PURCHASE, N.Y., July 11, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - Quorum Federal Credit Union has been named one of the Best Companies to Work For in New York for the fifth year in a row. This year, the company was ranked No. 13 among the top 32 small- and medium-sized employers in the state.
The award was granted to Quorum by the New York State Society for Human Resource Management and the Best Companies Group, an independent company managing the Best Places to Work programs on state, regional and national stages around the country.
"Our ranking as one of the best places to work in NY is a source of great pride for our team," said Glenn Shuster, Vice President of Human Resources at Quorum. "The fact that this ranking is based solely on employee feedback makes this recognition all the more relevant and rewarding. That we have been honored with this for the fifth year in a row tells me we are doing the right things by our employees and demonstrates what an engaged workforce we have."
The statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify and honor the best places of employment in New York, thereby supporting the state's economy, workforce and businesses. Created seven years ago, the annual program evaluates and ranks the best places of employment in the State based on employee satisfaction and engagement, as well as workplace practices and policies. It is unique because employees' survey responses count for 75% of the ranking formula.
