What’s the main driver of success for an organization? It all starts with the people. They’re the foundation and key to concurring your business’s goals and in today’s climate company culture is often your best competitive advantage. To keep a company’s culture sustainable, you must keep your employees engaged, which can be no easy feat.
Here at PAN Communications, we have established and maintained a high-level of trust, transparency and support for each other. Creating this kind of healthy and sought-after culture takes work, and PAN makes sure that each new employee that walks through our doors shares the same core values as defined and outlined here. Getting to this point – achieving the Top Company Culture recognition from Entrepreneur three years in a row – didn’t happen by accident. It takes passionate, driven and fearless individuals working together to achieve a common mission.
So, how do PAN’s employees feel about their culture and being recognized by Entrepreneur for it? Read the quotes below and check out the press release here.
If you walked around the office, polling folks on their favorite thing about PAN, it’s actually pretty entertaining to see how quickly they reply, “the people.” But it’s not just the friendships, the PANPubs, the impromptu cube debates – it’s how all that good stuff is balanced with a real sense of professional investment in each other. People want to actively see their peers, leaders and teammates succeed and will do whatever they can to help them achieve their goals. What does an Entrepreneur Top Company Culture three-peat mean to me? Honestly, just kind of seems like a no-brainer. – Cameron Brody, Senior Account Executive, Boston
We opened the doors to PANhattan last year with a core focus being to extend our culture into the heart of the New York tech scene. In a little over one year, we’ve nearly tripled our headcount, and our local client base, which is a testament to the benefits of being a place where likeminded practitioners flock to. – Ryan Wallace, VP & General Manager, New York City
This recognition is such great validation for PAN’s culture. We say it all the time that PAN is what it is because of the people and culture – awards like this go to show that it’s not all talk; we truly do have an award-winning culture and it’s felt agency-wide. Each culture award win makes me more and more grateful to work at PAN. – Samantha Rushovich, Senior Account Executive, Boston
One of my favorite parts about PAN is lunch time. Most days, you can find a good chunk of the office huddled around the common table sharing stories – both personal and professional. Even if it’s just for a few minutes, we try to take the time out of the day to regroup and eat together. To me, that speaks loudly about the type of culture we have here at PAN. At the heart of it is good people who just want to spend time together and get work done. – Kristina Richmann, Senior Account Supervisor, San Francisco
This recognition for PAN represents the hard work and dedication the entire executive team puts in for all employees – at every level. PAN puts employee growth and development at the top of the priorities list and makes sure to create an office environment that is fun and collaborative – these are the things that stand out most to me and make me proud to work at PAN! – Laura Beauregard, Senior Account Supervisor, Orlando
As a working mom, I never thought I’d find an agency that would support my personal life as much as my professional life. PAN is so unique in how committed it is to employee development and growth, without it coming at the expense of balance. – Catherine Doyle, VP and General Manager, San Francisco
