Mintz + Hoke Named to Hartford Courant’s Top Workplaces


AVON, CT – (September 21, 2015) – Connecticut integrated marketing communications agency Mintz + Hoke is pleased to announce that it has again been awarded a Top Workplace honor. The Hartford Courant and FOXCT Top Workplaces program is affiliated with 40 major publishing partners across the United States and recognizes companies for meeting strict standards for organizational health.

 “We’re proud to earn this award. It’s a tribute to our employees and to a unique agency culture which they themselves are largely responsible for creating and maintaining,” said agency President Ron Perine. “Mintz + Hoke has earned a reputation for attracting talented people who are intellectually curious, collaborative and creative. It’s both an exciting place to work and one whose results our clients truly value.”

The Top Workplaces are determined by employee feedback through an employee survey conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, a leading research firm on organizational health and employee engagement. Mintz + Hoke employees completed a 24-question confidential survey that takes into account employee benefits, support of the local community, employee perks, and the connection between employees and the company. To participate, organizations must have a minimum of 50 employees in Hartford, Middlesex, Tolland, Windham and New London counties. Company management is not allowed to influence employee responses.

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees.”

This is the second consecutive year that Mintz + Hoke has been honored as a Top Workplace. In 2014, the agency placed 6th of 35 employers in the Small Employers category and was the highest ranking advertising and marketing firm in the category. Mintz + Hoke also earned a Top Workplaces special award based on standout scores in employee responses in the Work/Life Flexibility category. More about Mintz + Hoke is captured in a video posted on the company website.

The Hartford Courant and FOXCT published the complete list of Top Workplaces on September 20. For more information about the Top Workplaces lists and WorkplaceDynamics, visit and and social #TopWorkplace.
