The People Make the Place

Once again, Schaefer is proud to have been recognized by Medical Marketing and Media as a “Best Place to Work.” In an era when remote and hybrid workforces have reshaped how people connect and interact, we’ve succeeded in maintaining a high priority on our people and our culture.

What is MM+M Best Places To Work?

Highlighting some of the most prominent and progressive agencies in the medical marketing industry, the Best Places to Work designation celebrates employers who listen to and empower their staff, and help drive the collaboration necessary to elevate workplace culture and morale.

This year, MM+M asked agencies to explore what keeps employees invested in their work and satisfied with their workplace. The panel of judges recognized Schaefer Advertising for its commitment to important attributes such as work-life balance, employee recognition, effective leadership, and ability to adapt to a changing work environment.

“Working in medical marketing is a far different proposition in late 2022 than it was when COVID-19 hit in March 2020,” said MM+M editor-in-chief Larry Dobrow. “Best Places to Work celebrates the organizations that have most ably navigated the chaos. As always, it serves as an essential guide for employees and employers alike.”

Times are different. So are we.

Even though some employees live over 1,000 miles away from the agency’s Fort Worth headquarters, the team remains close. Zoom calls and in-office conferences keep people – and their dogs – in touch, while a steady stream of Slack posts update everyone on everything from birthdays and anniversaries, to the arrival of new babies and puppies. Friendly rivalries between UT and TCU alums add to the spirit, as do offsite events ranging from Halloween costume contests to impromptu ice cream socials.

Great work begins with a great environment. “We love doing exceptional work,” said Ken Schaefer, President of Schaefer Advertising. “And it’s easier to do great work when you have a great environment. It’s wonderful that organizations like MM+M step forward and recognize how important that is. We’re deeply honored to be once again named a Best Place to Work.”
