Rochester, New York, March 28, 2023 - Brighton Securities has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2023 honor by Rochester Top Workplaces. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage LLC. The confidential survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, to name a few.

This is the 10th year the Democrat & Chronicle has partnered with Energage to celebrate exceptional workplaces and Brighton Securities’ 9th year being named a Top Workplace. For this year’s awards, 3,054 organizations were invited to survey their employees. Based on employee survey feedback, 79 have earned recognition as Top Workplaces. Brighton Securities is honored to been named as #16 Top Workplace in the small business category for 2023. “Earning a Top Workplaces award is a badge of honor for companies, especially because it comes authentically from their employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “That's something to be proud of. In today's market, leaders must ensure they’re allowing employees to have a voice and be heard. That's paramount. Top Workplaces do this, and it pays dividends.”

“We know that workplace culture is created by individuals within our firm at every level and the culture at Brighton Securities is strong” said Melissa Hawryschuk, Chief Executive Officer, Brighton Securities Holdings, Inc. “That culture determines the success we have in attracting and retaining top talent and in the overall satisfaction that an individual has with their choice of employer. Our goal is and will always be, to ensure that our firm remains a destination for top talent. The primary reason Brighton Securities has achieved the level of success it has over the past 54 years is because of our people, the value they continue to provide our clients, the support they give one another, and the positive impact they have on our community.”

“Our focus is on our people,” said Jordan Daniels, Chief Growth Officer. “It’s important that our tenured teammates feel valued and see a clear path for growth and that prospective candidates see us as an employer of choice. This allows the firm to thrive with a dedicated and loyal team, ultimately enabling an exceptional experience for our clients as we continue to support them in reaching their financial goals.”
