Rochester-based brand experience agency MSM was named a Democrat & Chronicle Rochester Top Workplace for the seventh consecutive year.

large-D_CTopWorkplaces2020(Rochester, NY (April 3, 2020) Brand experience agency MSM has been a part of the Rochester business community since 1993, and was named a 2020 Democrat & Chronicle Rochester Top Workplace. This marks MSM’s seventh consecutive year as an honoree, having made the cut every year since the award program’s inception.

The Democrat & Chronicle partners with Philadelphia-based employee research and consulting firm, Energage, to determine the Top Workplaces in Rochester, NY. The process is based on an anonymous, scientific survey of employees who rate several areas of their workplace culture. The results of which provide participating employers insights into what makes their workplace culture unique, and potential areas for improvement. MSM had an 88% response rate, with 72 of the company’s 82 employees voluntarily participating.

Any and all businesses in the Rochester area with at least 35 employees were eligible, and a record number of 100 employers agreed to participate in this year’s survey. Among these 100 companies, 66 made the cut and were announced in a press release published on April 1st. The official ranked list was scheduled to be announced at a live awards ceremony and dinner in March, which has been postponed until a future date, to be announced.

Creative Peeps_2019MSM typically celebrates this honor each year with a company-wide luncheon, which is also postpon
ed given current circumstances; however, MSM Founder and CEO Donna Shultz is excited to officially celebrate the big milestone once employees are back in the office. Making the Top Workplaces list is a major accomplishment, especially given the recognition is based solely on employee input. “Being named a Top Workplace seven years in a row is a true testament to how amazing our staff is and the culture they’ve helped build. I can’t wait for us all to reunite and celebrate in the near future,” said Shultz.
