BOSTON (October 2, 2017) – Cone Communications, a public relations and marketing agency, is pleased to announce it has been named a Top Place to Work in PR by PR News for the third consecutive year. This award recognizes agencies and organizations that match their outstanding in-house and client PR work with exceptional efforts to support employees’ personal development and professional success.
This important award win comes on the heels of Cone’s recent relocation of its headquarters to a high tech and light-filled open office space in the heart of Boston’s Innovation District. The new space allows for a more inclusive work environment that is centered around the agency’s values of Teamwork, Passion, Intellectual Curiosity, Commitment to Excellence and Integrity.
Cone’s robust employee engagement programs align with its dedication to Always Making a Difference℠ for businesses, brands and society. The agency supports a company-wide “Day of Service” and “Hours for Good” program which allows employees to dedicate four hours of work time each month to volunteer opportunities. The agency is also devoted to helping its employees achieve a work life balance, with a progressive flexibility.
Cone offers a training and skills development program called “Cone College,” through which employees share their insights and expertise with the staff. In addition to the Cone College and outside training sessions, Cone recognizes the benefits of helping employees who wish to improve their skill set through advanced educational development programs by offering tuition reimbursement for all full-time employees. Employees can also seek guidance, coaching and advice from a senior colleague regarding personal and professional development through the Cone Mentor Program. As part of Cone’s commitment to professional and career development, Cone offers multiple levels of financial opportunities to employees, including a New Business Referral Program and an Employee Referral Bonus.
“Beyond our dedication to providing our employees with both personal and professional growth and programs that align with those goals, this award also recognizes the intrinsic value of the work we do here at Cone,” says Alison DaSilva, executive vice president, Cone Communications. “Our employees are passionate about Always Making a Difference – and every day we are delivering business, brand and societal impact for our clients and the world at large.”
