Advertising Age Names Hanapin Marketing as one of the 2017 Top Ten Places to Work in Advertising & Media
Bloomington, Indiana November 14, 2017 – Hanapin Marketing was named as one of the 2017 Top Ten Ad Age Best Places to Work, it was announced this week by Advertising Age. Hanapin was among only 50 companies nationally selected for the list and ranks 8th. The award adds to Hanapin’s growing accolades as a great place to work nationally and within Indiana, with the Company also named on Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces list and Indiana’s Best Places to Work list.
Hanapin’s workforce has continued to grow significantly over recent years. Last year in 2016, the Company hired 23 new full-time employees and to date, 10 new full-time employees have already been hired this year. Having been awarded $150,000 in training grants through the Indiana Economic Development Corporation earlier this year, more high-wage jobs will be created in the coming year. Attractive benefits, like paid parental leave for both mothers and fathers, 20 paid vacation days after working for a year, and several internal and external training opportunities showcase a supportive work environment that fosters both team and individual growth, as well as work-life harmony.
“We were overjoyed after placing 29th on the list last year, and to find out that we jumped up to #8 on this prestigious list is an incredible testament to our culture of excellence and continual improvement. We look to position ourselves as one of the best in the Marketing industry through our staff of knowledge experts, our client services and performance, and our culture. Winning this award helps to confirm we are taking the right steps, and I am proud to see such an intelligent and passionate team recognized by this esteemed governing body,” said Director of HR, Rebecca Reott.
In the wake of these recent successes, Hanapin is in the process of expanding its physical footprint as well as its headcount. Over the next 2 months, more meeting and desk space will be created to accommodate a growing team and increasing client list, which already includes big brands like The Weather Channel, Home Depot, Icelandair, and Show Carnival, and more onsite client visits to Bloomington. The new buildout expands one of two of Hanapin’s offices in the Showers Building in downtown Bloomington , adding 1,840 more square footage to the space.
