Chicago Tribune Names The Mx Group Among 2016’s Top 100 Workplaces

Nov 11, 2016

CHICAGO (November 11, 2016) — The Mx Group, a digital and demand generation agency, has been recognized as one of the Chicago Tribune’s 2016 Top 100 Workplaces. The company placed 23rd out of the 55 companies recognized in the small business category. Winners were selected based on an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics LLC, a leading research firm specializing in organizational health and workplace improvement. Only companies with exceptional scores in workplace culture and employee satisfaction were included in this exclusive list.

“To be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health,” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “And there’s no one better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day — the employees. Unless employees have a strong belief in where the organization is headed and feel that everyone is in it together, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

The Mx Group adds the Chicago Tribune’s Top 100 Workplaces honor to an extensive list of awards recognizing its workplace culture. The company has been named one of the Best Places to Work in Illinois for the past three consecutive years, and was recently named one of Chicago’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For®. These honors are thanks in part to the benefits, resources and opportunities The Mx Group offers its 100-plus employees. Along with a robust benefits package, the company provides flexible schedule options, an employee assistance program and paid parental leave, among other options. The Mx Group also prioritizes a culture of creativity and camaraderie, with company-wide activities like annual beanbag tournaments, trivia contests and a refrigerator stocked with craft beer.

“We’re deeply honored and proud to be included in the Chicago Tribune’s list of Top 100 Workplaces,” said Andy Mahler, CEO and co-founder of The Mx Group. “Our employees are the bedrock of our business, and we believe that if our team is thriving, our business thrives too. This award affirms that our continuous efforts to make The Mx Group a truly great place to work are paying off.”
