High levels of trust and camaraderie help drive ranking

Peppercomm is proud to announce its inclusion on the inaugural 10 Best Workplaces in Advertising & Marketing list by Great Place to Work® and Fortune magazine. The strategic communications and marketing firm was ranked #8 based on several factors including high employee satisfaction, effective internal communication and a sense of trust and responsibility.

“There’s an undeniable passion at Peppercomm that churns in us all, which serves as a direct reflection of an encouraging mindset and ability to think freely together,” said Caleb Freeman, Senior UX Architect at Pepppercomm. “Each project is different; each request is unique. We are empowered to work together and to inspire one another. Our unity absolutely fosters a higher sense of grit and devotion to Peppercomm and to our clients.”

More than 4,000 employees at Great Place to Work®–Certified companies in the Advertising & Marketing sector were evaluated for the ranking. Peppercomm was ranked among some of the most innovative digital marketing, public relations and advertising firms, based on employees’ responses to anonymous survey questions asking about the levels of trust, pride and camaraderie they experience in the workplace. Pepercomm’s Great Place to Work review highlights a number of unique perks and programs that contribute to the company’s culture, including flexible work arrangements, a day off on your birthday, semi-monthly meditation and movement sessions, and training all employees on stand-up comedy.

“A full 100 percent of Peppercomm employees responded that our workplace is one where people care about each other and are given a lot of responsibility,” said Sara Whitman, Managing Director and Chief Culture Czar. “That’s incredibly humbling and we’re proud to have employees who contribute to building this creative culture where people can do their best work with the support and flexibility required to do so.”

Earlier this year, Peppercomm was named The Holmes Report Corporate/B2B Agency of the Year and was ranked as one of the 50 Best Workplaces for Recent College Graduates by Great Place to Work® and Fortune. In 2015, the firm also ranked as one of Great Place to Work and Fortune’s Best Workplaces for Women. Peppercomm took the No. 1 spot on Crain’s New York Business Best Places to Work list in 2012.

"Personal relationships fuel the creative process and client service alike at the Best Workplaces in Advertising and Marketing,” said Kim Peters, executive vice president of Great Place to Work®. “Employees at these standout organizations speak of high levels of trust and camaraderie – traits essential to innovation and exploring ideas as a team."
