Ad Age | 2020 Best Places to Work!

Code and Theory has been named one of Ad Age's 2020 Best Places to Work!

Originally published on Ad Age on January 13, 2020

Ad Age Best Places to Work 2020 Honors 50 companies that have figured out what works. The winning workplaces reflect the highest overall numerical scores based on an analysis of questionnaires submitted by employers and survey responses from thousands of their employees.

Among key takeaways:

What’s most important to employees: Unsurprisingly, core employee benefits (fair pay, health insurance, paid time off) are must-haves.

What most affects the workplace ratings: Employee benefits alone don’t translate to a high workplace rating. Instead, company culture and a supportive environment are most likely to be associated with high marks.

Don’t overplay perks: Many employers offer a host of perks, such as providing free food or allocating space in the office for games and relaxation. But relative to other areas like employee development and engagement, perks matter less to employees.

What distinguishes top performers: Companies that invest in their employees both at work and beyond the office yield big dividends. Offering unique extras will improve workplace scores—from family leave and learning stipends to mentorship programs and time off to give back to the community.
