Stewart’s Shops Named Top Workplace

We’re honored to be named a Times Union Top Workplace in the Capital Region, as voted by our own Stewart’s partners. This award measured qualities including company values and goals, employee engagement and growth opportunities, as well as compensation and benefits. Stewart’s President Gary Dake has also been recognized with a Leadership award based upon survey responses from Stewart’s partners.

Stewart’s employees own nearly 40% of the company through the Employee Stock Ownership Plan, or ESOP; a benefit for anyone working 1,000 hours a year. That’s why employees are called ‘Partners.’ ESOP statements have just gone out to participants, including a $10.5 million company contribution. Learn more here.

Along with health insurance and paid vacation, ESOP participants are offered paid maternity leave, discounted YMCA gym memberships and daycare, as well as a Make Your Own Scholarship program which provides college scholarships to partners’ dependents.

Stewart’s Shops is currently hiring for positions across the company. You can find more information on our careers page.
