Bateman Group Makes the List of Best Places to Work in 2019

Fifteen years ago, Netflix was a company that sent out DVDs, Gmail was the newest product on the block and Bateman Group was more of an idea than an actual company. That idea was to build a different kind of PR agency — one that prioritized people over profits and celebrated creativity and connection. We boiled it down to two words: excellence and empathy. Now, it’s been codified into our culture: We are an organization that invests in our team first. We think we’ve been successful in building a company around our core values, and we are always thrilled to be recognized for it.

Today, in the afterglow of our 15th anniversary, I’m proud to announce Bateman Group’s selection to the 2019 Best Places to Work in The Bay Area, a list compiled by the San Francisco Business Times and Silicon Valley Business Journal. It’s an honor to be included and a testament to the value of investing in a healthy and balanced atmosphere where our team members help one another grow as people.

Our employee and client turnover continue to be among the lowest in technology PR, and we are expanding into new markets with some amazing hires and the opening of our Portland office. Our content-led, data-driven approach to communications continues to resonate with the marketplace, and we believe deeply that the excellence we are able to bring to our clients and partners is a direct result of the culture and environment we’ve intentionally built.

Day in and day out, every employee, regardless of seniority, is given opportunities to let their true talents shine, develop new skills and work in a team environment where everyone lifts up one another. We challenge ourselves to experiment with new ideas and processes and approach failure with empathy and curiosity — not derision or judgment.

Bateman Group was founded on the premise that personal happiness and business success are not mutually exclusive and that the workplace can be a place of professional learning and personal growth. We’re proud of where that has brought us today and looking forward to what the future holds. Thank you to the SF Business Times and Silicon Valley Business Journal for the honor. Cheers to the next 15!
