Award honors leading local companies ranked highest by employees
DURHAM, NC — Adwerx, a Durham-based digital advertising company, has been named one of the area’s Best Places to Work by Triangle Business Journal. This sought-after annual award recognizes area businesses that create highly engaging work environments. This is the first year that Adwerx has received this accolade.
Winners were selected based on employee survey results that included questions about communication and resources, personal engagement, and trust in leadership. Triangle Business Journal worked with Quantum Workplace to analyze and rank results determining the 50 best businesses in the Triangle. To be eligible for the award, a business must have at least 10 Triangle employees and have operations in at least one of the 16 counties that comprise the region.
The company has been on an upward trajectory since it began operations, and shows no sign of slowing. In the past two years, Adwerx staff has increased nearly 70% to almost 100 employees, and the overall business has grown 60% in 2018 alone. The company has appeared on the Inc. 5000 list of America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies, and earlier this year, Inc. Magazine named Adwerx to its Best Workplaces list for the second year in a row.
“We are honored to receive this local distinction based on feedback from our dedicated and talented employees,” said Adwerx CEO Jed Carlson. “Our employees are our most valuable asset, and we’re very proud to have such a strong culture.”
It’s the focus on culture and the company’s core values that contributes to the high level of employee engagement and satisfaction. Adwerx seeks to empower its employees through continued professional development, and fosters a collaborative spirit among employees by encouraging them to share ideas “beyond their pay grade.” In addition, the company personally recognizes personal and professional contributions in-house and on social media.
Adwerx is headquartered in Durham’s historic American Tobacco Campus. They are currently hiring for several positions on the engineering, marketing, enterprise sales, and customer support teams. To learn more, please visit their careers site.
