Simpler Media Group Earns 2022-23 Great Place to Work Certification™

The B2B technology producer earns this distinction with 100 percent of employees reporting that SMG is a great place to work.

Simpler Media Group (SMG) is proud to be Certified™ by Great Place to Work® for the first time. The prestigious award is based entirely on what current employees say about their experience working at SMG. This year, 100% of employees said it’s a great place to work – compared to 57% of employees at a typical U.S.-based company.

Great Place to Work® is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention and increased innovation.

“Great Place to Work Certification™ isn’t something that comes easily – it takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience,” said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, vice president of global recognition at Great Place to Work. “It’s the only official recognition determined by employees’ real-time reports of their company culture. Earning this designation means that Simpler Media Group is one of the best companies to work for in the country.”

“SMG is thrilled to be recognized and become Great Place to Work-Certified™. As a company we are consistently working to elevate our employees’ experience of being a team member and doing our best to incorporate employee feedback into our practices,” said SMG’s CEO, Brice Dunwoodie. “Having founded SMG in 2003, I can personally attribute our continued success directly to the initiative, dedication and self-motivation of our employees. We’re celebrating this recognition, but mostly, we’re thankful for having an outstanding group of people to work alongside each day.”

According to Great Place to Work research, job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a Certified great workplace. Additionally, employees at Certified workplaces are 93% more likely to look forward to coming to work, and are twice as likely to be paid fairly, earn a fair share of the company’s profits and have a fair chance at promotion.

This acknowledgment comes on the heels of SMG being named to the 2022 Inc 5000 list as one of America’s fastest-growing private companies.
