The New York State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management, Best Companies Group and Rochester Business Journal have named Urban Engineers of New York, D.P.C., as one of the Best Companies to Work for in New York. The firm was ranked #8 in the large-sized company category and was the top New York engineering firm that qualified for the program. This was the 13th year in a row that Urban was named to the list.
“We are excited to be recognized for the 13th time by the Best Companies to Work for in New York State program, and even more proud to again be highest among engineering firms in our category,” said William Thomsen, PE, the president of Urban Engineers of New York, D.P.C. “The participation and confidence of our New York employees drives us to continued success and growth. It is a priority for us that all staff believe in our firm.”
“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 awards program is a partnership between the New York State Society for Human Resource Management, the Business Council of New York, Best Companies Group and Journal Multimedia Corporation. Created in 2007, this 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.
Urban strives to provide excellent working opportunities, exceptional benefits for employees of all ages, and the appropriate setting for employees to be successful in all of their undertakings. The firm’s attention to both professional and personal life allows its staff the time to focus on those activities that are most important to them, such as having the opportunity to work on highly visible and rewarding projects.
