Employees Name Us to Top Workplaces List

July 05, 2018

They like us, they really, really like us!

For the fourth year in a row, our St. Louis-based employees have named us one of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Top Workplaces. This year, we placed #12 in the “large category,” made up of companies with more than 500 employees.

The rankings are based on survey results from our employees, and we’re pleased to know we’re making them happy. As a people company, we’re especially glad to be recognized by our own people.

“Maritz is incredibly proud to be included among the Top Workplaces in St. Louis,” said Dennis Hummel, Maritz vice chairman. “We’re a people company, and we make it our business to understand the needs and wants of all people, including our clients and employees. It’s an honor and privilege to be recognized by our employees for our efforts to make Maritz a fun, flexible and community-oriented workplace.”

We strive to make work fun and rewarding while offering perks to allow for a better work/life balance. Maritz companies host recognition events, social hours and team-building activities.

We offer fun things to do on breaks, like ping pong and pool, and we offer flexible work arrangements that allow many employees to work from home regularly or when they need to.

We also realize that community service helps both the volunteers and those in need, so we give each employee 12 paid hours each year to donate to one of the myriad organizations we partner with, like the United Way, the Arts and Education Council, Teach for America and more.

But most importantly, we hire interesting and enthusiastic employees who make working here a blast. We couldn’t do it without each of them.
