Nomination deadline extended for Rochester Top Workplaces 2023

There is still time to nominate your favorite employer for a 10th Annual Democrat & Chronicle Top Workplaces Award 2023. The annual gala to recognize the winners and distribute awards will be held in the spring.

Any Rochester area organization with 35 or more employees (public, private, non-profit or government) is eligible to participate.

Though anyone can nominate a company, recipients of the recognizable gold banner are exclusively chosen through survey and evaluation by their own workforce. The organizations with the highest of ratings win.

In this competitive labor market, candidates can be selective. They have needs, and want to know that their next employer values its workers — those who deliver essential services to make the company successful.

The Top Workplaces gold badge signifies that an employer goes above and beyond for its workers and their employees think so, too.
