Commit Agency operates under a “family first” motto, and with a team of about 30 people, the Chandler, Arizona-based ad agency certainly feels like one.
Commit Agency embodies ‘family first’
In addition to regular health insurance benefits, Commit offers employees short- and long-term disability, a 90-day maternity leave policy and unlimited PTO.
The agency is fully hybrid with employees setting the days they want to be in the office, and every Friday is an early Friday.
Employees are financially compensated when the agency does well, with Commit offering quarterly and annual bonuses.
“These things are how we give back for our team’s effort both in terms of time to enjoy their families and friends and then compensating them based on the company’s performance,” said Commit President David Ralls. “As we succeed, they see they get the benefit directly from that.”
The agency also works with employees to advance their careers. Each person takes the CliftonStrengths and StandOut assessments and is assigned to fitting tasks. Employees are sent to conferences and seminars to learn new skills, rewarded for completing certain professional certifications and attend “lunch and learn” events.
Commit didn’t have any layoffs during COVID, and Ralls plans on keeping that track record, come what may, in 2023. “We’ve got very clear and specific budgets that we are able to see into the future, and we work to hire only as a last option as opposed to first because we know it’s going to get tough,” he said.
What will set apart Commit as a Best Place to Work amid the challenges of 2023?
President David Ralls: “From a culture standpoint, our team members can truly make a difference, and their contributions can have a meaningful effect on our clients. We’ve got good longevity with less than 15% turnover a year, so we’re pretty proud of what we’ve been able to create.”
