained in the top three Best Companies to Work For in NYS! This year, our overall score was 96% out of 100% and we are very proud of that. We have participated in this survey three times since its inception six years ago. Our employee feedback is very valuable to us as a company and especially within the HR Department. This feedback becomes our HR scorecard which keeps us focused on maintaining our reputation as an Employer of Choice. Our core philosophy remains simple; we take care of our people by providing a great work environment and a rich culture of integrity. If we do right by our people, we know that they will, in turn, extend that same individual level of relationship and care to our customers. It’s a win/win!”
Annese strives to remain an Employer of Choice by placing a strong emphasis on professional development, encouraging employees to grow in their positions and reach their highest potential, both personally and professionally. The 43 year old family owned and operated organization is renowned for its personal approach to business, employee recognition programs, comprehensive benefits package, and commitment to corporate wellness and work-life balance.
Annese President & CEO, Ray Apy, celebrates the company’s win. “I am so proud of the hard work of the Annese team, their dedication to our clients, and their loyalty to the company. We have a unique culture where people truly care about one another and where the business is set up to care for its own with unusually strong benefits and compensation. Our score of 96% speaks volumes to this. According to the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM) in an employee satisfaction report issued for 2011, only 42% of US employees were ‘very satisfied’ in their current jobs. I sleep like a baby at night knowing we are doing the right thing as an employer, and I know this translates directly into our very high client satisfaction ratings.”
