    Congratulations to GRB for placing 7th on the 2013 Best Companies to Work for in NYS! I am proud to be part of an organization that values its employees - from an
    employee perspective, we really do like working with each other each day, and this was reflected in the results of the survey. GRB works hard to ensure its programs and policies encourages an employee-driven culture, and winning this award is a direct result of that effort. It is great to be a part of a growing team that values individual effort and an entrepreneurial culture.
