NY State SHRM, Best Companies Group Name Transfinder a Best Company to Work for in NYS

SCHENECTADY, NY (March 24, 2023) ­- The New York State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management, Best Companies Group and Rochester Business Journal have named Transfinder Corp. as one of the Best Companies to Work for in New York.

Transfinder, based in Schenectady, develops transportation management software and serves more than 2,300 school districts in North America.

In a companywide note announcing the award to his team, Transfinder President and CEO Antonio Civitella said:

“Winning these awards never gets old and I never take them for granted,” Civitella said. “I appreciate each and every one of you. The work we do is important, it’s meaningful and I believe saving lives plays a big role in preparing the next generation. With 1 out of 3.5 students in North America taking a bus routed by Transfinder, you know we have to be routing buses taken by some future presidents, judges, doctors, researchers, engineers and, yes, future Transfinder team members! Our work impacts so many people across the country and locally too! Congratulations, everyone! It’s because of you and how you feel about Transfinder that makes us one of the Best Companies to Work for in New York State.”

Best Companies to Work for in New York identifies, recognizes and honors the best places of employment in New York in three categories: small companies (15-99 employees), medium companies (100-249 employees) and large companies (250 or more employees). To be considered, companies must have at least 15 full-time or part-time employees working in New York; be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity; be a publicly or privately held business; have a facility in the state of New York and be in business a minimum of one year.

Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.

There were two parts used to determine the rankings. The first consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices and demographics, worth approximately 25 percent of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience, which consisted of 75 percent of the total. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings.

“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 winners will be honored April 19 at a celebration at the Hilton Albany, 40 Lodge Street in Albany.
