Merkle (www.merkle.com), a leading customer relationship marketing (CRM) firm and the nation’s largest privately-held agency, announced that its Denver office has been named to The Denver Post’s Top Workplaces list for 2013. The Top Workplaces program, run by Workplace Dynamics, is set- up to recognize companies that have a great work environment in the Denver Metro area. The evaluation, conducted through a 22-question employee survey, is based purely on employees’ opinions of their companies.
The evaluation takes into account employee benefits, support of the local community, employee perks, and the strong connection between employees and the company. Most importantly, a top workplace is an organization where the employees feel inspired and are given the room to create innovative work. At Merkle, employees take pride in the world-class solutions they are providing and strive to be innovative leaders in the market. Merkle’s culture reflects a passion for life and a drive for excellence. Merkle leaders are meticulous about surrounding themselves with team members who have similar core beliefs, values and attributes.
In the Denver office, as in all of Merkle’s locations, employees work together to build a great company; where exceptionally talented people want to be and where each employee is excited to go to work. The pervasive culture is rooted in the notion that business is personal. Merkle opened its sixth U.S. office in Denver in 2007 and currently houses over 100 employees in this location. The decision to expand into the Denver market was driven by the area’s large population of skilled professionals and by the growing employee presence there.
“I am excited about the recognition of Merkle’s office as a top workplace in the Denver Metro area,” said Dave Paulus, executive vice president in the Denver office. “At Merkle, our culture doesn’t just reflect what we do-it defines who we are. It’s our way of life. The Denver office mirrors the seven core attributes of Merkle’s culture: smart, curious, sense of urgency, committed to vision, passionate, achiever and fun.”
