Mintz + Hoke Selected as one of the Hartford Courant and FOX61 Top Workplaces
Mintz + Hoke today announced the agency has been selected as one of the Hartford Courant and FOX61 Top Workplaces. The annual list of businesses recognizes those that have a strong commitment to company culture.
“The Top Workplaces program helps champion companies here in the greater Hartford region that understand culture is more than perks and benefits,” said Mintz + Hoke Chief Executive Officer, Ron Perine. “Company culture is about organizational health. It’s an enduring focus on creating environments where people want to be, where they feel valued and that they are contributing to something meaningful. This distinction acknowledges the hard work by every Mintz + Hoke employee—a true reflection of what we have built together.”
As part of the Top Workplaces program all employees are surveyed by Energage, an independent, third-party organization. Energage has compiled a deep body of research that has helped identify 15 cultural drivers that are critical to organizational success. Surveying and studying 58,000 organizations since 2006, the Top Workplaces program has grown to be a trusted source for identifying positive, engaging and authentic company cultures.
“Knowing that all employees had an opportunity to share their point of view about our company culture through the anonymous survey makes this honor even more significant,” said Mintz + Hoke Human Resource Manager, Christine Millette. “It’s an opportunity for people to say how they really feel. Honest and transparent communication is what we’re all about, which helps us attract and retain top talent.”
Complementing the annual Top Workplace survey, Mintz + Hoke employees are regularly engaged on the topic of company culture through TINYpulse, a cloud-based web application. Employees can share anonymous feedback, answer questions posed by the senior leadership team and give virtual “cheers” to coworkers for a job well done.
“In addition to digital engagement to foster and monitor company culture, we focus on finding ways to connect with each other offline, said Millette. “From our annual Habitat for Humanity build and Friday happy hours, to company sponsored outings like bowling and Hartford Yard Goats games, we are creating a culture where people enjoy spending time with one another—even after the workday ends.”
