New York, N.Y. (PRWEB) November 18, 2015
On Monday, BusinessOnline was named one of the 50 Best Places to Work in Advertising & Media by Advertising Age. BOL was among 50 companies selected based on criteria such as hiring practices, benefits packages, salaries, office perks, workplace environment and design. Nearly 20,000 people were surveyed as part of the selection process.
BusinessOnline applauds employees’ ideas and challenges them to evolve and grow. As an organization that values commitment and recognizes employees’ efforts, a job at BusinessOnline is not just a job; it is a place where professionals can build a future. At its core the organization believes hard work should be rewarded and it permeates the culture. The relationships and friendships are not confined to the office walls, as is clear with company-wide Rock Band tournaments, city-wide scavenger hunts, or beautiful sunset cruises along the San Diego coast. Further, BusinessOnline understands that its people are the key to their success and want to ensure continuous learning and growth. They invest heavily in professional development — from paid college tuition, internal mentoring and educational programs, certification programs, professional organizations and association memberships. Then add in the open, creative office layout and perks such as an onsite bar, beer and wine fridge, free breakfast and lunch daily, free massage on Fridays and frequent ping pong tournaments, and it becomes clear that BusinessOnline is a great place to work.
"As always, the competition was tough. Out of the hundreds of companies who applied, we’re calling out more honorees than ever before. Fifty big shops, independents, agencies, ad tech, and media companies earned recognition for being leaders in recruiting, retaining, and cultivating talent," said Ken Wheaton, editor of Advertising Age. "At the end of the day all these organizations are in the talent business and they’re doing it right. They’re finding interesting, relevant, and often unexpected ways to create cultures and work environments that keep employees engaged."
Submissions were evaluated by Advertising Age research partner 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.
