PURCHASE, NY., April 24, 2019 –
Quorum Federal Credit Union has been named one of the Best Companies to Work For in New York. 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.
“We’re thrilled to once again be acknowledged as one of the best companies to work for in New York,” said Bruno Sementilli, President and CEO at Quorum. “We know that when employees come first, they last. As a credit union, we promise to do good by and for our members, and we carry that promise through to our employees with “A Career that’s Good For You,” offering opportunity, flexibility and fun.”
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 twelve 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.
Committed to excellence and seeing its team succeed, Quorum empowers employees to realize their full potential, all while living the Credit Union’s core values: Teamwork, Agility, Accountability, Entrepreneurship, and Integrity. Tuition reimbursement and a bonus/commission plan reward all for contributing to the company’s success. A business-casual environment creates a relaxed—oftentimes lighthearted and fun—atmosphere, all the while promoting forward thinking and freedom to innovate. An open-concept workspace at company headquarters in Purchase, NY, encourages an “open-door-across-all-levels” environment, as well as frequent collaboration.
Employees often meet in the Credit Union bistro or lounges for impromptu meetings and Starbucks coffee, and stay after hours for company-sponsored teambuilding events (with proceeds helping organizations such as the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and James J. Peters VA Medical Center). President/CEO Bruno Sementilli meets regularly with staff to discuss strategic direction, and also meets individually with new employees and small groups over lunch to get to know all on a more personal level. Flexible work schedules are available, including telecommuting and a four-day work-week. Included in Quorum’s benefit package is a 401k plan (with company match up to 6 percent). A generous Health Reimbursement Account assists employees with costs associated with the company’s medical plan, like deductibles and co-insurance. Finally, as a financial institution, Quorum is able to offer great discounts to its employees, including mortgage discounts. New benefits and strategies are continually explored each day in an effort to get a little better, keeping the company among the top in its industry.
Seventy five companies were named to the Best Companies to Work For in New York list. All were recognized and their rankings revealed at the Best Companies to Work for in New York awards dinner on April, 24 2019, at the Albany Marriott.
