Dr. Bernstein has received plaudits for his innovation and leadership in hair transplantation and medical hair restoration. However, what is less frequently noted is that he holds an MBA from Columbia University and has applied some of this knowledge toward making his company a leader in the business community as well.
Now, Bernstein Medical – Center for Hair Restoration is receiving its own recognition for leadership in appreciating the value of its workers. The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) has named Bernstein Medical the number one small or medium-sized business to work for in the state. The 2013 ‘Best Companies to Work For in New York’ list placed Bernstein Medical at the top slot, out-ranking companies from New York City as well as Rochester, Syracuse, and elsewhere in the state.
Bernstein Medical was also featured in the 2013 awards program:
“A recognized leader in the development of hair transplantation techniques and clinical research, the center was the third in the world and one of 12 current hair restoration practices to utilize and control the ARTAS Robot in follicular unit extraction procedures. Seminars, meetings and continuing education classes help the physicians, surgical team and front-office staff to maintain a high degree of ethics, innovation and the latest skills.
The long-term, family-forward attitude of the workplace is supported by a retirement plan and package that couples a 401(k) with both safe harbor and profit-sharing benefits. […] A team culture allows those who work there to voice their ideas and opinions with confidence.”
Created in 2007, these celebrated annual awards are a distinctive program that evaluates and ranks the best places of employment based on employee satisfaction and engagement, as well as workplace practices and policies. The assessment is made using a two-part survey process. In the first part, the employer provides details about company benefits, policies, and practices. The second, and most important, part is a confidential employee survey in which employees evaluate their workplace experience.
The program is a partnership of New York State SHRM, Best Companies Group, Journal Multimedia Corporation and The Business Council of New York.
