WHY WE THINK WE'RE A GREAT PLACE TO WORK

This firm is passionate about culture and supporting its employees. We believe that family, career, health, and spirit are the four pillars of a quality life. They are all in constant need of attention, but are not independent of each other. It's the harmonious blend of all four--in association with a positive and supportive work environment--that creates true happiness.

WHY WE THINK WE'RE A GREAT PLACE TO WORK

We empower our employees to be at their very best and help them to believe in themselves. We let them take time to align professional and personal goals and trust our team members to get their work done. Need to work from home to watch your children for a day? We understand, no problem. Had a great month and want to head out early on a Friday to go skiing up north for the weekend? Go for it, you earned it. Need come in late due to a doctor's appointment? We've all been there.

WHY WE THINK WE'RE A GREAT PLACE TO WORK

Walker Sands is an agency at the forefront of the public-relations industry evolution. In the 15 years since our founding, we've cultivated a culture that prioritizes collaboration. While other agencies have struggled to bring public relations and digital services together, we've made that our foundation. We're here to tinker with new ideas, ask big questions, and have fun along the way. Our knowledge-sharing and process improvement doesn't flow from the top down. It's driven by our people through initiatives such as our kaizens, 13 staff-led groups that facilitate everything from wellness workshops to our internal newsletter, as well as volunteer events, happy hours, and our office snack supply; we conduct weekly staff feedback surveys through TINYPulse and offer contests like the $25k Challenge, which asked employees how they'd spend $25,000 to improve our agency. Walker Sands is filled with brilliant, determined marketing scientists, but our culture revolves around more than just work. We've put the tools, programs, and philosophy in place to make our agency a place where employees can live up to our core values: to constantly learn, support each other, and do exceptional work.

WHY WE THINK WE'RE A GREAT PLACE TO WORK

PeopleFirm is a strategy and implementation consulting firm that designs solutions to address today's workforce challenges. In other words, we help our clients gain a competitive advantage through their people. We passionately believe that an engaged, inspired workforce is the key to the success of any organization, and we've done our research into what goes into making a motivated workforce. Most importantly, we apply those best practices to our own employees. Our philosophy comes down to one simple concept: We trust our people to make good decisions, and entrust them with knowledgeably helping to build our practice, our team, and our business. We trust our employees to ask for feedback when they need it and want it, and provide ongoing, open conversation about how to build their careers. Finally, we make a deliberate effort to build a strong, vibrant culture. We all proudly follow the PeopleFirm values of doing what you love and loving what you do, celebrating individuals and teamwork. We invest time, effort, and cash to remain connected and cohesive, including after-hours social events, retreats, employee-led training events, and monthly all-hands meetings in which we communicate openly and honestly about the state of the practice.
