The Westchester Bank has recently been honored as a 2018 Best Companies to Work for in New York State. This is the second consecutive year the Bank has been so recognized. It is also their first time as a “Top 10” Best Company in the small-sized employer category (ranking #9). These celebrated annual awards, hosted by The New York State Society for Human Resource Management, are part of a distinctive program that evaluates and ranks the best places of employment. This statewide survey and awards program identifies, recognizes and honors the best places of employment in New York whose practices benefit the State's businesses, economy and workforce.

John M. Tolomer, President and CEO of The Westchester Bank stated, “A Top 10 selection as a Best Company to Work For is a great reflection on the character and quality of people working here at the Bank. We view each team member as a valuable contributor to the Bank’s success. It’s personally rewarding to see a staff that not only enjoys what they do but also appreciates the comradery that makes the work environment that much more fulfilling. It’s a major reason we have an extremely low turnover. While management may provide tools for learning and professional growth, it’s a collective positive attitude and effort that permeates the entire organization. Our core business principle, Banking Made Personal, has remained consistent since The Westchester Bank first opened its doors. Importantly, the staff’s dedication and support of each other carries over to the customer experience. It is this customer service model of excellence, and personal caring, that really separates us from larger banking institutions.”

Mr. Tolomer continued, “Another core value is a shared culture of caring and active participation with local non-profits. While the Bank supports many local organizations in need, it’s employee volunteerism and a hands-on engagement that helps make for a better community for all moving forward,” Mr. Tolomer concluded.

The New York State Society for Human Resource Management (NYSSHRM) officially announces award recipients as part of its Best Companies to Work for in New York State awards program. Their 11th annual Best Companies to Work for in New York list is comprised of companies with operations in the state, split into three groups: small-sized employers with 15-99 employees; medium-sized employers with 100-249 employees; large-sized employers with 250+ employees. To be considered for participation, organizations had to fulfill specific registration eligibility requirements, and participate in a two-part survey of employee satisfaction and engagement, as well as workplace practices and policies.
