2015 Top Places to Work in PR: MSLGROUP

MSLGROUP is committed to the fair, equal and respectful treatment of all its employees. In 2014, for the second year in a row, MSLGROUP's operations in the U.S. scored a perfect 100 points in the Corporate Equality Index (CEI), a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to LGBT workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation.

MSLGROUP adopts an open door policy where all employees feel empowered to approach senior management on any and all topics. The President NA, Managing Directors and senior leaders speak regularly with all staff at monthly staff meetings and are accessible for formal and informal 1:1 discussions. MSLGROUP also leverages the use of a closed-circuit, network-wide town hall, video digital chats, video blogs and WebEx to ensure all employees have the opportunity to hear from senior management.

The company culture celebrates opportunities to participate in new business and diverse experiences as well as formal programs to encourage employee community engagement, professional development and skill development. Professional association membership and tuition reimbursement is also offered to all employees.

MSLGROUP also celebrates collaboration and its best-in-class creative storytellers with an annual global competition. Two winning teams in each region are rewarded with the experience of a lifetime - a week-long personal development trip to one of the 100+ MSLGROUP offices around the world. To compete, employees collaborate with others in teams to submit a 2-minute video that articulates an exciting, big idea.

MSLGROUP Culture Club arranges activities, including sailing local waters to attending local music and theater events, to week-long staff appreciation activities (i.e., massages, happy hours, contests) to reward teams and encourage employees to take the opportunity to recharge, connect with each other and have fun.
