Schenectady, NY – April 11, 2016 – Astria Solutions Group announced today that it was awarded a Top Workplaces designation by The Times Union. Astria Solutions Group is the parent company of DocStar, an award-winning developer of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) and automated accounts payable software and CPI, a managed IT service provider with a focus on network and data center integration within the healthcare, local government, financial services and K-12 markets. Astria Solutions Group has more than 65 employees in Schenectady and around the US. Astria Solutions Group ranked 6th out of 25 similarly sized companies.

“Attracting the area’s best and brightest talent is the key to our growth, which is why we work so hard to cultivate a culture that people want to be part of,” said Tom Franceski, president and CEO of Astria Solutions Group. “This honor is a direct reflection of every one of our team members who has played a part in creating an environment that fosters innovation, collaboration, and prioritizes our customers’ success.”

Albany Times Union recognized 50 Companies and Organizations in Albany as Top Workplaces 2016. The Top Workplaces are determined solely on employee feedback. The employee survey is conducted by Workplace Dynamics, LLC, a leading research firm on organizational health and employee engagement. Top Workplaces are not only better places to work but are more likely to be successful than peer organizations.

The Astria Solutions Group culture unifies the organization to work as a team toward the same goal—providing our customers with a “WOW” experience. Dedication and commitment are not only appreciated, but rewarded with a wide range of  benefits including; flexible hours/schedule, paid time off for community service, social events like Super Bowl celebration, cookouts & softball games, in-house masseuse and an employee referral bonus program. As a result, we have high employee retention, with many employees at the firm for more than 10 years.

The Times Union honored the winners at an April 7th ceremony at the Glen Sanders Mansion.
