Small Agency of the Year, Culture, Silver: Spawn Ideas
Being based in Alaska means Spawn Ideas is already an agency rarity.
Factor in an employee base that is 73 percent female, and an outdoors-loving crew that runs 16-mile uphill trails for fun, and it's clear the employee-owned company is one-of-a-kind. That reputation has helped it attract employees to its Anchorage headquarters, where the office freezers are stocked with everything from berries to bear meat.
The company encourages staffers to bring their babies to work and even clothes them in "Just Hatched" onesies, and provides support such as nursing rooms with workstations to new mothers.
