ESL Named One of New York State’s Best Workplaces

Rochester, NY — ESL Federal Credit Union is pleased to announce that Great Place to Work® and Fortune magazine named the locally-owned credit union one of the best workplaces in New York State, coming in at #6 on the list of 20 Best Small and Medium Workplaces in New York. The complete list of 20 Best Small and Medium Workplaces and 40 Best Large Workplaces in New York was announced earlier this morning.

This is the second time ESL has appeared on this exclusive list—one of several lists now compiled each year by Great Place to Work® and Fortune. ESL is included among several other respected New York-based large, medium, and small employers, including Wegmans, First American Equipment Finance, The Bonadio Group, and several New York City-based employers.

“We are pleased to be recognized once again as one of New York’s Best Workplaces,” said President and CEO Faheem Masood. “We are motivated by the fact that a superior experience for our customers begins by ensuring we are providing a superior experience for our employees. We are proud of the culture we have built at ESL and we have our employees to thank for it, as they are the ones living our values day-in and day-out.”

To determine the Best Workplaces in New York, Great Place to Work® surveyed more than 70,000 employees from Great Place to Work-Certified™ companies with locations in New York State and the New York City metropolitan area. Factors evaluated include how positively employees rated management transparency, professional development opportunities, meaningful work, promotion equity, and the generosity of benefit programs. ESL exceeded benchmarks for comparably-sized organizations striving to create a great workplace.
