Why Hanapin is one of the Best Places to Work in Bloomington
Bloomington, Indiana May 1, 2019 – Last night, April 30, Hanapin Marketing was named as one of the Top 3 Best Places to Work in Indiana, landing on the list alongside Oliver Winery, and Weddle Bros. Constructions Co., also based in Bloomington.
Hanapin has won both regionally and nationally for our culture for several years in a row now and for good reason – we’ve focused significantly on our company culture from the top down. Consistent training builds employees up to be successful professionals, be lifelong learners, and we also encourage them to give back to their community. A lot of time is spent recruiting and hiring the right people on the front end that exhibit our core values, and investing in them in the long run. The time and effort spent in recruiting, training, and above all, providing a supportive and productive environment has led to a high employee retention rate.
“I can enthusiastically say that this is the best place I have ever worked. The atmosphere here is positive, supportive, and everyone works toward the shared vision of being the best at what we do, exceeding our customer’s expectations, and being a place employees want to work long-term. I feel trusted to make decisions about how I do my job, drawing on my own creativity and resourcefulness, and have the same confidence in my co-workers.” says Lauren Reiser, Senior Accounting Clerk.
We maintain a retention rate far above the industry average of 62% (ours currently sits at 89%) because we care and focus on our team’s well-being. Flexible scheduling options allow our team to work 4.5-day work weeks. #2nd2nd, a made up holiday where the office closes on the 2nd Friday of the 2nd month of each quarter, gives our team four 3-day weekends to relax and rejuvenate. Employee benefits exceed industry standards, including paid parental leave, adoption assistance, unlimited PTO for doctor appointments, and unlimited increments for sick employees without using personal PTO. A combination of onsite, part-time remote, and fully remote options allow our team to thrive in the best environment for them.
But our culture’s real superpower is the feedback we consistently seek from our team. We ask company-wide questions through TinyPulse, hold leadership coffees, and have weekly open office hours hosted by our President and HR. We believe strongly that our agency will only be able to improve if every voice is heard and valued.
“Too many workplaces, particularly those in the agency world, think that building a great culture means things like free food, ping pong tournaments, happy hours, and contests. Those are nice to have (and we have those as “perks” as well), but those aren’t the things that keep employees happy. It’s the supportive environment, encouraging feedback and listening to that feedback, the collaboration among team members, and professional investment we put towards our employees that make our culture thrive and retain our people. That’s why we are one of the Best Places to Work in Bloomington, in Indiana and in the Nation.” – Jeff Allen, President of Hanapin Marketing.
Hanapin is currently hiring for a number of positions including an Account Director, Digital Marketing Associate, Paid Social Account Manager, Paid Social Associate, Paid Search Account Manager, and Senior Paid Search Account Manager.
