Auto/Mate Honored in the Business Review's

Best Places to Work


Clifton Park, NY (November 29, 2010)Auto/Mate Dealership Systems,

(, announced today that the Business Review has named the company one of the 2010 Best Places to Work in the Capital Region.   The award recognizes the company’s achievements in creating a positive work environment that attracts and retains employees through a combination of benefits, working conditions and company culture.

The Clifton Park, NY-based Auto/Mate was one of the 200 companies to be nominated, making the top 30 list based on the strength of its employee evaluations.

“This is a group win for us and clearly illustrates how well all our employees work as a team. I am very proud of them.  Auto/Mate has some of the smartest employees I know. We are a group of entrepreneur-minded individuals that works hard but likes to have fun doing it. As we don’t have any long-term contracts with our customers we have to earn our stripes each and every month. We have created a culture where each individual team member strives every day to do just that,” commented Mike Esposito, CEO and president of Auto/Mate.

“We were proud to be nominated for the award program,” said David Druzynski, Auto/Mate Recruiter, “because we think our culture is unique. Not only do we emphasize the customer experience, but we continually look for ways to improve the employee experience.  Our company’s success is directly attributed to the dedication and commitment of our team.  Our management team listens and communicates with our employees and treats them very well.  We set clear expectations and make sure that it is a fun and rewarding experience working for Auto/Mate. The company is very proud of its employees, and we’re proud to be a winner of this award.”

The top companies will be profiled in a special supplement of The Business Review issued on December 4 and will be honored at a celebration on December 3 at the Crowne Plaza in Albany.

Companies were evaluated on an objective 40-question survey completed by employees of participating companies. Employees scored their respective companies on a six-point scale. The results were compiled and analyzed by The Business Review’s research partner, Quantum Workplace.

The survey takes the following strategic measures into account:

  • Team effectiveness
  • Retention
  • Employee alignment with company goals
  • Trust with co-workers
  • Individual contribution
  • Manager effectiveness
  • Trust in senior leaders
  • Feeling valued
  • Work engagement
  • People practices

Auto/Mate is continuing to grow and constantly looking for additional employees  in development and support.  For more information contact: David Druzynski at 877-340-2677.
