GroundFloor Media Recognized as Best Place to Work in Denver
Company’s work-life blended environment is recognized for third consecutive year
DENVER, CO – (November 25, 2008) – For the third consecutive year, GroundFloor Media Inc., a Denver-based public relations agency, has been recognized by the Denver Business Journal as one of the Best Place to Work in Denver in the small company category. In 2007 GroundFloor Media was recognized as the No. 1 place to work in Denver, and now in 2008 the agency was recognized in the number No. 2 position.
When Laura Love founded the public relations agency in 2001, she did so with the idea that she would only hire senior-level practitioners who would work as peers and offer cost-effective, results-driven public relations and communications services to clients with great stories to tell. Additionally, Love’s management style continues to prove to be as unique as the business mode. The non-traditional management style focuses on ensuring a blended work-life environment, peer-driven feedback and a supportive culture.
“I have been with GroundFloor Media for more than five years and I can’t imagine working anywhere else,” said Amy Moynihan, senior public relations manager. “I work with incredible clients and more importantly an unbelievable group of colleagues. In fact, this year I had my second child – a little girl – who was warmly welcomed into the GroundFloor Media family. I felt so lucky to return to work in such a supportive environment.”
GroundFloor Media's team members describe the management style as non-traditional with a commitment to ensuring a “blended” life where work, family and play are all successfully intertwined. GroundFloor Media’s attrition rate hovers around six percent, and the company’s culture is exemplified by practices including hiring only senior-level public relations professionals and maintaining a flexible mix of full-time employees and consultants. And, with professional growth opportunities in the form of peer learning, paid tuition to relevant classes, program fees for leadership programs and opportunities to hear outside speakers, employees can continue to build their knowledge and expertise in the public relations industry. Team building efforts have included a group trip to run half marathons in Phoenix and Las Vegas, building a house together through Habitat for Humanity, adopting a girl’s home in Sikkim, India and complimentary yoga classes.
“Prior to joining GroundFloor Media a little over a year ago, I heard a lot about the intangible qualities of the agency – a nurturing culture, collaborative teams, blended work-life balance, and an agency that was routinely described as a fantastic place to work,” said Collin Conaway, senior public relations manager of GroundFloor Media and a former client with Exclusive Resorts. “The intangibles aren’t just something people talk about – they are ever present. It really is the best place to work.”
