Rochester, N.Y. — Passero Associates has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.

Wayne Wegman, CEO of Passero Associates, said, “On behalf of the Partners, I thank all of our employees for their continued support in making Passero Associates a Top Workplace and for helping us improve, grow and serve our clients with excellence.”

John Caruso, President of Passero Associates, said, “Our commitment to providing exceptional service has created outstanding results both for our clients and for our firm. At Passero Associates, our people make the difference, and it is their dedication to partnering with our clients and creating successful projects that has driven our success, and is what makes us a Top Workplace.”

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” said Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day — the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
