NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--After being recognized as the fastest growing public relations agency in the world and expanding to the European market via acquisition, Vested today announced it earned a spot on the coveted Best Places to Work listing from PRWeek.
In order to accommodate its rapid growth, the agency moved into new, larger office space in Manhattan’s Midtown West neighborhood.
“This PRWeek recognition as one of the best places to work is both an honor and validation that our ‘manivesto’ is meaningful. That putting financial expertise, entrepreneurship and an integrated mindset at the core of all that we do informs and drives our cultural values and appeals to industry talent,” said Binna Kim, co-founder and president of Vested. “The quality of our people -- and the fact that they stay with us -- testify to our being a great place to work.”
PRWeek develops its annual Best Places to Work list by anonymously surveying agency staff and assessing the results both qualitatively and quantitatively. “Successful employers listen to and empower their entire staffs, and none do it better than these organizations,” it wrote in this year’s release. It continued:
Only two years into its existence, Vested has quickly established itself as a firm that offers one of the most robust employee benefit packages in the market.
Vested employees are entitled to equity in the firm, unlimited vacation, a three-month sabbatical after four years of employment, and the use of the company account at Starbucks, Bluestone Lane, and Uber.
Numerous employees noted how the equity they have in the firm ensures they are all part of key conversations.
Vested’s new office, located at 22 w. 38th Street, is an open-plan space of 5,000 square feet that includes a custom bar and a co-working space for the agency’s allies, affiliates, and contractors.
Said Kim: “We carefully designed this new office to appeal to our employees’ needs and our integrated nature. We strive to be a great place to work both culturally and physically.” Vested Ventures, the investment fund Vested established last February, is located in this office as well.
Named the world’s fastest growing public relations agency, Vested is an integrated communications firm focused on the future of finance. Vested’s approach merges deep financial expertise with creativity to deliver award-winning, integrated campaigns for our global clienteles.
