It takes a margarita to keep an employee happy, at least according to a recent press release by Weber Shandwick, that includes the popular drink as a “benefit” for employees in its Dallas offices.
Weber Shandwick Dallas is this year’s best place to work, according to the Dallas Business Journal. The company won the recognition after an independent survey of Weber Shandwick Dallas employees covering topics such as personal growth, professional opportunities and employee recognition.
The Dallas office is led by Neil Nowlin, who expressed his enthusiasm for the accolade in an official press statement:
“We’re focused on building an engaging, inspiring and rewarding environment for our team in Dallas because it helps us bring fresh thinking and the best ideas to our clients. It’s a tremendous honor to be recognized for these efforts and a testament to the amazing culture that everyone in Dallas works hard to maintain.”
Weber Shandwick provides employees in its Dallas office with numerous benefits, including breakfast tacos, margaritas (hopefully not for breakfast) and Putt Putt tournaments. There is also a health program that reimburses employees who invest in health and wellness activities (if they still manage to go on after all those margaritas). Last but not least, employees are offered opportunities to pursue professional goals through additional paid days off and tuition reimbursement.
“Our goal is to be recognized as an employer of choice in every market we serve,” said Cathy Calhoun, president, Weber Shandwick North America. “That requires offering our people unique and challenging professional opportunities, investing in ways to connect our employee communities through our custom-built internal social platform and creating a culture that recognizes and rewards exceptional performance. I’m incredibly proud of the team in Dallas for this achievement.”
Weber Shandwick has been recognized as a best place to work in key markets throughout the US, including Chicago and Minneapolis/St. Paul. Details about tacos and margaritas in other offices have not been disclosed.
