Ideas Collide, a Scottsdale marketing communications agency, made its debut on the Phoenix Business Journal’s “Best Places to Work” list in the top 25 – rounding out a year full of substantial growth and recognitions for the Scottsdale firm.

“Recognition as one of the ‘Best Places to Work’ has been a part of the agency’s goals since day one,” Ideas Collide Chief Strategist and Founder Matthew Clyde said. “A company’s brand starts with its culture, and practicing what we preach continues to be a huge key to the success of Ideas Collide.”

Ideas Collide offers a number of exceptional employee perks including health benefits with company-paid employee premiums, a 401(k) plan with matching funds, profit-share bonuses, flexible/remote work arrangements, and reimbursement for professional development and organization membership. The not-so-typical perks include an annual company retreat (usually held at one of the fabulous local resorts), company happy hours and movie days. The agency encourages a pet-friendly office and often a furry friend can be found any given time during the week.

“You can’t love your life if you don’t love your work,” Clyde said. “A foundation with this philosophy created a culture of dedication, passion and desire to become the best, not only as an agency, but also as professionals in our field.”

And it has paid off. In the last eight years, Clyde also led Ideas Collide to earn a Top 5 Small Agency award in Arizona from Ranking Arizona Magazine, the 2011 IMPACT Award Recipient in Company Culture Category and - together with long-time client Best Western International - the Hospitality Sales & Marketing Association International (HSMAI) 2012 eMarketer of the year. Other accolades include 23 HSMAI Adrian Awards, 5 AMA Spectrum Awards, 7 Travel Weekly Magellan Awards, 4 PRSA Copper Anvils, 4 WebAwards and 2 REGGIE Awards.

“I’m very proud of our accomplishment as an agency,” said Clyde. “But more proud of the amazing team that makes it happen. Having a great culture comes from everyone on the team. We collectively own the spirit and culture that makes the distinction and difference in the work and the experiences we create.”
