BuzzBee Company named one of Seattle Business magazine’s 100 Best Companies to Work For 2015
Seattle, WA — July 1, 2015
When you boil it down, effective marketing is about doing top-notch, impactful work. But there’s a lot behind the scenes that contributes to this success, special nuances that can turn a group of consultants, marketers and storytellers into an amazing agency. What gets people out of bed and keeps them coming back?
We’re in this business to do great work with great people for great clients—not to win awards. But when we do win awards, we can’t help but reflect and toast each other’s awesomeness. When we learned we were named one of Seattle Business magazine’s 100 Best Companies to Work For 2015, we asked our staff why. After all, they took the surveys that made this award possible.
“Our horizontal org structure makes decision-making a transparent and inclusive process, and that’s a big deal,” said content strategist Nick Louie. “Structuring teams this way also makes it possible to enlist the right talent on the right projects. We aren’t held back by team silos and this helps us do great work.”
“I’m impressed with how everyone goes above and beyond for each other,” said designer Joey Ellis. “This certainly isn’t the team dynamic at all companies. Talented and compassionate people make all the difference and we have that in spades.”
Clearly, we fancy ourselves a unique agency. We specialize in helping some of the world’s most innovative companies move to and capitalize on ‘3rd Platform’ technology advances in cloud, mobile, social and big data. But we also understand our team, our lifeblood, is motivated by more than just competitive salaries and benefits. A culture of leading by example, an inspiring work environment, exciting learning opportunities and rolling kegerators are just a few reasons why our people are proud to work here. And all revelry aside, we’re truly thankful.
In the words of our CEO Michele Keeffe, “Thank you to all of our employees and clients who made this award a reality. Collectively, they make BuzzBee what it is today.”
