Idea Grove Ranks Among Highest-Scoring Businesses on Inc. Magazine’s Annual List of Best Workplaces for 2021

Idea Grove Listed As Sole Advertising & Marketing Agency To Receive Recognition In The Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex

DALLAS--()--Idea Grove has been named to Inc. magazine’s annual list of the Best Workplaces for 2021. Hitting newsstands May 18 in the May/June 2021 issue, and as part of a prominent feature, the list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of American companies that have created exceptional workplaces and company culture whether teams are operating in person or remotely.

Since 2005, Idea Grove has distinguished itself as a unified, trust-centered PR and marketing agency that truly understands growth-oriented B2B technology and their buyers. While Idea Grove has worked as valued partners with some of the most well-known and trusted names in technology, the agency has also helped a variety of bootstrapped startups triumph in nine-figure exits. Above all, Idea Grove is most proud of the trust and mutual respect it has built with both its own team and the clients it has served over the past 15 years.

The bedrock of Idea Grove’s business model is trust, which it achieves through teamwork, accountability and open communication. Those standards are applied not only to the agency’s client work, but also in the way each and every employee is treated—from interns to the C-suite. By fostering an environment in which new ideas are always welcome, feedback is appreciated and employees feel respected, Idea Grove is positioning itself for continued growth and success.

Collecting data from thousands of submissions, Inc. singled out 429 honorees this year. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, on topics including management effectiveness, perks, and fostering employee growth. The organization’s benefits were also audited to determine the company’s overall score and ranking.

“Idea Grove has gone to extraordinary lengths to attract, develop and maintain its workforce, and we are honored to receive this recognition now more than ever,” said Scott Baradell, CEO, Idea Grove. “Not only is this no small feat—as this year’s field of entries was the most competitive we’ve ever seen—it is also a true testament of our employees’ daily commitment to embody our six evergreen values: Creativity, Respect, Energy, Accountability, Teamwork and Empathy.”

“The definition of a positive workplace has changed drastically over the past year,” says Inc. magazine editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “Stocked fridges and nap pods were no longer perks many companies could rely on once work went remote. So, this year’s list is even more important as it reveals organizations that continue to enrich the lives of its employees amid a pandemic.”
