NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - November 15, 2016) - Figliulo&Partners (F&P), the brand agency for the information age, has been named one of Advertising Age's 2016 Best Places to Work in Media and Advertising. Recognized as number 42, F&P was selected based on criteria such as workplace environment and design, diversity and work-life balance, career development, salaries and benefits and office culture.
"Being a best place to work doesn't mean bean bags and foosball tables, it means respecting each other and challenging each other to make great work," said Mark Figliulo, Founder and CEO of Figliulo&Partners. "Since we opened our doors, we've always said that you don't have to choose between one or the other. Great work and a great place to work go hand in hand."
The agency places a premium on the health and wellness of its employees, providing gourmet healthy snacks, a generous "Fitcoin" wellness allowance and health benefits that are 100% covered. Staff can take advantage of an annual wellness challenge, which provides cash prizes and incentives for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. This is alongside unlimited vacation days and a policy that every day is bring your pet to work day (on-site animal training provided free of charge). An active member of a CSA farm in New York, F&P also provides employees with locally grown organic fruits and vegetables. In turn, employees volunteer with the coop and serve the local community.
"I'm really proud of our culture. We've assembled a diverse and eclectic team of incredibly talented people which sets up to create the best possible work from the best possible people," added Figliulo.
The 2016 Best Places to Work list is a joint effort of Advertising Age and Best Companies Group.
