Mintz + Hoke Earns 2016 Best Places to Work Award

Connecticut advertising agency Mintz + Hoke has been selected as one of the Best Places to Work in Connecticut for 2016, earning the top spot for an advertising and marketing agency and fourth place overall in the small/medium size employers category by the Hartford Business Journal and Best Companies Group.

Now in its eleventh year in Connecticut, the Best Places survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers state-wide in Connecticut, benefiting the state's economy, workforce, and businesses.  This is the first year Mintz + Hoke has participated, placing 4th in the rankings in the small/medium-size employers category (15-199 US employees). The Best Places to Work list is comprised of 40 companies split into two categories: 24 small/medium-sized companies (15-199 US employees) and 16 large-sized companies (200 or more US employees). 

Best Places to Work honorees are determined based solely on a confidential two-part survey process. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Connecticut, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.

“We’re especially proud of being named a ‘Best Place to Work’ because it recognizes that Mintz + Hoke is so much more than an ad agency in Avon with creative people and strategic marketing pros,” said Ron Perine, president. “Since we were founded more than 40 years ago, we’ve built teams of smart and adaptable challenge-seekers who want to learn, grow and succeed together. It’s something we look forward to doing for the next 40 years and more.”

The Hartford Business Journal published the complete list of Top Workplaces on March 28. For more information about the Best Places to Work and Best Companies visit
