East Greenbush, NY

CIS is a Top Workplace winner in the midsize company category and the overall winner in the Employee Training category.  

CIS has been named one of the “2017 Top Workplaces” by the Albany (N.Y.) Times Union for the New York Capital Region. Only 50 companies get selected for this annual award, which has categories for small, midsize, and large businesses.

“Over the past two years, we have undergone many changes to make CIS a more enjoyable place to work, all while enjoying significant growth. Together, we have created a culture of collaboration and teamwork in a more relaxed but professional environment,” said Steven J. Spano, CIS President, and Chief Operating Officer.

“This award recognizes the effectiveness of the processes we put in place,” he added. “ Our employee engagement is a force that drives real business outcomes. We strive to live our leadership principles through our daily interactions, as well as through our hiring, recognition, promotion, and execution of our performance plans. The key differentiator at CIS is our focus on employee engagement and feedback. We are committed to continually gaining employee feedback and developing our staff.”

The list of 2017 Top Workplaces is based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics LLC, a leading research firm specializing in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including alignment, execution, and connection.

“To be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health,” said Doug Claffey, Chief Executive Officer of WorkplaceDynamics. “Our research has proven that what’s most important to employees 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 to get there.”
