Partner archer>malmo named a “Best Place to Work” by The Bark and Zuke’s dog treats

March 3, 2015

archer>malmo, the leading integrated marketing communications agency in the Mid-South, has been selected as one of three Best Places to Work by The Bark, a dog culture magazine. The award is presented by Zuke’s dog treats and annually highlights companies with the most dog-friendly workplace environments. To celebrate the achievement, archer>malmo’s office dogs will receive a year’s worth of healthy dog treats from Zuke’s.

“Dogs are a part of the archer>malmo family. They bring joy to our hearts and lives at home and do the same for us at work,” said Russ Williams, CEO at archer>malmo. “We’ve allowed pets in our office for more than 15 years and can see the great benefit it’s provided our employees – our workplace is more enjoyable, creativity is heightened and moods are boosted with our companion friends.”

Among many pet-friendly aspects contributing toward its recognition, archer>malmo boasts these pet perks that contributed to its win:
Canine-friendly: Dogs are welcome in all areas of the office every day as long as they are with their owners.

Dog-driven work policies: archer>malmo offers pet insurance to their employees and pays for 10% of the premium cost.

Dedicated to canine causes: Many of our employees are involved in dog rescue and health programs throughout the Memphis community and our agency often provides pro-bono marketing assistance to support these programs.

“Companion animals are also aligned with our client base, with two of our largest clients representing this industry,” Williams added. “Not only are pets welcome at work, but they are truly a creative inspiration for much of our client work.”

Nominations were reviewed by a team of Bark editors, pet industry experts and human (and canine) resources professionals. The full list of winners can be found here.
