Best Places to Work: No. 23 Erwin-Penland

Open Work Areas Is Just One Way This Shop Breaks Down Barriers

Published on .


Erwin-Penland offers employees a host of on-site activities and perks (known as EPerks), including massages, a car-wash service, a workout facility and personal trainer, on-site alterations and shoe repair and a mother's room.

Located in Greenville, S.C., the marketing agency has a large meeting area known as Central Park, and staffers sit by client teams rather than by departments. The company is split into three buildings, and each boasts an "open cube" working area and large conference rooms. Staffers can take a break to play some Wii or Ping-Pong.

On a more serious note, the company organizes training and conduct programs throughout the year to "break down barriers" and allow employees to function in a more cohesive manner. Each new employee is also assigned a mentor, who helps familiarize the new employee with the company's processes, goals and culture.
