Digital marketing agency Ervin & Smith has been honored as one of the 50 Best Places to Work in Advertising & Media by Advertising Age. This is the 33-year-old agency’s second time in three years to receive the exclusive recognition. The agency was among 50 companies from across the country selected based on survey criteria such as hiring practices, benefits packages, salaries, office perks and workplace environment and design.
Ervin & Smith employees are rewarded with growth opportunities and competitive compensation and benefits. In addition, the agency’s unique culture is supported by a wide variety of “perks” and programs designed to make the agency a great place to work, such as unlimited vacation, vacation vouchers for a free vacation, a credentialed life coach, professional training, surprise celebrations, family outings, a pet-friendly work environment, wellness perks and more.
“We are honored to receive this award for a second time,” said Heidi Mausbach, president and CEO of Ervin & Smith. “At Ervin & Smith we pride ourselves on creating things that matter – it’s our agency mission. That is why we are so focused on creating a culture that matters as well. We want to give back to our employees in meaningful ways so that they thrive, personally and professionally.

“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.”

About the Best Places to Work Survey
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.
