ALBANY — Auto/Mate Dealership Systems announced today that it was recognized with a “Top Workplaces in the Capital Region” award by the Albany Times-Union newspaper for the second year in a row. Auto/Mate was featured in the “Small Workplaces” category for companies with 35 to149 employees.

“One of the best ways to create a successful business is to ensure a positive work environment for its employees,” said Mike Esposito, president and CEO of Auto/Mate. “When a person enjoys coming to work every day and has passion for what they do, it makes it easier to produce a superior line of products and provide excellent customer service.”

This is the second year that the Times-Union has awarded companies in the New York Capital Region with a “Top Workplaces” distinction. Companies were selected based on criteria combining employee feedback, benefits packages and corporate culture.

Some of Auto/Mate’s notable benefits include: company events and outings; involvement in and sponsorship of community events; company sponsored wellness program with hosted speakers; employee discounts; and paid volunteer day.

Auto/Mate has also been named a Best Places to Work in New York’s Capital Region by the Albany Business Review for three years running. Earlier this year, Auto/Mate was honored as the “Highest Rated” DMS vendor in the DrivingSales Dealer Satisfaction Awards.
