For the second consecutive year, The Ramey Agency was named to the Top 10 of Ad Age’s 2016 Best Places to Work. Companies were selected based on criteria including workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, demographics and the employee experience.
“We are honored to be recognized again as one of AdAge’s Best Places to Work,” said Ramey CEO Chris Ray. “It’s certainly a testament to the innovative and passionate team at Ramey, who are devoted to building a special and successful agency.”
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.
“The companies on Ad Age’s Best Places to Work represent the cream of the crop in marketing, advertising, media and ad technology,” said Deputy Editor Judann Pollack. “In these highly competitive fields, these 50 stand out for their best-in-class benefits, salaries and hiring practices, but also for creating a compelling culture in which employees are engaged, encouraged and valued. Talent has never been more important in marketing, and our Best Places to Work companies have proven that they can attract and retain the best in the business.”
The 2016 Best Places to Work list is a joint effort of Advertising Age and Best Companies Group. Best Companies Group is dedicated to establishing programs to identify and recognize workplaces that nurture a superior level of employee satisfaction and engagement.
Companies from across the United States participated in the two-part survey process to determine Ad Age’s Best Places to Work. Any agency, ad tech, media company, or marketing division of a brand that’s been in business for more than one year with more than 15 full-time employees was eligible. Public, private, for-profit and non-for-profit businesses could all participate. The list was determined by feedback from two surveys. The first garnered information about employers’ offerings and the second was an employee survey to measure the workplace experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.
