Globecomm Systems... A Working Win (Award)

[SatNews] If you work in New York, it's nice to know about a Company that attracts talent due to their award-winning employment environments...

Globecomm Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: GCOM), a global provider of communications solutions and services, has been ranked 12th in the large-sized companies category as one of the best companies to work for in New York for 2011. The fourth annual statewide survey and awards program identifies and recognizes the best places of employment in the State of New York. The fourth annual program is the result of a partnership between New York State Society for Human Resource Management, the Business Council of New York and Best Companies Group, an independent company that manages Best Places to Work programs on state, regional, and national levels around the country. The 2011 Best Companies to Work for in New York is made up of 50 companies split into two groups: 27 small/medium-sized companies with 15 to 249 employees and 23 large-sized companies of 250 or more employees. Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the best employers in the Empire State. To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:
  • Have at least 15 full-time and/or part-time employees in the state of 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
  • Must have been in business for a minimum of one year
A survey was then conducted by Best Companies Group to evaluate and rank the best places of employment in New York based on employee satisfaction and engagement, as well as workplace practices and policies. Dave Hershberg, Globecomm Chairman and CEO, said: “Making Globecomm a good place to work has always been a major goal of the Company. We are very proud of our great employees and this award, placing 12th in the large company category the first time we entered.” All 50 companies were honored at the Best Companies to Work for in New York awards dinner on Thursday, May 5, 2011.
