New York, NY (PRWEB) November 17, 2014
Engine Shop – an award-winning experiential sports, entertainment and lifestyle marketing agency – today was named one of the 40 Best Places to Work in Advertising & Media by Ad Age. In selecting Engine Shop for the honor, Ad Age noted the agency’s outstanding hiring practices, benefits packages, salaries, office perks, workplace environment and office design.
“We’re extremely proud of this honor because our greatest focus has been building a tremendous culture,” said Brian Gordon, President of Engine Shop. “When you have people that truly enjoy what they do and enjoy working with one another, it translates to a great client experience.”
Nearly 20,000 people were surveyed as part of the selection process. Submissions were evaluated by Buck Consultants LLC. With nearly a century of experience in employee and human resource consulting, Buck crafted two surveys to help Advertising Age find the companies with the best benefits and most-engaged employees. The employer survey contained about 100 questions, including questions about pay, promotions, health care and other benefits and hiring practices. The employee survey contained about 50 questions. It measured aspects of the workplace environment that contribute to an engaged staff, including matters such as fairness of pay, vacation time, relationships with management and co-workers, career development and other workplace issues. Any agency, ad tech or media company with more than 40 full-time employees in the U.S. was eligible.
“With hundreds of companies applying and going through the rigorous employer and employee survey process for the 2014 Ad Age Best Places to Work list, the competition was tough. The organizations that rose to the top are incredibly deserving,” said Natalie Zmuda, deputy managing editor at Ad Age. “In today’s dynamic business environment, talent is a key differentiator. The leadership teams we’ve honored have perfected the art of recruiting, developing and retaining talent, setting their firms apart from others in the advertising and media world. And they’ve carefully, thoughtfully crafted a culture and a work environment that anyone would be lucky to be a part of.”
