“The enthusiasm that employees have has been outstanding, with participation from all levels of staff in the Corporate Challenge, walking club, community services & outreach, and safety & wellness programs,” Evanko continued.
Hurwitz & Fine was one of 8 WNY small companies honored, in the 25 – 99 local employees category, and was proud to stand beside such notable local companies as AAA of Western & Central New York, Tops Markets, BlueCross BlueShield of WNY, and EduKids Inc.
