ClearVision Racks Up Company Awards

The Optical Journal - Optical News With Independent Views

For the third consecutive year, ClearVision Optical has been named one of 2017’s Best Companies to Work for in New York State.

Created ten years ago, these annual awards recognize the best employers in the state of New York.  To be considered for participation, ClearVision had to fulfill specific eligibility requirements and then complete a two-part survey.

ClearVision will be honored at a public awards dinner in Albany this April, during which the company will learn its rank among 46 companies in the category for small/medium sized employers with 15 to 249 U.S. employees.

It is a tremendous honor to be named a Best Company for the third year in a row,” says ClearVision Senior Talent Leader Jennifer Trakhtenberg.  “The recognition is meaningful, as it is determined based on our employees’ survey responses about their positive work experience.  Being named gives ClearVision tremendous access to learn best practices from other leading companies and to attract like-minded talent who seek a values-based organization.”
