Agency’s fifth major workplace award of the year recognizes high levels of honesty and communication by managers

Peppercomm is proud to announce its inclusion on the 50 Best Small Workplaces by Great Place to Work® and Fortune. The strategic communications and marketing firm was ranked #23 based upon feedback from employees who completed an anonymous Trust Index© survey. This marks Peppercomm’s fifth major honor for workplace excellence in 2016.

“A great place to work is one that supports all aspects of your life, regardless of who you are,” said Morgan Salinger, Senior Manager, Client Relationships at Pepppercomm. “I consider myself lucky to have found a place like Peppercomm, where I’m surrounded by colleagues who are not only supportive, but who encourage me to pursue what I’m most passionate about.”

More than 52,000 employees at Great Place to Work®–Certified companies were evaluated for the ranking. Peppercomm was named among some of the most innovative companies, based on employees’ responses about the ingredients for a great workplace. Some responses included an assessment of the degree of support for employees’ personal and professional lives and the authenticity of relationships with colleagues. Peppercomm’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 and training for all employees on stand-up comedy.

“The hallmark of any great organization is a workplace that prizes people above all else. We are thrilled, and humbled, to be among the few organizations Fortune and the Great Place to Work Institute chose to select as a best practice,” said Steve Cody, CEO and co-founder of Peppercomm. “This honor reinforces our single-minded obsession to be THE employer of choice in our field.”

Earlier this year, Peppercomm was ranked as one of the 10 Best Workplaces in Advertising & Marketing and as one of the 50 Best Workplaces for Recent College Graduates by Great Place to Work® and Fortune. The firm also ranked for the second consecutive year as one of Great Place to Work® and Fortune’s Best Workplaces for Women in 2016. Additionally, this year, Peppercomm was named The Holmes Report Corporate/B2B Agency of the Year and took the No. 1 spot on Crain’s New York Business Best Places to Work list in 2012.

“There’s a generosity of spirit that infuses the Best Small and Medium workplaces—one that has a measurable return,” said Kim Peters, Executive Vice President of Great Place to Work. “Whether it’s funding employee ‘passion projects’ or giving surprise gifts to customers, the best workplaces give it away. And they get it back in the form of inspired people who innovate harder and generate higher revenue.”

Several companies ranked alongside Peppercomm include AgileCraft, First Orion and Wisetail. The 50 Best Small and Medium Workplaces is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work® and Fortune based on employee survey feedback from Great Place to Work®-Certified organizations.

Published together with our partner, Fortune, the Best Small & Medium Workplaces rankings are based entirely upon feedback from more than 52,000 employees at Great Place to Work–Certified companies. Employees completed our anonymous Trust Index© survey, answering questions about how frequently they experience the behaviors that create a great workplace, including, for example, their assessment of the honesty and quality of communication by managers, degree of support for employees' personal and professional lives and the authenticity of relationships with colleagues.

Results from the survey are highly reliable, having a 95% confidence level and a margin of error of 5% or less. Winning a spot on this list indicates the company has distinguished itself from peers by creating a great place to work for all – not only do the majority of their employees experience the company as a great place to work, but this experience is consistent across the organization, regardless of gender, race/ethnicity, job role, or other personal characteristics. The companies with the highest employee ratings compared with organizations of the same complexity in size and scope were selected for the list. Companies with fewer than 100 employees compete for placement on the 50 Best Small Workplaces list, and companies between 100 and 999 employees compete for placement on the 100 Best Medium Workplaces list.
