The list found that of the nearly 2000 employees surveyed, 91 percent say KPMG is a great workplace, with top rankings from employees in the categories of great challenges (96%), atmosphere (96%), rewards (94%), pride (96%), communication (95%) and great bosses (95%).
Rankings were based on employee surveys and among the top organizations:
“This recognition shows that, when you serve the best companies in the world and focus on a culture of innovation and inclusiveness, and provide people with opportunities for growth and advancement, it pays off. I’m proud and gratified that their responses have placed us so high on this prestigious list,” said Bob Garrett, KPMG New York office managing partner.
New York's leading employers also offer employees ways to balance high-power schedules and offset the city's long commute times. Almost three quarters of the Best Workplaces in New York offer flexible scheduling, and even more have telecommuting policies.
"The New York metropolitan area is known for its talented workforce and competitive spirit. These Best Workplaces are proving that to get ahead in today's market, companies need to foster a friendly, team atmosphere. A high-performance culture doesn't mean cutthroat -- it means cooperation," said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work.
Great Place to Work surveyed nearly 137,000 employees from Great Place to Work-Certified(TM) organizations with locations in New York State and the New York City metropolitan area. We analyzed how positively employees rated their organizations on more than 50 different metrics, including management transparency, professional development, meaningful work, promotion equity and the generosity of benefit programs. We also analyzed demographic patterns to ensure they were creating great workplaces for all employees, regardless of who they are or what they do for the organization. All surveys were anonymous. Results were normalized for organizations' size and complexity and had at least a 95% confidence level with a 5% margin of error.
