Wpromote Wins Glassdoor Employee's Choice Award, One of the Top 50 Best Places to Work in 2022

Glassdoor | January 15, 2022

Wpromote was named one of the top 50 Best Places to Work in 2022 and awarded a Glassdoor Employees' Choice Award across all industries in the U.S. small and medium company category. The 14th annual Employees' Choice Award is based solely on elective, anonymous employee feedback about their job, work environment, and employer on Glassdoor, the worldwide leader on insights about jobs and companies. We don't believe great work is possible without a supportive culture that prioritizes a strong-work life balance, Our people are the driving force behind our success as an organization and what we can achieve for our clients, and continuing to improve the way we work through employee feedback is a top focus. As a leader, this should be a no-brainer: a better work culture and investment in our employees' growth means people are more willing to try new things, take risks, and unlock their full potential. -Wpromote CEO Mike Mothner Between pandemic disruption, "The Great Resignation," and a hyper-competitive job market, both retention and talent acquisition are particularly challenging for organizations across every industry. Marketing agencies in particular have struggled to retain employees. But 95% of reviewers on Glassdoor are willing to recommend Wpromote to a friend because investment in workplace improvement and culture is not a brand new priority and is constantly evolving based on multiple employee feedback mechanisms, including an annual employee engagement survey. On Glassdoor, current and former employees voluntarily and anonymously share insights and opinions about their work environments by sharing a company review, designed to capture a genuine and authentic inside look at what a specific job may be like at a particular company. "The world of work is rapidly evolving, fueled by the pandemic and now millions of workers reevaluating their expectations from employers. This year's Best Places to Work winners are leading the way by listening and responding to employee feedback and reimagining the employee experience to truly put their people first, It's inspiring to see these employers step up during the pandemic to expand and grow company cultures where employees feel supported and valued in and out of work. Congratulations to all of this year's Employees' Choice Award winners." -Christian Sutherland-Wong, Glassdoor chief executive officer. Glassdoor's Best Places to Work were determined using company reviews shared by U.S.-based employees between October 20, 2020 and October 18, 2021. To be considered for the U.S. small and medium company category, a company must have had fewer than 1,000 employees and have received at least 30 ratings across each of the nine workplace attributes (overall company rating, career opportunities, compensation and benefits, culture and values, diversity and inclusion, senior management, work-life balance, recommend to a friend and six-month business outlook) taken into account as part of the awards algorithm. The final list is compiled using Glassdoor's proprietary algorithm, led by its Economic Research Team, and takes into account quantity, quality and consistency of reviews.

PCG Announces New Employee Support and Engagement Efforts as Pandemic Continues

Public Consulting Group | December 20, 2021

Public Consulting Group (PCG) announced new action and additional measures to support and engage employees as the pandemic continues. This week, the firm provided a $1,000 stipend to each of its nearly 3,000 employees to assist with COVID-related personal, family, or living expenses. This marks the second time PCG has provided financial resources to all employees to offset the impacts of COVID. The stipend is in addition to the traditional Holiday bonus employees receive. Full office openings have also been postponed indefinitely as PCG prioritizes safety and flexibility for its nearly 3,000 employees. Specifically, the firm is using technological resources to identify and support new options to design and sustain a hybrid workplace for its workforce. These options include a desk reservation system that enables employees to decide when and how they physically go into a PCG office to work, and to facilitate social distancing. PCG is taking the celebration of its 35th year in business fully virtual and providing every employee with $35 toward the lunch of their choice during the virtual event. "The safety and well-being of our people is our first priority. The pandemic has created new personal and professional responsibilities for our employees and we have responded with creativity to support our people at home and at work. The past 18 months have tested many long-held assumptions at PCG, and one we now recognize as a fact is that PCG's sense of community and culture of innovation do not rely on the physical presence of our people, they are activated wherever our people are. We will continue to support that. PCG employees work effectively from everywhere, "There's no reason we cannot also come together in celebration from everywhere." -PCG Founder and CEO William Mosakowski Founded in 1986, PCG has grown over 35 years to nearly 3,000 people across the U.S., Canada, and Europe and has galvanized them around a commitment to helping public sector organizations make life better for people. The company marks its 35-year anniversary this month. An in-person celebration had been planned for the event, but the company decided to take the celebration virtual in the wake of a new pandemic strain. Ripplematch recently named PCG among the Next Gen 100 Top Workplaces, featuring companies and organizations that invest in programs, benefits, and culture that promote personal and professional success. In conjunction with the ranking, Ripplematch issued What GenZ Wants, a report on what GenZ values in a workplace. Flexibility is chief among valued benefits. PCG has made significant contributions to combatting COVID-19 as a trusted partner to public health authorities for contact tracing services in several states: New York, Wisconsin, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Arkansas, and South Carolina. About Public Consulting Group Public Consulting Group LLC (PCG) is a leading public sector solutions implementation and operations improvement firm that partners with health, education, and human services agencies to improve lives.
