New York, NY, December 11, 2014 – Abacus Group, LLC, a leading provider of hosted IT solutions for hedge funds and private equity funds, today announced it was named the 2014 “Best Place to Work in New York City” by Crain’s New York Business.
The Crain’s rankings serve as an annual spotlight recognizing New York City’s best employers judged on a series of factors, including employee satisfaction, salary, company growth, diversity, and employee benefits. Winners are selected based on the results of a survey conducted by the magazine in partnership with independent research firm Best Company Group. The rankings were unveiled at a Crain’s New York Business luncheon on Dec. 4, 2014 and featured notable firms such as EMC Group, Buzzfeed and AOL Inc.
“This is an especially rewarding recognition for Abacus Group to be recognized alongside such leading innovators and established firms across a number of industries,” said Chris Grandi, CEO of Abacus Group. “At the core of our company is a commitment to our employees to ensure that we consistently attract, nurture, retain and develop employees who are excited to deliver exceptional client service and help grow the Abacus global business. We’ve always prided ourselves on being a company that fosters growth, learning and leadership, and it’s an honor to have that vision recognized by Crain’s.
The fast-growing financial services company ranked number one in the list of NYC’s 100 best employers, where Crain’s cites Abacus Group as a “…warm, welcoming workplace where everyone is accessible to each other, and where employees want to come each day not only for the projects but for the people.” Other notable factors were the firm’s many employee perks, such as its monthly dinners, happy hours and dedication to an internal culture that encourages personal and professional growth.
