Receives a “Business Improvement Award” for Modern and Collaborative Office That Offers Inside/Outside Spaces and a Seamless Work/Life Balance
LOS ANGELES, April 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Hawthorne, the
leader in accountable and analytics driven advertising, announced today it earned two award wins including a Great Place to Work® award and a Business Improvement Award from the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce.
Hawthorne received the certification from the independent analysts at Great Place to Work® based on the extensive ratings from anonymous employee surveys. Highlights of the survey include 98% of respondents noting Hawthorne fosters a “Great Atmosphere” and 95% stating they feel “Great Pride” in working with the company, and other accolades such as “Great Bosses,” “Great Rewards,” “Great Communication” and rewarding work with “Great Challenges.”
“Employees produce outstanding results for clients when you provide them with the right environment and structure to succeed,” said Jessica Hawthorne-Castro, Owner/CEO of Hawthorne. “It’s very satisfying to see the high marks the company received from employees, especially in terms of the atmosphere and challenges we create for them. We provide staff with a wide range of perks and support that help them to grow professionally while we provide accountable results for our clients.”
Hawthorne has a vast array of employee benefit programs that capture what’s unique about its workplace including the Community Causes Donation Teams where committees gather in each of the company’s office locations to determine the specific causes that will receive Hawthorne employees’ time or company funds.
In addition, Hawthorne offers several other perks for staff members to help achieve a productive work/life balance. These perks include 15 unique areas for private and collaborative work along with flexible work hours. The health of employees is supported through free nutritious snacks and meals, an onsite massage service, and a fitness center that includes modern machines, weights, and an outdoor trail walk. Hawthorne also offers “Lunch and Learn” programs featuring a complimentary lunch and a relevant topic discussion to aid the employees’ personal and professional lives. Mental wellness is supported through a meditation and reimbursement program to encourage staff to learn Transcendental Meditation (TM.org). The company also supports the staff through an Employee Appreciation Day that involves team-building or charitable work in addition to the generous company holiday and vacation package.
“We applaud Hawthorne for seeking certification and releasing its employees’ feedback,” said Kim Peters, Executive Vice President of Great Place to Work’s Certification Program. “These ratings measure its capacity to earn its own employees’ trust and create a great workplace – critical metrics that anyone considering working for or doing business with Hawthorne should take into account as an indicator of high performance.”
The Business Improvement Award from the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce recognizes the considerable improvements Hawthorne made to its Midwest office location in Fairfield, IA. The office features a modern design and furnishings that highlight the natural elements of the building, including a variety of open, collaborative, and private office spaces, adding elements such as foosball, ping pong tables and a private gym. Multiple decks and a gazebo that overlooks a pastoral setting provide employees with a quiet place to work and enjoy nature.
“Our employees do their best creative work when they’re given the tools to succeed and can enjoy a collaborative and engaging workspace,” said Hawthorne-Castro. “As a proud native of Fairfield, I am very pleased to receive this award recognition that reflects our modern office that combines indoor and outdoor spaces. It offers easy access to trails, an in-house workout facility, and other unique features that create our signature work/life balance.”
