SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Nov. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Shopper Marketing leader The Mars Agency announces today that it has been named to Crain’s Cool Places to Work in Michigan ranking.

“We are honored to be recognized by Crain’s. We look at investments in our work environment as more than employee perks; they are investments in our culture which impacts everything we do. Our culture makes us unique, inspires us and drives competitive advantage – all helping us to deliver on our purpose of driving growth for our clients, our community and ourselves,” commented Rob Rivenburgh, Chief Operating Officer of The Mars Agency.

Crain’s Cool Places to Work is managed by the Best Companies Group of Harrisburg, PA. Applicants complete an employer questionnaire, and the employees of each applicant company are surveyed. The weighted results of the two determine winners across three company-size categories.

“It is very gratifying to know that our team’s input factored into the results and that they value initiatives like our Global Citizenship Day, individual volunteer days, agency outings, and our Town Hall meetings. Most importantly though, we know that our people, or Martians as we like to call ourselves, are at the core of our success and the heart of what makes The Mars Agency a cool place to work,” addedKen Barnett, Global CEO.
