(Rochester, NY – April 2, 2018)  SMP has been awarded a 2018 Top Workplaces honor by The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle. This will be the fifth year in a row that SMP has achieved this status, every year since the inception of the award. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics). The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

Delivering strategic IT to organizations in Rochester and beyond for over 20 years, SMP has always made finding, hiring and retaining the best employees in the area a top priority. We understand that an organization’s employees are the life blood of what it provides, how it connects with its customers, and the overall success of the business.

“We are honored that our employees feel SMP is a great place to work. Our philosophy is PEOPLE FIRST, and that not only means our customers and communities, but also our employees.  We believe that happy employees do great work. To that end, we strive to ensure our employees have a healthy work-life balance, are informed, feel valued, and have venues to express their ideas.  There is no “I” in team here at SMP,” comments Eric Rorapaugh, President of SMP.

“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.”

SMP is always eager to hire local and offers a great place to work for its employees.  Learn about current job openings at:
