CDPHP Named One Of The Best Companies

ALBANY, N.Y. – CDPHP® has been named one of the top large companies to work for in New York for the fourth year in a row by the New York State Society for Human Resource Management (NYS-SHRM) and Best Companies Group. The award was based on an evaluation of the company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics, as well as a survey that measures the overall employee experience. According to NYS-SHRM, organizations recognized with this award are an example that happy employees make for good business and drive the Empire State’s economy.
“CDPHP is proud to be recognized for the fourth consecutive year as one of the Best Companies to Work for in New York,” said John D. Bennett, MD, president and CEO, CDPHP. “The hard work and dedication of our employees are the foundation of the quality and service we provide as a local, physician-guided, not-for-profit health plan.”
CDPHP will be recognized and honored at the Best Companies to Work for in New York awards dinner on Thursday, April 26, 2012, at the Albany Marriott, where final rankings of the winners will be revealed.
This statewide survey and awards program identifies, recognizes, and honors the best places of employment in New York that benefit the state's economy, its workforce and businesses. CDPHP was named one of the Best Companies to Work for in New York in the large company category (250 or more employees).
CDPHP employees enjoy comprehensive and flexible benefits including tuition reimbursement, the opportunity to participate in worksite wellness programs, local and fresh produce at its CDPHP farmers’ market, and the ability to pursue the community service activities they enjoy. In 2011, CDPHP had over 25 percent of its employee base participate in the CDPHP® Workforce Team Challenge walk/run race in May.
In addition, CDPHP® employees raised more than $35,749 for the company’s 2011 designated charity, the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Capital Region, after yearlong fundraising by employees that also included volunteering at the Albany Ronald McDonald House.
