Rochester, NY, (March 30, 2020); For the 7th consecutive year, SMP has been awarded a Top Workplaces honor by The Democrat and Chronicle. Being named a Top Workplace in 2020 is especially exciting as only 66 companies made this year’s list.

The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 drivers of engaged cultures that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few. 

“SMP’s employees are our greatest asset, and we strive to treat them as such every day. Especially in these unprecedented times with the COVID-19 situation, we are so grateful for how each and every one of our people are stepping up and getting their important work done, safely, remotely, while taking care of their personal situations.” comments Eric Rorapaugh, SMP President.  “Our People First philosophy truly rings true at this time in history. And we are so thankful our employees feel that we are staying true to this philosophy, as shown by their input on this survey. SMP would not be as successful as we are without our critical resources: our people.”

“For more than a decade, the Top Workplaces award has helped organizations stand out among their competitors to attract talent,” said Eric Rubino, CEO of Energage. “This differentiation is more important than ever in today’s tight labor market. Establishing a continuous conversation with employees so you have a deep understanding of your unique culture is proven to help achieve higher referral rates, lower employee turnover, and double the employee engagement levels. No longer is recognition simply a much-deserved cause for celebration, but it’s fast becoming mission-critical to establish a competitive advantage for recruitment and retention.”
