Evoke Health Offices Awarded Best Places to Work for the Seventh Time

December 2017 – Evoke Health Philadelphia and Evoke Health New York have once again been awarded Crain’s Top 100 “Best Places to Work.” Evoke Health Philadelphia is being recognized for the fourth year, ranking 26th among large employers statewide in Pennsylvania. This is also the third recognition for Evoke Health New York, ranking 32nd out of the top 100 companies in NYC this year.

Companies from a full range of industries entered this evaluation designed and managed by Best Companies Group to identify and honor the best places of employment. Selection and ranking is based upon a combined score from a two-part process. The first part is worth 25% of the total score and includes an overall evaluation of company policies, practices, philosophies, systems, and demographics. The second larger portion of the score (75%) focuses on the employee experience, using an anonymous qualitative survey.

“This is an industry that lives and dies on talent, and from the very beginning, we wanted to build an agency with a people-first culture where people can contribute and be a part of building something amazing while building their careers as well,” explains CEO & Founder Reid Connolly.

Time and again, the feedback received around what the staff loves about Evoke is the people they work with, and the sense of pride they have in the work achieved together. In addition to offering competitive packages, key benefits, and office amenities, Evoke attracts—and more importantly retains—top talent by fostering a deeper sense of community among staff.

“No matter what their role or level of seniority, we want everyone to feel a sense of ownership and empowerment in this agency,” states President Tom Donnelly. “We are always looking for ways to encourage people to contribute their ideas for the agency, as well as realizing their individual potential.”

A prime example of this sense of ownership was the CO+LAB Mentorship Program, which was developed and launched this year by employees, for employees. The program partners junior and senior staff members in quarterly cycles to facilitate mentorship, provide exposure to other disciplines, and inspire new ideas that keep the agency moving forward.

“Evoke Health is unlike any other place that I have worked before. It’s comprised of genuine individuals, whose passion for what we do makes those around them constantly strive to remain the best in the industry,” says Elissa Sherman, EVP, Client Partner. With the agency’s impressive growth to date, Evoke offers its staff abundant opportunities to take on new challenges that further shape and grow their careers.

“How do I know that Evoke Health is one of the best places to work? I love coming in every day knowing that I will have the opportunity to partner with super smart, passionate team members on projects that impact the health of our world. Rewarding? Yes. Challenging? Yep. Fun? You bet,” adds Emily Spilko, SVP, Group Creative Director.
