Updater Named One of Crain’s Best Places to Work in NYC

NEW YORK, NY – (September 28, 2016) – For the first time, Updater was named today as one of the Best Places to Work in New York City. The recognition program, launched nine years ago by Crain’s New York Business, is a joint effort of Crain’s New York Business and Best Companies Group.

“No matter what our goals and deadlines are, nothing tops our commitment to our employee’s happiness and our continuing efforts to foster a strong culture,” says David Greenberg, Updater’s Founder and CEO. “The feeling of fun and friendship among the Updater team is palpable wherever you turn, and this recognition is a tribute to the passion, feedback and dedication of our entire team.”

In an interview with Inman, Greenberg said, 

“I focus most of my time on setting strategy and recruiting the absolute best people in the business. Without those people, we can never be a great company. I learned the hard way that it’s simply not possible to build an amazing company without amazing people.”

Crain’s survey and awards program identifies, recognizes and honors the best employers in New York City, benefiting the city’s economy, workforce and businesses. This year’s list is comprised of 100 organizations.

Crain’s New York Business will report, publish and promote the numerical rankings online at crainsnewyork.com on Friday, December 2nd and in Crain’s New York Business’ print edition on Monday, December 5th. The data was supplied by contracted independent research firm Best Companies Group, which is responsible for the entire registration and survey process, analysis of the data and final rankings. Crain’s New York Business only reports on the results of the data provided by Best Companies Group.

Companies from across all five boroughs participated in the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in New York City. The first part (25% of the ranking) consisted of evaluating each nominated organization’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part (75% of the ranking) involved an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.
