ePromos Once Again Declared A Top Workplace In The Promo Industry


counselor best places to work

Well, folks, we’ve done it again. We’ve earned ourselves a spot on Counselor magazine’s “Best Places to Work” list. This makes the fifth year in a row that ePromos has been named a top workplace in the promotional products industry. We rank 55 out of 90 companies selected for the list (and out of about 35,000 companies in the industry.)

Here’s the cool part about this accolade – it was decided by our very own employees.

Counselor, the b-to-b publication for the Advertising Specialty Institute, directly surveys employees of promotional marketing companies for the straight scoop on what it’s like working for those companies. Only the highest ranking businesses have a shot to make the annual list.

ePromos employees got real on some big issues in the workplace: team effectiveness, trust in leadership, overall job satisfaction, and more.

When the scores were tallied up, ePromos surged ahead of other companies in the promo industry. We’re the highest-ranking New York-based company to receive the honor.

So, what’s so compelling about ePromos? Why do people genuinely enjoy working here?

A lot of reasons, actually, but perhaps the biggest (and most cherished) reason is that we have fun. It doesn’t feel like work when we head to the office or log on for the day. We work in a creative industry, and we’re proud to put our promo know-how to work for our customers.

We have fun in our individual jobs, and we also have fun as a team. Click through some of our Facebook photos and you’ll get a good idea of what it’s like working here. We have pizza lunches. We paint pottery. We even pack up and head to Mexico for incentive trips.

This is fun stuff – and it’s built right into the culture at ePromos. You can read more about our latest win in this press release, and if you’re pining to be part of our team, check out our job opportunities.

The annual awards competition spotlights the extraordinary suppliers that consistently go above and beyond. A team of ePromos employees selects the winners each year based on two criteria: They must be an ePromos Top 20 supplier and they must demonstrate outstanding customer service.

ePromos’ Senior Supplier Relations Manager, Hope Binegar, says: “These suppliers win the Top Supplier Awards not only because they develop great products, but because they’re real partners to us. They help train our people on the benefits of using those products, and they’re there to discuss creative solutions when we want to do something out of the ordinary for our clients.”

ePromos Named One Of The Greatest Companies To Work For


It rocks being a part of the ePromos team. Getting recognized for having an awesome workplace is the icing on the cake.

We’ve long been known as one of the promo products industry’s best workplaces (we’ve been named one of the Best Places to Work by Counselor magazine for three consecutive years), and this year, we earned a new accolade: Recognition from PPB magazine as one of the Greatest Companies To Work For.

PPB Greatest Companies To Work ForWhat makes the honor even cooler is that winners are selected based on employee nominations. This year, 119 companies were nominated to win the annual award, and ePromos was among 14 industry companies deemed the best of the best.

Our CEO, Jason Robbins, is thrilled that ePromos is acknowledged as one of the industry’s best workplaces. “We strive to create a culture in which our employees want to give their best every day,” he says, “and it’s rewarding to know that our team nominated us for this award.”

PPB magazine, the official business publication of Promotional Products Association International (PPAI), the world’s largest and oldest international not-for-profit promotional products association, launched the editorial recognition in 2011.

Winners were honored at this week’s Expo East, a tradeshow in Atlantic City, and will also be featured in the June issue of PPB magazine.

It’s no small achievement earning a name as one of the industry’s best workplaces, but it’s only natural. We love coming to work, and we love helping our customers succeed.

ePromos Wins Top Award For Promotional Marketing Excellence


PPAI Pyramid Award

The music industry has the Grammys. The film industry has the Oscars. And the promotional products industry has the PPAI Pyramid Awards. It’s the highest honor when it comes to promotional marketing that’s creative, distinctive and effective, and guess what?

ePromos has won. Again.

Last month at The PPAI Expo (the industry’s largest and most-attended tradeshow), ePromos received a bronze Pyramid Award for our work on a campaign for Entertainment One, a leading entertainment content and distribution business. We used custom logo merchandise to modernize the iconic 1960s spy series, It Takes A Thief, in order to get original fans and a younger demographic to purchase a collector’s set.

Our CEO, Jason Robbins says: “It’s always fulfilling when clients achieve their marketing objectives by using promotional products. We add value by creatively approaching each project, and this award is a testament to our ongoing passion to help clients efficiently use custom products.”

Yes, passion is what it’s all about. ePromos’ Brand Consultants have a fervent affinity for promotional products, and they love using them in imaginative ways to yield big results.
