CLIFTON PARK, N.Y. – Auto/Mate Dealership Systems ( announced today they were named one of the “Best Places to Work” in New York State’s Capital region by The Business Review journal. It is the second year in a row that Auto/Mate has received the honor.

“One of the best ways to create a successful business is to create a positive work environment for its employees,” said Mike Esposito, President and CEO of Auto/Mate. “When a person enjoys coming to work every day and has passion for what they do, their enthusiasm gets paid forward into the quality of the products and customer service.”

Every year The Business Review journal hands out the “Best Places to Work” award to just 30 companies in the upstate New York region. Company evaluations were conducted using an objective, anonymous 40-question survey completed by employees. The results were compiled and analyzed by The Business Review’s research partner, Quantum Workplace.

The survey ranks companies on the following criteria: team effectiveness, retention, employee alignment with company goals, trust with co-workers, individual contribution, manager effectiveness, trust in senior leaders, feeling valued, work engagement and people practices.

The top companies will be profiled in a special supplement of The Business Review to be issued on December 2nd. A celebratory luncheon will also be held to honor award recipients on December 2nd at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Albany.
