Falls & Co. Named a Top Workplace by The Plain Dealer for 2021

June 28, 2021

Falls & Co. has been named a 2021 Top Workplace in The Plain Dealer Top Workplaces.

We’re ecstatic to be among the top workplaces in Northeast Ohio. Of the nearly 1,800 companies invited to participate in the 12th annual contest, only 175 companies made this year’s list. But what is most special is that the award is based solely on the feedback from employees.

“I am so proud all our people and the culture we have built,” said Rob Falls, President and CEO of Falls & Co. “We provide a great place to work so professionals can grow, thrive and succeed, which ultimately results in outstanding work for our clients.

In early 2021, The Plain Dealer enlisted Energage, a culture technology firm that specializes in employee engagement and workplace improvement research, to conduct anonymous employee surveys to gain insights into the company and culture. Energage then ranked the total responses for companies in large, mid-size and small categories.

The awards were announced on June 27th, 2021 in a special Sunday supplement in The Plain Dealer.  

This year, questions also focused on how companies were protecting their employees during the coronavirus pandemic; and how they were keeping up morale, rewarding hard work, and helping maintain a work-life balance when life is turned sideways. Falls & Co. had a 90 percent engagement rate in the survey.

“What also makes this honor so amazing is that our entire agency had worked from home during the pandemic and still found ways to work together, maintain our culture and deliver great results for our clients, grow the agency and capture new accounts,” said Falls.

“It gets even better,” Falls added. “After acquiring Wyse Advertising and folding in Falls Digital to Falls Communications to form the new Falls & Co.—next week will be the first time we will all be working in the same office at the same time. The only good thing about not working at the office during these 15 months, is that it gave us a chance to re-design and update our offices as well as adding more space.”

Falls & Co. has grown to almost 90 professionals in a relatively short period of time, adding strength to all internal groups – integrated, digital, creative, advertising and communications.
