NEW YORK, Jan. 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Schimenti Construction Company was named one of the 2019 Best Places to Work in both New York and Connecticut by the New York State Society for Human Resource Management (NYS-SHRM) and the Hartford Business Journal. The awards program recognizes the best companies that benefit the states' economies, workforces and businesses.
As one of the leading contractors in New York and Connecticut, Schimenti works cohesively to execute top-tier results for a broad range of clients. Schimenti's experienced, diverse and collaborative group of employees is what has driven the company's success.
"We are honored to be recognized for our positive workplace environment and high-quality construction services that have helped to advance employee growth and economic progress," said Matthew Schimenti, president of Schimenti Construction Company. "As we continue executing a diverse set of projects, we remain committed to promoting employee development in order to deliver the results our clients expect."
This award follows Schimenti's recent expansion as it doubled its annual revenue over the past four years, increasing from approximately $150 million in 2014 to nearly $300 million in 2018. In addition, Schimenti recently moved its New York headquarters to a new 14,000 square-foot location at 575 Lexington Avenue and opened its first West Coast office in Irvine, California.
NYS-SHRM and The Hartford Business Journal had a two-part process to determine the winners. The first part assessed each company's workplace policies, practices and philosophy, accounting for 25 percent of the evaluation. The second part was an employee survey on their experience working for the company, which counted for 75 percent of the total evaluation.
The employee answers to the survey revealed that 98 percent of Schimenti's workforce has confidence in the leadership of the company and is proud to work there. 95 percent of the employees also stated they intend to continue their careers at Schimenti for at least two more years, and 100 percent of them believe safety is a top priority for the organization.
