Peppercomm Named to PRWeek’s Best Places to Work 2020
NEW YORK – December 16, 2020 – Peppercomm, a leading strategic communications and marketing agency, today announced its official selection as one of PRWeek’s Best Places to Work 2020 in the Small Agency category. Highlighting some of the most prominent and progressive agencies in the PR industry, the Best Places to Work winners show how successful employers listen to and empower their staff, which was heightened this year by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The panel of judges recognized Peppercomm for its commitment to work-life balance, recognition of employee excellence and effective and inspirational leadership. The agency was particularly lauded for its response to COVID-19, including its “open communication and expectations of what’s to come” and a “seamless shift to virtual.” Weekly meetings called PepSpotlights, in which employees answers questions about themselves in front of the whole agency, also helped promote team-building during the shift to remote work.
“This was a year of unprecedented challenges for agencies, which were forced to adjust to remote work and all its associated challenges, from childcare to employee burnout,” said PRWeek executive editor Frank Washkuch. “Best Places to Work 2020 honors all those firms that found innovative ways to go the extra mile for their teams in a previously unimaginable work environment.”
PRWeek’s Best Places to Work initiative, launched in 2013, invites participating agencies to distribute a link to our survey questionnaire to their employees. After collating the scores and narrowing down a shortlist, PRWeek convenes a panel of staff and external judges — experts in talent recruitment within the public relations sector — to pick the winners.
“After going through the most difficult year in our collective lifetimes, it is especially validating to receive one of the highest employee-focused recognitions in the communications industry and be selected as a Best Place to Work by PRWeek,” said Steve Cody, CEO, Peppercomm. “It is thanks to our employees that we have an agency at all, let alone one with the fantastic client successes and phenomenal culture they’ve helped create here at Peppercomm, so it means the world that this honor stems from their direct feedback and positive experiences.”
