Harmelin Media Named One of the Best Places to Work by Ad Age for 2021

PHILADELPHIA, PA – Harmelin Media is proud to announce it has been named one of Ad Age’s Best Places to Work in 2021.


Ad Age, a trusted must-read for decision makers across the marketing and media landscape, unveiled its 2021 Best Places to Work this week. This is their annual ranking of companies that lead the pack in benefits, culture, and other key factors.

The most rewarding aspect in this honor is that Harmelin’s rankings are based on feedback from its staff, whose ratings, and written comments about their Harmelin experience earned this accolade during a year in which all companies struggled with navigating a global pandemic that directly challenged normal day-to-day business practices.

Mary Meder, President of Harmelin Media, echoed this pride: “This award is a validation of the hard work that so many people have put in to make Harmelin a special place in Philadelphia to come to work. The fact that we won during a pandemic, when so much craziness was going on around us, that is even more special.”

In Harmelin’s 38-year history in Philadelphia, its commitment to their employees and clients has always been the top priority. Through a concentration on internal industry training initiatives, diversity awareness, and a healthy work/life balance, over one-third of their employees have been with the agency more than 10 years.

This employee continuity leads to client retention and is a key factor why Harmelin has over 20 clients who have stayed with Harmelin for over 20 years.

For years, Harmelin has conducted internal employee surveys and has done its best to make continual improvements based upon that feedback and has no plans to deviate from this proven effort. “Most importantly, we are not a company that rests on our laurels,” says Mary. “We may be a Best Place to Work in 2021, but we will continue our ongoing efforts to improve our workplace and to retain the amazing people who give so much of themselves every day for this company.”
