Survey covers nearly 3,000 responses from 78 PR/Communications organizations
A survey by national trade publication PRWeek ranks Jackson Spalding among the Best Places to Work in 2017 in the public relations and communications industry. Jackson Spalding is recognized in particular for work-life balance, flexibility and innovation in the workplace.
Following an annual quantitative and qualitative industry analysis, New York-based PRWeek honors the 2017 Best Places to Work among small, mid-size and large agencies, as well as in-house teams. This year’s survey generated nearly 3,000 responses from employees representing 78 organizations – 18 of which were selected for recognition. Jackson Spalding was among four mid-sized agencies (51 to 200 staffers) recognized.
“It’s no coincidence that places with great people are great places to work,” said Bo Spalding, co-founder of Jackson Spalding. “Our agency has extraordinary individuals who make the workplace inspiring, thoughtful and always on the lookout for a better way. That’s a culture that benefits everyone, including and especially our clients.”
In its article on the award, PRWeek said, “In reviewing the staff submissions, judges were blown away by how frequently the word “family” was used when [Jackson Spalding] employees talked about their coworkers.”
PRWeek also noted Jackson Spalding stands out for having no job titles with a mentor/mentee structure, and transparency within the organization, all of which contribute to an environment that grows and retains talented employees.
“Since 2013, PRWeek has been proud to present its annual Best Places to Work list, which is determined through a rigorous process involving judges that represent top talent and recruitment organizations,” said PRWeek Managing Editor Gideon Fidelzeid. “The industry’s enthusiasm in taking part has been encouraging as it indicates just how important it is to create an environment in which employees can do their absolute best.”
