The ‘20 Best Magazine Publishing Companies to Work For’ Announced
Publishing Executive released the results of its first annual “20 Best Magazine Publishing Companies to Work For” study in the October issue of the magazine. The study, conducted in conjunction with Accelara Publishing Research, ranked Phoenix-based McMurry Inc. as the No. 1 magazine publishing company to work for, with an overall rating of 95.2 out of 100. In addition to the overall rating, companies also received scores in individual categories, including Satisfying High-Performance Company, Fair & Open Work Environment, and Personal Benefits.
McMurry, which publishes more than 60 million copies of custom media titles each year for more than 235 corporate customers, was lauded by its employees for its benefits package, great teamwork and camaraderie and a management team that trusts and shares openly with employees. Rounding out the top five were Wells Publishing Inc., Rodale Inc., Corry Publishing Inc. and Meredith Corp.
“The study was a major undertaking, but one that we felt would have great benefits for the industry,” says Noelle Skodzinski, editor in chief of Publishing Executive. “We had an amazing response this year, and it was really competitive. The companies that made the top 20 list truly excel in certain areas, primarily in showing respect and support for their employees and the need for balance between their employees’ work and personal lives. The study will be a great tool for publishing executives looking for great places to work, as well as for management at companies looking to improve employee morale.”
