PURCHASE, NY – Quorum Federal Credit Union (QFCU) has been named one of the Best Companies to Work for in New York for the second year in a row – jumping nine places from the previous year’s honor. This year, the company was ranked No. 10 in the “Companies with less than 250 Employees” group.
The award was granted to QFCU 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. 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.
“This is the second year we have made this very prestigious list,” said Glenn Shuster, Vice President of Human Resources at Quorum. “We are committed to maintaining a work environment that attracts, retains, and rewards the best and brightest people. We are always focused on improving our processes, enhancing our service, and adding value to the company. This recognition again reflects the commitment, passion and teamwork of all our employees at Quorum to make life easier for our members and each other.”
Fifty companies were named to the Best Companies to Work For in New York list. The companies were assessed on the basis of their workplace policies, practices, philosophies, systems and demographics. Employees within nominated companies were also asked to complete surveys used to measure individual experience.
All 50 companies were recognized and their rankings revealed at the Best Companies to Work for in New York awards dinner on Thursday, May 5, 2011, at the Albany Marriott.
