The Times Union Names Auto/Mate a Winner of the Albany 2018 Top Workplaces Award and Special Award for Managers

Albany, NY – April 16, 2018​ – Auto/Mate Dealership Systems announced today that it has been awarded a 2018 Top Workplaces honor by the Times Union. Auto/Mate ranked as a Top Workplace in the midsize category, and also took home a Special Award for Managers. This is the seventh consecutive year that Auto/Mate has received a Top Workplaces honor, and the first time it has been recognized with the Special Award for Managers.


“The link between happy employees, happy customers and healthy organizational growth is very strong, which is why our managers’ top priorities include creating a great place to work,” said Mike Esposito, president and CEO of Auto/Mate. “I would like to send out a huge Mahalo to each and every one of our employees.”


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


“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.”


The Special Award for Managers is presented to the company that received the highest scores from employee responses to specific, individual survey statements. Employees rated statements on a scale from “strongly agree” to “strongly disagree.” For the Manager’s award, the statements included:


  • My manager helps me learn and grow
  • My manager makes it easier to do my job well
  • My manager cares about my concerns


Auto/Mate was the only company to receive the Special Award for Managers, ranking the highest among all 50 companies and organizations in three size categories that were honored with Top Workplaces awards.


Auto/Mate’s exceptional benefits for its employees include:

  • Company events and outings
  • Involvement in and sponsorship of community events
  • Company sponsored wellness program with hosted speakers
  • Body/Shop employee gym
  • Employee discounts
  • Paid volunteer day
  • Company-wide contests and challenges
  • Food trucks and hosted breakfasts and lunches on special occasions


Auto/Mate has also been named a Best Places to Work in New York’s Capital Region by the Albany Business Review journal for eight years running; and has been honored multiple times as a Highest Rated and Top Rated DMS in the DrivingSales Dealer Satisfaction Awards.
