SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – Market Mentors, the region’s largest marketing, advertising and public relations agency, has been Great Place to Work-Certified™ for the second time. Great Place to Work® is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience and leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue and increased innovation.
“It has been a busy few years since we last sought certification, and with our steady growth, we wanted to take time to formally measure employee satisfaction again,” said Michelle Abdow, president, Market Mentors. “I’m delighted that not only were we certified, but our scores increased in nearly every category. We are proud of the culture we have developed over the past 20 years, and work hard to make our team feel appreciated and valued, because they truly are. This also allows us to be competitive in recruiting the best and brightest as we continue to grow, and lets us know what we do well and where we have room for improvement.”
Certification is a significant achievement that uses validated employee feedback gathered with Great Place to Work’s rigorous, data-driven methodology. Since 1992, the company has surveyed more than 100 million employees around the world and used deep insights to define the foundation of a great workplace: trust. It helps organizations quantify their culture and produce better business results by creating a high-trust work experience for all employees.
Following are highlights from Market Mentors’ survey:
- 92% of employees say the agency is a great place to work, compared to 57% of employees at a typical U.S.-based company.
- 96% of employees said that when they joined the company, they were made to feel welcome.
- 96% of employees said that people care about each other at work.
- 100% of people said they feel they make a difference, can count on people to cooperate and are treated as a full member regardless of their position.
“It’s important to us that our team members report consistently positive experiences with their colleagues, leaders and jobs,” said Pam Soisson, COO, Market Mentors. “Happy, engaged people are not only more productive, but they also drive better business results for our clients.”
The Great Place to Work culture management platform, Emprising®, empowers leaders with the surveys, real-time reporting and insights they need to make data-driven people decisions.
