BOSTON (Nov. 20, 2015) – SapientNitro, part of Publicis.Sapient, today was named one of the 50 Best Places to Work 2015 in Advertising & Media by Advertising Age, climbing twelve spots to #17 in this year’s rankings. SapientNitro was among 50 companies selected based on criteria such as hiring practices, benefits packages, salaries, office perks, workplace environment and design.
“We are extremely proud of this recognition and I offer my sincerest thanks to all of our people, each of whom helps make SapientNitro a great place to work,” said Alan Wexler, Chief Executive Officer, SapientNitro. “It is our collaborative culture, interesting and challenging work and limitless learning and growth opportunities that allow us to engage some of the best and brightest talent in the world.”
In naming SapientNitro to the 2015 list, Advertising Age highlighted the agency’s open culture, growth opportunities and flat organizational structure. SapientNitro also considers its unique people experience, highly-connected global network and extensive learning and development opportunities to be key differentiators in the industry.
“Our unique culture and the diversity of experience of our people creates an environment that challenges, inspires and empowers individuals to do boundary-breaking work, deliver transformational impact for our clients and leave their mark on this industry,” said Wexler.
Earlier this year, the agency did away with formal performance rankings and introduced Enabling Your Potential, a new program that focuses on coaching and ongoing conversations as the primary means to developing talent, reinforcing behaviors consistent with the agency’s culture, and helping its people achieve their career goals. Last month, the agency also launched a career return pilot program, which helps industry professionals rejoin the workforce after taking time off.
Submissions for the 50 Best Places to Work in Advertising & Media were evaluated by Advertising Age research partner Buck Consultants LLC, who crafted two surveys to help identify the companies with the best benefits and most-engaged employees. The employer survey contained about 100 questions, including questions about pay, promotions, health care and other benefits and hiring practices. The employee survey contained about 50 questions and measured aspects of the workplace environment that contribute to an engaged staff, including matters such as fairness of pay, vacation time, relationships with management and co-workers, career development and other workplace issues. Any agency, ad tech or media company with more than 40 full-time employees in the U.S. was eligible.
