NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - November 14, 2016) - Kepler Group announced today that it was named to Ad Age's 2016 Best Places to Work. The publisher's prestigious list showcases the top employers in the advertising and media industry based on workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, demographics and employee experience.
This recognition from Ad Age highlights Kepler's focus on establishing a culture based on employee empowerment and healthy work-life balance. Employee benefits include unlimited vacation, tuition reimbursement, 12 weeks paid parental leave, and a 401k with company match. Other programs include an immersive Kepler University training program that features 35 in-house classes, weekly cocktail parties, and group volunteer events.
"The companies on Ad Age's Best Places to Work represent the cream of the crop in marketing, advertising, media and ad technology," said Deputy Editor Judann Pollack. "In these highly competitive fields, these 50 stand out for their best-in-class benefits, salaries and hiring practices, but also for creating a compelling culture in which employees are engaged, encouraged and valued. Talent has never been more important in marketing, and our Best Places to Work companies have proven that they can attract and retain the best in the business."
"Kepler is honored to receive this award, which is really a credit to the incredible individuals who make up our team," said Rick Greenberg, Kepler's CEO. "Our company and culture reflect the passion and commitment everyone brings to the office every day. They celebrate each other's successes, mentor and train each other, and constantly surface innovative ideas for our clients and our own in-house technology platform. These qualities, and the people behind them, are what make this company such a special place to work."
The 2016 Best Places to Work list is a joint effort of Advertising Age and Best Companies Group. Best Companies Group is dedicated to establishing programs to identify and recognize workplaces that nurture a superior level of employee satisfaction and engagement. Companies from across the United States participated in the two-part survey process to determine Ad Age's Best Places to Work. Any agency, ad tech, media company, or marketing division of a brand that's been in business for more than one year with more than 15 full-time employees was eligible. Public, private, for-profit and non-for-profit businesses could all participate. The list was determined by feedback from two surveys. The first garnered information about employers' offerings and the second was an employee survey to measure the workplace experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.
