ALBANY, N.Y. — Auto/Mate Dealership Systems has been named one of the “Best Places to Work” in New York’s Capital Region by the Albany Business Review. Auto/Mate is one of 12 companies honored in the “large companies” category with more than 150 employees. This is the ninth consecutive year that Auto/Mate has received the award.

“After nine years, we don’t take this award for granted. We are dedicated to creating an environment where people enjoy coming to work every day,” said Mike Esposito, president and CEO of Auto/Mate. “Our philosophy is to focus on employee satisfaction first, because if your employees are happy, they will keep your customers happy.”

Auto/Mate provides world-class software and support to auto dealerships nationwide. Employees receive many perks, including an onsite gym, tuition reimbursement, casual dress environment, wellness program, employee discount programs, and paid time off for volunteering. Additionally, Auto/Mate frequently hosts events designed for fun, including Hawaiian Day, happy hours, Bagel Thursdays and visits from cupcake and ice cream trucks.

A celebratory luncheon will be held to honor the “Best Places to Work” award recipients in December. Albany Business Review partners with Quantum Workplace, a Nebraska-based research firm, to conduct anonymous employee surveys. The companies with the highest scores are recognized and ranked on the following: 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.
