NEW YORK, Oct. 18, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Likeable Media, the award-winning, global social media firm, has been named one of the "Best Places to Work in New York City" for 2012 by Crain's New York Business.
"One of my main focuses has always been to create a truly likeable work environment with a focus on thought leadership, passion, and creativity. It is such an honor for Likeable to be recognized by Crain's New York Business and our employees as one of the best places to work in New York City," said Dave Kerpen, CEO of Likeable.
Crain's New York Business, in partnership with independent research firm Best Company Group, selected this year's winners based on the results of a confidential employee survey. Employees evaluated their companies in areas such as benefits, policies and the mission of their company. The survey also covered organizational leadership, planning, culture, training and development, and overall employee satisfaction.
"Likeable really is a learning organization and a family company," said Frank Emanuele, Content Strategist at Likeable. "We work as a team to learn and benefit from each other's experiences, but we're also all friends and we know how to have a good time together."
The firm's internal core value statement is: "We are driven, passionate, transparent, adaptable thought leaders. We are Likeable." Likeable has carried these core values from its start in 2006 when Kerpen and his wife, and now COO and President, Carrie Kerpen, were married at a local minor league ballpark. The wedding called "Our Field of Dreams," raised over $20,000 for charity and received coverage on ABC World News Tonight, CNBC On The Money, and hundreds of blogs and local newspapers.
"I've never worked for a company where I felt like all opinions were welcome and discussed as a team. Likeable is the epitome of transparency," said Becca Bellush, Content Manager of Likeable.
On Friday, November 30 Crain's New York Business will unveil the rankings of this year's honorees at an awards luncheon. The 2012 "Best Places to Work in New York City" winners are profiled online in alphabetical order and will be featured in the December 3, 2012 issue of Crain's New York Business. The two-time Inc. 500 Fastest Growing Private U.S. Company joins the ranks of Microsoft, Ernst & Young, New York Cares, and Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants. Likeable currently has offices in New York City, Boston, and Chicago.
