Abstrakt Marketing Group, a business growth company out of St. Louis, Missouri, is starting off Q2 strong. Abstrakt has won over 170 awards since its inception in 2009, and the business received 6 nationwide awards just last month. One of the company’s goals is to receive at least 20 awards and recognition for the year that fall into the following categories:
- Culture and Workplace
- Growth and Innovation
Four of Abstrakt’s newest awards fall into the category of culture and workplace. In quarter 1 of this year, Abstrakt was named a Top Workplace USA for the first time since the start of the business. Once the Top Workplaces USA are announced, the Top Workplaces Culture Excellence Awards are announced in the following quarter. Abstrakt was named a winner in two of those categories:
- Top Workplaces USA Culture Excellence Awards in Innovation
- Top Workplaces USA Culture Excellence Awards in Leadership
The Top Workplaces Culture Excellence Awards, which are issued by Energage and based solely on employee feedback, celebrate organizations that excel in specific areas of workplace culture. Abstrakt is also striving to also receive the local St. Louis Post Dispatch Top Workplaces recognition next month.
Abstrakt was also selected as a finalist in the Best Places to Work 2023. The St. Louis Business Journal recognizes the Best Places to Work each year with the Best Places to Work Award. The program recognizes Greater St. Louis employers with the most engaged workforces. Abstrakt is proud to be on the list alongside other great companies locally year after year.
President of Abstrakt Marketing Group, Eric Watkins says, “Incredible company cultures happen when your leadership cares and invests in your people. The people are the most important asset in any organization. Year after year, we constantly find innovative ways to put our people first while maintaining our distinct company culture. Winning workplace awards such as these are a testament to our team, and we couldn’t be prouder.”
In addition to the 4 culture and workplace awards, Abstrakt was also recognized for 3 pieces of creative work. The American Business Award winners are decided by the average scores of more than 230 professionals worldwide who took part in the judging process. Over 3,700 nominations from organizations of all sizes across every industry were submitted for consideration in many categories. Abstrakt received a:
Bronze Stevie Award in Employee Communications for the 2022 Give Back Day Video
Abstrakt also received creative recognition in this year’s Hermes Creative Awards. Hermes is one of the oldest and largest global creative competitions. It recognizes the creative industry’s best publications, branding collateral, websites, videos, and advertising, marketing, and communication programs. These wins are extremely special this year because Abstrakt received recognition from two pieces of client work:
- Gold Hermes Creative Award for AAIM in Website Overall Redesign
- Gold Hermes Creative Award for Polymatic Solutions in B2B Website
Director of Digital Strategy, Doug Yocco says, “Creativity is all about inventing, experimenting, growing, and having fun. Our entire team embraces this on a daily basis, and it truly shows in our work. We couldn’t be more excited and prouder of the great websites our team has created to win these awards and more importantly, grow our partners’ business.”
