DENVER, COLORADO — June 29, 2021 — Catalyst Marketing Agency is proud to be Certified™ by Great Place to Work® for the first time in the agency’s five-year history. The prestigious award is based entirely on what current employees say about their experience working at Catalyst. Great Place to Work® is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience, and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention, and increased innovation.

“Great Place to Work Certification™ isn’t something that comes easily — it takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience,” said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, vice president of global recognition at Great Place to Work. “It’s the only official recognition determined by employees’ real-time reports of their company culture. Earning this designation means that Catalyst Marketing Agency is one of the best companies to work for in the country.”

We are thrilled to become Great Place to Work-Certified™ as we consider employee experience a top priority and continue to look for ways to foster an environment where people are excited to jump out of bed and contribute to an amazing place to work every day,” said Catalyst Co-Founder and CEO Gem Swartz. “We owe our continued success to our team of rockstar employees. We celebrate and thank them for all they do to earn this recognition.”

In 2020, Catalyst created Catalyst for Change, a diversity, equity, and inclusion program aimed at increasing internal and external diversity and awareness at Catalyst. In addition, the agency implemented quarterly sensitivity training for all employees with Project PAVE, challenging and teaching us how to do better day by day. Catalyst also supports its employees’ wellness through a program that reimburses activities that aid and improve the employee’s health and wellbeing. Each employee has the autonomy to choose the activities that best support their own unique healthy lifestyle.

According to Great Place to Work research, job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a Certified great workplace. Additionally, employees at Certified workplaces are 93% more likely to look forward to coming to work, and are twice as likely to be paid fairly, earn a fair share of the company’s profits, and have a fair chance at promotion.
