Nominate your employer for Western New York’s Best Workplaces 2023 | Sponsored

Competition for hiring is tight in today’s job market, making it harder to attract and retain top talent – ​​and more critical to your success.

That’s why it’s essential to help your business stand out.

Whether you’re looking for workers in hospitality, healthcare, or another industry, potential employees often base their job search on word-of-mouth and company reputation before committing their time and talent.

Being named one of Western New York’s Best Workplaces can set your organization apart.

If you’re proud of your workplace, now’s your chance to put it in the spotlight. Top Workplaces is a program of The Buffalo News that identifies and celebrates local businesses that excel in organizational health and employee engagement.

For the second year in a row, The Buffalo News is partnering with Energize – a national employer recognition program – to rate the best local workplaces based on anonymous employee feedback surveys.

Twenty nine companies have already registered to participate in 2023. The results will be compiled and published in a widely circulated Top Workplaces publication in early 2023.

“Winning a Top Workplaces award is a badge of honor for companies, especially because it comes authentically from their employees,” says Eric Rubino, Energize CEO. “It’s something we can be proud of. In today’s market, leaders must ensure that they allow employees to have a voice and be heard. It’s primordial. Top Workplaces does it, and it pays dividends.

In addition to boosting recruitment, Top Workplaces survey results can also help companies assess the health of their organization by revealing issues and identifying opportunities for improvement. Being identified as a Best Place to Work also raises a company’s profile within the Western New York business community, creating potential new business opportunities and boosting employee morale.

“Local businesses are the fabric of our community and the foundation of our continued resurgence in Buffalo,” said Tom Wiley, publisher and president of The Buffalo News. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to give credit where credit is due and provide a platform to recognize top local businesses.”

Any organization (public, private, non-profit or government) with 35 or more employees in the Buffalo Niagara area is eligible to participate. Workplaces are rated by their employees via a short 24-question survey conducted from August to November 2022.

The deadline for nominations is September 23.
