For the third consecutive year, Hanson Dodge Creative has been awarded a Top Workplaces honor by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The integrated marketing agency is ranked No. 14 out of 75 southeastern Wisconsin companies in the newspaper’s 2016 Top Small Workplaces section.

The annual list is based on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC. The survey covers numerous aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution and connection.

"Hanson Dodge Creative is dedicated to being a destination employer for talented people who want to challenge themselves and each other to produce groundbreaking work. We achieve transformational results for our clients, and have fun doing it,” HDC President Tim Dodge said. “The fact that our employees feel confident in the company’s direction and leadership is a huge honor.”

This year’s list includes the top 25 large companies (500 or more employees in southeastern Wisconsin), the top 50 midsize companies (150 to 499 employees in the region) and the top 75 small companies (with 50 to 149 employees in the region).

"The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
