Rome-based AmeriCU Credit Union, whose network of offices serves members across Central and Northern New York, has again been named one of the Best Companies to Work for in New York State for 2018.

The Best Companies list is compiled annually by the Best Companies Group, an independent firm that conducts the surveys on a regional, state and national level. The list has been an ongoing event since 2007.

A total of 70 businesses across New York were named to the 2018 list, split into three groups, based on the number of employees and the size of the company. The 70 businesses will be printed in a publication that will be distributed to colleges, universities and human resources organizations.

The businesses will also be honored at a dinner in Albany on April 18.

AmeriCU was named to the large employer group, with more than 250 employees. AmeriCU also received the award in 2014 and 2016.

“Our commitment to providing our members with best-in-class service, top-of-the-line technological offerings, and the right financial products to help them succeed is only possible because of the dedication, engagement, knowledge and care of our outstanding employees,” said Mark Pfisterer, president and CEO of AmeriCU, in a release.

“We know how important it is to invest in employee satisfaction, training and development so that we can continue to attract and retain employees who provide excellent service and exceed our members’ expectations in every interaction.”

To be considered for the honor, organizations had to fulfill specific registration eligibility requirements, then participate in a two-part survey of employee satisfaction and engagement, as well as workplace practices and policies.

Sturges Manufacturing Co. in Utica was also named one of the Best Companies for 2018.
