The Albany Business Review recently honored Albany Financial Group among 48 companies in the Capital District, named the Best Places to Work. The winners represent small and large employers across many different industries. They all have one thing in common, according to the Business Review, "They've made an effort to create workplaces where employees can feel engaged and satisfied."
This is the 18th year of the Albany Business Review award, and this year, 114 companies were nominated. Winners were selected based on data collected by Quantum Workplace of Omaha, NE, which sends confidential surveys to employees.
The qualify, companies have to have enough employees return the survey, and rate the company highly enough to win in what is always a competitive field.
Albany Financial Group received the award as one of 12 small companies with between 10 and 24 employees.
“We are very proud of this award as well as all of our employees," said AFG Principal Leonard Valletta.
"When employees are happy at work they are more engaged, which ultimately benefits our clients. In a service-oriented business such as ours, fostering an atmosphere where everyone feels valued and respected in their positions is our number one priority.”
Albany Financial Group moved up two spots last year to place 13th among local Financial Planning and Wealth Management Firms, ranked according to the level of assets under management at year-end 2019. This accolade was published in the Albany Business Review as part of its 2020 Book of Lists. The survey area included firms in 11 Capital District counties.
