Here’s good news if you’ve haven’t yet nominated a company for the 2021 Long Island Top Workplaces competition: The deadline has been extended to May 21.  

For employers, this means you have more time to show off the strides you’ve made in creating a positive workplace culture — which is a great way to attract new talent. For employees, it’s a chance to sound off if your company has room to improve.

Schneps Media, which publishes Dan’s Papers, Long Island Press, and Noticia, has partnered with Energage, a research company that conducts Top Workplaces surveys for media in 56 markets. This is the fourth year of the program running on Long Island; it was previously operated by Newsday.

So far, more than 80 Long Island companies have signed up to take the Top Workplaces survey. This is how it works: Nominate a company that you think is worthy, and then Energage invites that company to participate by conducting a survey of its employees.

Entrants will receive a complimentary culture review, during which Energage will highlight what your company “hits” and “misses” and areas where you can improve.
