Posted on April 24, 2018


SYRACUSE, NY– CenterState CEO is pleased to announce that it is 14 among the top 27 small employers in the state, according to the New York State Society for Human Resource Management’s (NYS-SHRM) annual Best Companies to Work for in New York State awards program.

Created in 2007, this annual program evaluates and ranks the best places of employment in the State based on employee satisfaction and engagement, as well as workplace practices and policies. It is unique because employees’ survey responses count for 75% of the ranking formula.

“This type of recognition is not an individual award," said Robert Simpson, president of CenterState CEO. "Each member of our staff contributes to a culture of service and success by going above and beyond for our members and this region."

The Best Companies to Work for in New York State program is a partnership between the NYS-SHRM and Best Companies Group. The Presenting Sponsors of the 2018 awards were Bethpage Federal Credit Union and Ryan LLC; Celebration Supporting Sponsors were Anchin and Blue 449; Supporting Sponsors were National Consumer Panel, Strategic Financial Solutions, LLC and UPSCO, Inc.
