New York – Transwestern today announces it has earned an unprecedented back-to-back No. 1 ranking on the “Best Places to Work in New York City” list by Crain’s New York Business, marking the fourth time for the firm to be recognized. Transwestern was chosen out of hundreds of companies from various industries across all five boroughs. The honor follows a series of triumphs for Transwestern, including being named a “Best Workplace for Women" and a “Best Workplace for Millennials” by Great Place to Work® and Fortune magazine.

The commercial real estate firm drew special attention for its unique compensation program for brokers, including salary and bonuses; a formal mentorship program; paid time off for community service; a wellness program including massage therapy six times a year; and a young professionals program providing quarterly networking, charitable and educational events.

“It’s a true honor to be recognized once again as the No. 1 Best Place to Work in New York City,” said Steve Purpura, Executive Managing Partner and Northeast Market Leader. “This award is particularly meaningful as it’s a reflection of our continued dedication to empowering our team members, collaboration, and excellent service. We’ve had an incredibly productive year, and I couldn’t think of a better way to highlight that success than recognizing the people who made it happen.”

Companies from across all five boroughs participated in the two-part survey process conducted by Best Companies Group. Each company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics were evaluated, accounting for 25 percent of the ranking. An employee survey accounted for 75 percent. The combined scores determined the final rankings.
