AP Honored as a 2019 Rochester Top Workplace

AP Professionals of Rochester is a 2019 top workplace! AP was awarded The Democrat and Chronicle’s Top Workplace honor based solely on employee feedback. Feedback was collected through an anonymous, third-party, Energage, LLC survey that measures various pieces of workplace culture.

Top Workplaces is more than just recognition. Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement. Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy. It’s an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal. – Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage

AP Professionals of Rochester is proud to be a winner of The D&C’s Top Workplace Award for three consecutive years. Likewise, we are ecstatic to be the 2019 special category award winner, “Doers.”

Our Culture

AP’s culture decorates the walls of our Linden Oaks office. Our conference rooms are a gallery celebrating success and fun had along the way. For example, you’ll see plaques, trophies, and photos – everything from quarterly “fun days” to professional networking and community volunteering events decorate our walls.  A few of our favorite fun days include a Park Ave bar crawl with Rochester Pedal Tours, golfing at Monro Golf Club, and team building at The Great Escape Room. However, others blend our love for fun and giving-back to the Rochester community. One of our most celebrated give-back days was a Habitat for Humanity build.
