Wheelhouse Digital Marketing Group, a leading search and digital marketing agency, has been named by Inc. Magazine as one of an elite group of Best Workplaces for 2017. Wheelhouse DMG was selected out of thousands of applicants in the magazine’s second annual survey. This national award is the fourth significant business award for Wheelhouse over the past 12 months, and follows inclusion at #1,316 on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing companies in the U.S. as well as designation as one of the 100 fastest growing companies and one of the 20 Best Places to Work among midsize companies – both in Washington State and both awarded by the Puget Sound Business Journal.

As part of this award, Wheelhouse DMG is profiled in a special online feature on the Inc.com website, the focus of which is to recognize private companies in the U.S. that have created exceptional workplaces through a focus on culture, superior employee work experience, and outstanding benefits.

“I believe that the purpose of business is to do good in the world – for our clients, for our employees and for the communities in which we live,” said Aaron Burnett, president of Wheelhouse DMG. “To be named a Best Workplace by Inc. is affirmation that we are taking great care of our employees and collectively building a strong and vibrant culture that delivers richness in experience and value that goes beyond a paycheck.

“Being a Best Workplace for our employees is more than checking the box on typical benefits like 401k, great vacation and a great snack closet”, adds Paul Weinstein, VP of Client Services. “It’s working with the team to strengthen our culture and ensuring that our values guide our client work and make their experiences with us better than they could even have imagined.”

A few examples of why Wheelhouse DMG is among the best workplaces in the United States:

  • Generosity is a core value at Wheelhouse DMG. One of the ways the company puts this value into action is through quarterly “Generosity Days” during which all employees are given a day off (with pay) for the sole purpose of providing service to the people, organizations and causes they care about in their communities. And the company bolsters their service with donations of cash and/or goods to the organizations that they help.
  • One of the most surprising aspects of Wheelhouse culture is a belief in pursuing joy at work (yes, joy is a core value as well). Every employee has a monthly “Joy Fund” - $50 that can be spent on anything that brings joy to a Wheelhouse employee or client. Joy funds have been used for everything from opera tickets and noise-cancelling headphones to weekly housecleaning for someone who just needed a break.

Employee reviews on Glassdoor describe working at Wheelhouse like this:
