Sparks Named a 2019 “Best Place to Work in Events” by Event Marketer
August 20, 2019
Sparks earns a spot on Event Marketer’s list of the 2019 Best Places to Work in Events. The annual Best Places to Work in Events program honors the agencies and partners delivering top work experiences, providing the highest level of employee support, and who have exceptional office environments and cultures across the industry.
Issuing a call for 2019 Best Places to Work in Events nominations earlier this year (and receiving hundreds of submissions), Event Marketer chooses their top nominees. They then select the winning companies exclusively on the basis of their employees’ responses to an Employee Engagement Survey sent via Quantum Workplace, the leading global employee engagement consultancy. Employee responses dictate each company’s ranking and overall score.
The consistent theme among the 2019 Best Places to Work in Events? People—specifically, providing support and a space for employees to grow.
“What we found this year is that companies are working harder than ever to retain talent, not just with sweet office spaces and competitive benefits packages, but by supporting their people better in their career journeys and personal lives.” notes Event Marketer. “Career development programs, strong CSR missions, flexible schedules and other offerings related to work/life balance are among the top reasons employees love their companies. Employees today want to feel they can grow with a company, both professionally and personally.”
Sparks ranks among the top companies with more than 250 employees with a profile featuring the below perspectives from company employees:
“Before coming to Sparks I worked at more than a few companies, both large and small. I have never experienced a company like Sparks.”
“I am proud to be a ‘Sparkie.’” “I have a real sense of belonging here and am impressed by everyone I work with.”
“Working here has helped cause a shift in my overall well-being… I’m growing as a person.”
