2016 Top Places to Work in PR: Exponent PR

Exponent’s collaborative culture and exceptional benefits are the foundation of the agency and its competitive advantage. Employee culture is based on a deep and caring respect for the agency’s people, as well as their families and lives outside of work. This informs and inspires everything Exponent does, especially the lengthy list of perks and programs that support employees and their families.

The agency’s core values include courage, passion, integrity and partnership, and greatly align with internal culture. A completely open workspace (there are no enclosed offices) encourages the cross-pollination of ideas and ensures communication across all departments. Freedom of thought, experimentation and innovation are also highly encouraged.

Exponent also offers a number of health and wellness benefits. Workplace culture is incredibly bike-friendly, and many benefits cater to the employees who bike to work each day. There is an in-house shower and locker room, as well as a bike shop stocked with tools for easy tune-ups.

Outside of the office, employees are encouraged to explore the outdoors with complimentary state park passes. The Exponent Wellness Fund supports employees’ active lifestyles by offering an annual stipend to fund a fitness-related activity. During the summer, the agency’s rooftop plays host to a variety of free fitness classes like yoga, Pilates and cardio boot camp. Exponent also subsidizes private shiatsu massages up to three times a week in 15, 30 or 60-minute sessions.
