New Brighton, MN. May 20, 2021.

Foxtrot Marketing Group recently ranked on PPB’s competitive “2021 Greatest Companies to Work for” list.

PPAI Media, the owner of PPB Magazine, has conducted the annual competition since 2011 but put it on hold last year because of the pandemic. The competition is open to all PPAI member companies with at least five full-time employees. According to the Promotional Products Association International (PPAI), there are more than 30,000 distributor firms and 3,500 supplier companies in the promotional products industry. More than 15,000 distributors and suppliers are members of PPAI.

“This competition is extremely popular and competitive, and we were so happy to be able to reinstate it this year. After the challenges we’ve all been through over the past 15 months or so, it was a joy to give our member companies a way to engage their employees and an opportunity to celebrate,” says Tina Berres Filipski, PPB’s editor and director of publications.

Companies included in the competition had to be nominated by an employee. Then a 15-question survey was sent to every full-time employee to rate their company in five areas: benefits, resources, culture, leadership, and company direction. Companies were also required to meet a percentage of completed surveys. The survey results were then tabulated to reveal this year’s top companies.

PPB will profile the winning companies in the magazine’s July issue.

“This recognition is a validation of the strong, servant leadership culture we’ve created in our organization,” said Jill Haspert, CEO of Foxtrot Marketing Group. “I’m proud of our team and our ongoing efforts to make Foxtrot a great place to work.”
