Pittsford, NY, April 19, 2022—Cooley Group, Inc., an industry leading branded solutions provider in promotional, print and fulfillment for over 75 years, announced today that it has been named one of the Best Companies to Work for in New York by The New York State Society for Human Resource Management (NYS-SHRM).   

Cooley Group is headquartered in Pittsford, NY, and has offices throughout the state. As a locally based and all employee-owned company, Cooley Group has a long history of hiring locally, maintaining a culture of continuous learning, teamwork, integrity, and service.  These values have been the foundation that has enabled lasting client relationships, continued growth, and achievement. 

“It’s a very high honor to be one of only 75 companies in all of New York State to be recognized in this way.  Every day I am very grateful for our colleagues at Cooley Group—for how they support our clients and, just as importantly, each other,” said Phil Yawman, President.  “I am extremely proud of our team. Despite the challenges we have all faced in the past two years, not only have we retained our long-time employees, but we have continued to grow and attracted new talent during this difficult time.”

Yawman went on to add, “While the pandemic changed how so many companies operate, including Cooley Group, our team’s shared commitment to embracing change as a pathway to continuous learning and further delivering a differentiated client experience has never wavered.  The reward for that is a great place to work, growth in our client base and the opportunity to give back to the communities that we live and work in.”

The distinctive Best Companies to Work for in New York Program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in New York, whose practices benefit the state's businesses, economy and workforce. Winners are determined by specific registration eligibility requirements and a two-part survey of employee satisfaction and engagement, as well as workplace practices and policies. 

The Cooley Group team has over 375 years of collective industry experience, ranging from several months to several decades.  Cooley Group has a very high employee retention rate and has simultaneously and successfully hired additional resources to support its growing client base. This has been made possible in part due to the company’s competitive compensation and benefits package including:

  • Flexible hybrid work environment
  • 401(K) and Profit Share Plan
  • Company stock ownership for all employees
  • Company provided health and dental coverage
  • PTO, including a company-wide community service day

In addition to being honored as a Best Company to Work for in New York, Cooley Group is also a five-time winner of the Best of Print and Digital Award, recognizing its best-in-class customer service, and recently earned the Pyramid Gold Award by Promotional Products Association International (PPAI).
