JACKSON, Miss.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Ramey Agency was recently named as one of the 2017 Ad Age Best Places to Work. This is the third year in a row the company has received the honor. Ad Age has partnered with Best Companies Group to identify companies that have excelled in creating quality workplaces for employees.
“We are honored to once again be named one of Ad Age’s Best Places to Work,” said Ramey CEO Chris Ray. “We are passionate about our work and we show up every day because we love what we do. We work hard to foster an environment of teamwork and creativity, which I think ultimately comes through in the end-results we give our clients.”
This survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in the Advertising and Marketing industries, benefiting the industry’s economy, workforce and businesses. The list is made up of 50 companies.
This recognition from Ad Age highlights Ramey’s focus on establishing a culture that enables collaboration, giving back to the community and creativity. Employee benefits include 40 community-service hours a year, staff massage therapist, monthly enrichment events (including wine tasting with sommelier, desk yoga, still life drawing), along with multiple indoor and outdoor creative spaces.
“Be prepared to get jealous,” said Ad Age Editor Brian Braiker. “If you’re not employed at one of our Best Places to Work, odds are you’ll attempt to change that after reading this list. From paternity leave and lavish birthday gifts to educational stipends, flex time, team-building trips and more, these companies are innovating on employee perks, benefits, good vibes and inspiring products. Too bad we don’t offer tips on sneaking job interviews on the side.”
Companies from across the United States entered the two-part survey process to determine Ad Age’s Best Places to Work. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.
