NY State SHRM, Best Companies Group and Rochester Business Journal Announce 2023 Best Companies to Work for in New York

March 6, 2023 — The New York State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management, Best Companies Group and Rochester Business Journal have named Precision Optical Technologies, Inc. as one of the Best Companies to Work for in New York.

Best Companies to Work for in New York identifies, recognizes and honors the best places of employment in New York in three categories: small companies (15-99 employees), medium companies (100-249 employees) and large companies (250 or more employees). To be considered, companies must have at least 15 full-time or part-time employees working in New York; be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity; be a publicly or privately held business; have a facility in the state of New York and be in business a minimum of one year.

Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.

There were two parts used to determine the rankings. The first consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices and demographics, worth approximately 25 percent of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience, which consisted of 75 percent of the total. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings.

A listing of winners is below. The final rankings will be announced at the April 19 awards ceremony. 

The 2023 Best Companies to Work for in New York know that the people in their organizations are the key to their success. The companies foster a positive environment for innovative teams to thrive,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, managing director of BridgeTower Media. “We are pleased to join our partners, the New York State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management and the Best Companies Group, in honoring these businesses.”

The winners will be honored April 19 at a celebration at the Hilton Albany, 40 Lodge Street in Albany. Registration and networking begin at 5:30 p.m. followed by dinner and the awards ceremony at 6:30 p.m. 

Attendance is limited for this event. Honorees and sponsors get the first chance to secure tables. Sponsorship includes a table for guests, multimedia marketing and an ad in the awards publication, logo usage and more.
