Integrated Marketing Firm Earns National Recognition for Work Ethic, Creative Culture
Madison, WI (Sept. 21, 2010) – Hiebing, an integrated marketing and brand management firm, announced today it was named one of the Best Places to Work in Marketing & Media by Ad Age, the leading global source of news, intelligence and conversation for marketing and media communities.
The inaugural list highlights 30 companies across the United States that are thriving in their commitments to their employees and their work and whose workplaces cultivate camaraderie, reward creativity and spur innovation.
“We’re honored to be named one of the best places to work in our industry,” said Dave Florin, president at Hiebing. “Many companies associate marketing shops with bigger cities like New York and Chicago. Ad Age’s list showcases companies throughout the United States that produce exceptional work and are home to some of the best creative minds. It’s exciting that the mission and culture of our full-service, Madison-based firm have earned national recognition.”
Ad Age highlighted Hiebing’s Midwest work ethic, church-turned-office workspace, focus on teamwork, light-hearted atmosphere, pro-bono work and partnership program in its recognition of the company.
“Hiebing is in the ideas business,” added Florin. “Great ideas come from people, so it’s our responsibility as a company to create a culture where team members can flourish creatively and professionally. We’re lucky to be fueled by an exceptional client roster that keeps our creative, media, digital, brand strategy, public relations and research departments focused on finding and discovering the best ideas.”
The Best Places to Work in Marketing & Media program was open to all public and privately held advertising agencies, media organizations and companies with marketing operations of more than 25 employees. Ad Age and Best Companies Group, a firm that conducts Best Places to Work programs in a number of industries, created a two-part assessment that included a confidential survey of employees and a questionnaire about each company’s benefits, policies and practices to create this year’s list.
