Jackson Spalding ranks in Top Five in the AJC 2014 Top Workplaces Study

ATLANTA (April 24, 2014) – Jackson Spalding, an integrated marketing communications firm with offices in Atlanta, Athens, Ga. and Dallas, Texas, placed 4th in the “Top 40 Small Companies Category” (less than 150 employees in Metro-Atlanta) in the annual Top Workplaces study conducted by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Workplace Dynamics.  No other communications, public relations, digital, advertising or marketing firm placed higher than 15th in any category, which includes midsize and large companies (more than 150 employees in metro Atlanta).

“This recognition is a testament to our employees and the work environment they cultivate at the firm,” said Eric O’Brien, co-owner of Jackson Spalding. “Plus, a better workplace ultimately leads to superior client service and helps to advance our clients’ strategic goals, which hits the bull’s eye of our firm’s mission.”  

Jackson Spalding climbed 25 spots since the last time they were featured in the AJC Top Workplaces list in 2011.

In recent years, Jackson Spalding was named “Best Small Agency to Work For in the U.S.” by The Holmes Report in 2011 and “Best Legal PR Firm” in Atlanta by the Daily Report in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
 
About the 2014 Top Workplaces study
From The Atlanta Journal-Constitution – More than 1,200 companies were nominated or asked to participate in the 2014 contest by the AJC and its partner, Workplace Dynamics, after employees across the metro area responded to print and online solicitations that began appearing in October.
 
More than 50,000 metro workers participated in the survey. They were asked to respond to a set of statements using a seven-point Likert scale. Each statement was tested to ensure a high correlation with how metro employees rate their workplaces. This was calculated by correlating the statement responses to a control question that asked each employee to rate his or her workplace on a scale of zero to 99.
 
The resulting top 100 list consists of 25 large companies (500 or more employees), 35 midsize companies (150-499 employees) and 40 small companies (149 or fewer employees).
A common theme crystallizes in the articles about these companies that have earned the loyalty and affection of their employees: They have invested as much in their employees’ well-being as they have in tangible perks. The reward for the company can be measured in satisfied customers and on the bottom line.
 
These companies should be considered the best metro Atlanta has to offer.
