2015 Top Places to Work in PR: Current

Current prides itself on being entrepreneurial and collaborative. While it spans five offices, Current operates as one business unit – eliminating the friction that often arises when each office has its own P&L, protecting staff and revenue often at the detriment of the greater good.

This “One Team, One Dream” approach permeates Current’s culture, which is not to say they don’t honor the individual. Current is a collaborative team of individuals – real people with real, unique and different passions – who happen to all be passionate about creating genuine connections between their clients and the people they are trying to reach. They balance an intense drive to succeed with ample doses of recreation and fun.

Growth opportunities are available to those who demonstrate success and leadership in their roles at Current. In addition to an annual review process, employees have the opportunity to be promoted each quarter. With talent its most important asset, Current looks to promote from within as the agency continues to grow.

Current offers a Mind, Body, Soul program to promote work-life harmony. The program promotes experiences that enhance creativity and cultural awareness (mind); health and wellness (body); and contributions to the community (soul). Expenses are reimbursed for things like cultural events, gym memberships and contributions to recognized charities.

Additional benefits Current offers include flexible work schedules, paid maternity and paternity leave, adoption assistance, national gym membership and retail discounts, and identity theft protection in addition to medical, dental, vision, disability and life insurance coverage.

Current also regularly hands out The Gnomy, a monthly award recognizing individuals who have impressed and inspired their peers with recent work. The winner(s) is unveiled during the monthly All Staff Meeting, given a $100 gift card, and holds the title and physical award until the next month.
