Ad Age is beginning its search for the Best Places to Work in advertising.
The industry is more dynamic and fluid than ever, and talent is absolutely critical to success. Ad Age is out to find those workplaces that do an outstanding job attracting, retaining and nurturing talent.
There are several key changes to this year's contest, yet the mission remains the same: to recognize and celebrate the best places to work in our industry. Ad Age will specifically highlight advertising agencies, ad-tech firms, media companies and brand marketers.
Ad Age has partnered with a new vendor on this year's program to streamline the process and create a more efficient experience for entrants.
This year's contest also includes new eligibility requirements. Now, companies with as few as 15 full-time employees can enter, as can brand marketers. For details about eligibility requirements and to enter the 2016 contest, visit adage.com/BPTW. Early pricing ends June 17 and the final entry deadline is July 15.
In 2015, Ad Age highlighted 50 companies of various sizes from around the country, recognizing their outstanding benefits, nurturing cultures and standout spaces.
The 2016 Best Places to Work will be recognized in the November 14 issue of Ad Age and on AdAge.com. Participants will also have the opportunity to receive an in-depth data analysis report which identifies strengths and weaknesses within the organization.
