Work Hard,
Have Fun, Win Awards

Written by Scott Rivera, 4 years ago, 0 Comments

EPIC Creative® has been recognized by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel as one of Wisconsin’s Top Workplaces. It’s a significant award given to Wisconsin companies that create and maintain positive work environments. I was honored when our leadership team asked Heather Cich and me to represent EPIC at the award ceremony.

In preparation for the event, I made a long list of reasons why EPIC is such a great place to work and everything fit nicely into four buckets – the culture, clients, management and training.

The culture
Our EPIC family is a collection of dedicated professionals that consistently go out of the way to exceed expectations. The atmosphere here is relaxed, the people are friendly and there is always something exciting happening. Our offices in West Bend are dog-friendly and on any given day, you can pet (or be slobbered on by) by a variety of happy pooches. We also turn normal events into EPIC events. Instead of a typical Account Management presentation, it turned into a game of Family Feud. Instead of a normal company-wide meeting, it’s a spring cleaning day and a pig roast. The list goes on.

The clients
We work closely with industry leaders who trust us to design and deliver content that impacts their markets. We’re able to do great work for them because more often than not we share the same principle values. In fact, two of our clients won this same award. We pride ourselves in developing relationships with our clients that often go beyond the day-to-day work.

The management
Our owners recognize, appreciate and reward employee efforts through a generous profit sharing plan and various off-site team events. There’s no room for complacency at EPIC. We set aggressive revenue goals and routinely explore opportunities to expand the business.

The training
We are encouraged to disrupt business as usual in order to enhance our work. Our owners are prepared to foot the bill for the latest software, training and even a few toys now and then.

I could go on, but in truth, EPIC’s “Work Hard Have Fun” motto encompasses the reason our company is a top workplace. It’s a simple slogan that drives creative excellence, client satisfaction and employee retention. We live the “Work Hard Have Fun” motto every day and we’d love to share it with you.
