For the third consecutive year, PriceWeber, a digital-forward, full-service marketing and advertising agency in Louisville, Kentucky, has earned a spot on the “Best Places to Work in Kentucky” list, recognizing the state’s 100 top employers. PriceWeber is named among 39 companies in the small-sized employer category (15-149 employees).
“We are so proud of our team for making PriceWeber one of the best places to work in our state for the third year in a row,” said Fred Davis, CEO of PriceWeber. “Our agency’s success relies on the supportive, collaborative and welcoming environment that our team members have established, and they are the reason we continually receive recognition. Together, we have built a culture based on excellence, accountability, integrity, respect and trust, and it is wonderful to be recognized for this amongst so many reputable companies.”
PriceWeber is committed to providing employees with non-traditional work benefits that help make it a great place to work. Examples include annual wellness and technology allowances, a referral bonus program, a private Mom’s Suite for nursing mothers, recognition programs and annual awards to honor employees, and employee engagement and activity committees that coordinate on-site and off-site events, sustainability efforts, wellness programs, and more.
Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, PriceWeber offered a flexible work schedule and remote work options for employees. During the pandemic, the agency stepped up its schedule of regular virtual meetings to keep employees engaged, posted weekly employee spotlights on social media to recognize colleagues’ hard work, and found creative ways to enhance collegiality and connection, from virtual baby showers to the surprise delivery of cookies and yard signs that said “PriceWeber loves someone who lives here” to each team member’s home.
In 2021, PriceWeber also encouraged employees to get involved in the local community and give back. One of these activities was a s’mores party and cookout during National S’mores Month to bring employees together and help The Cabbage Patch Settlement House, a Louisville nonprofit that helps at-risk youth. Additionally, the agency donated boxes of school supplies for the children and families of The Cabbage Patch who were facing financial strain due to the pandemic. Following the catastrophic tornadoes in western Kentucky in December 2021, the agency hosted an internal donation drive that assisted community members impacted by the outbreak.
The annual Best Places to Work initiative is hosted by The Kentucky Chamber of Commerce and the Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management (KYSHRM). The selection process is based on an assessment of the company’s employee policies, procedures and the results of an internal employee survey. The competition is an annual initiative designed to motivate Kentucky companies to establish a great environment for employees.
On Thursday, June 9, the winners and their final rankings will be announced at an awards dinner at the Central Bank Center in Lexington. To learn more about Best Places to Work in Kentucky, visit www.bestplacestoworkky.com/.
