Brand Fever Walks the Employer Brand Talk & Wins Top 10 Best Places to Work

BF_Best Place to Work

On Friday, September 12th, Brand Fever piled into a crowded World Congress Center to see where we ranked as “Atlanta’s Best Places to Work,” a prestigious accolade bestowed by the Atlanta Business Chronicle.

Over plates of scrambled eggs and hash browns, the count down from 60th—to—6th place was intense and exhilarating. Landing in the top 10 of  “Atlanta’s Best Places to Work” was an incredible honor!

Interestingly, there is irony in this big win—more and more clients are coming to Brand Fever to define and articulate their employer brand story. According to Gallup, “an unengaged employee costs $3,400 for every $10,000” in salary? It’s a problem that our team has been solving for mid-market companies over the last two years. We have always believed that any rebrand is incomplete without full employee engagement. Recently, a prospective client looking for a new employee value proposition said, “We want our company to look like yours—it’s really clear you walk the talk.”

In celebration of our award and sharing creative ideas, we wanted to share a behind-the-scenes look at Brand Fever and what makes our organization such a great place to work:

  • A warm welcome. You will always be greeted by a welcome sign at our red front door.
  • Gifts. We love attending meetings with a red gift bag full of Brand Feverized fun; our favorites—red hots and fireballs.
  • Caffeine. Fresh ground coffee or espresso—always on.
  • Celebrations. It’s normal to find an explosion of red décor above your desk for awesomeness, birthdays or if you just need a lift.
  • Tuesday account reviews. Where we dive into each project and make sure it is being handled with excellence.
  • Community service. Roll up your sleeves and dig gardens for City of Refuge.
  • Beer and pizza. A must for project brainstorms. Or because it’s Friday.
