Clearwater, FL – April 8, 2020 — Digital Media Solutions (DMS) proudly announced it was named one of Tampa Bay’s Top Workplaces of 2020 by the Tampa Bay Times. Now in its 11th year, the Top Workplaces program is driven solely by employee feedback. Company rankings are reflective of key qualities that are critical to the success of any organization, including leadership, training, workplace flexibility and diversity. This year, more than 180 leading companies were surveyed in the Tampa Bay region. This is the second time DMS has received this honor.
“Our people are our first priority, always,” said Joe Marinucci, DMS CEO. “Like every team, we're only as strong as the weakest link. At DMS, we've intentionally created an environment that nurtures drive, resiliency and true connections, resulting in a united team that supports each other through every challenge we individually and collectively face. I am grateful to be part of Team DMS, and I look forward to everything we will face ahead together."
The Tampa Bay Top Workplaces award comes on the heels of similar workplace-focused recognitions for DMS. In January, DMS was awarded the Tampa Bay Business Journal’s Coolest Office Spaces, spotlighting standout companies who provide employees with unique working environments and positive company cultures. Similarly, following an 86% employee approval rating, DMS became a certified Great Place To Work for its newest office, located in San Diego.
In the wake of COVID-19, DMS has quickly pivoted to launch a series of new work from home culture initiatives for employees, designed to help everyone stay connected and engaged during the company’s time of remote working. Some of these efforts include a weekly newsletter, book and podcast clubs, family movie nights, weekly company-wide virtual town hall meetings and a new “Charity Miles Challenge,” featuring a virtual competition that will raise funds for Headstrong and COVID relief. Each new initiative allows DMS to better connect as a team, positioning the company in the best strategic spot to endure this market fluctuation.
