SMP Named Six Time Winner Rochester Top Workplace Award

Rochester, NY – (March 4, 2019) — SMP, best-in-class IT provider serving the Northeast US, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a Rochester Top Workplaces 2019 honor by The Democrat and Chronicle. An achievement SMP has enjoyed 6 years in a row, every year the award has been given out.

The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.  

“At SMP we put people first and that starts with our employees.  Our Vision says it all: “SMP will focus on being a GREAT PLACE TO work, while achieving profitable growth by staying true to our culture.” states Eric Rorapaugh, SMP President. “Being voted a Rochester Top Workplace for the sixth year in a row tells us that we are living our Vision and that our employees feel valued day in and day out.  SMP would not be where we are now without our dedicated and talented people.”

“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement. Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy. It’s an achievement organization have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal.”
