Three Capital Region companies recognized among best workplaces in country
Despite workers leaving their jobs in droves since 2020, three local companies are leading the way in keeping employees happy, fulfilled and satisfied.
The Center for Internet Security, Sunmark Credit Union and Warren, Washington and Albany Counties ARC have all been recognized among the 2022 Top Workplaces USA for their commitment to their staff, their clients, and their communities.
The award honors companies that make the world a better place to work together, by prioritizing a people-centered culture, and giving employees a voice. The award is based solely on feedback from employee surveys.
CIS is a nonprofit cybersecurity leader, committed to keeping the connected world safer.
In addition to competitive pay and benefits, CIS employees get 40 hours of paid time off each year to volunteer in their communities, as well as ongoing professional and personal development opportunities.
After going fully remote in 2020, staff stays connected through online team building activities, including aromatherapy, charcuterie board making, bingo, and Lego building. Each employee is also given a weekly wellness hour to use any way they choose. CIS is hiring.
A Sunmark Credit Union spokesman says the company practices integrity, accountability, and kindness. Sunmark surveys employees to get a real-time understanding of its culture, employee satisfaction and where to improve. Sunmark recently rolled out Sunmark University to provide comprehensive learning and development opportunities for all staff.
WWAARC says its employees are its pillars as they provide around the clock care for the nearly 1,000 people with disabilities they support.
