“We take great pride in the fact that we are one of the country’s fastest-growing agencies and best places to work—proving that you don’t have to sacrifice your culture in order to achieve business results.”
—Neal Sharma, CEO of DEG, Linked by Isobar
“We’ve always said that our people are our most important asset,” said Neal Sharma, CEO of DEG, Linked by Isobar. “We take great pride in the fact that we are one of the country’s fastest-growing agencies and best places to work—proving that you don’t have to sacrifice your culture in order to achieve business results.”
In 2018, DEG was also named a Kansas City Business Journal Best Places to Work—for the eighth time in the agency’s 19-year history—an Ingram’s Magazine Best Companies to Work for, and a Digiday Worklife Award winner for its new parental leave benefits. DEG launched a new benefits package in the spring that featured maternity, parental, and adoption leave that competes among the best parental benefits on a national level.
Along with a collaborative, casual work environment, DEG associates are given the flexibility and balance to attend to all aspects of their lives, coupled with nearly 50 company cultural events per year to stay connected to their co-workers in a non-work setting. Several of DEG’s incentive programs include travel components, including an employee of the month program worth $100 to be used outside of the employee’s hometown, two plane tickets to anywhere in the continental United States on an employee’s five-year anniversary, and two tickets to anywhere in the world after 10 years.
In addition to the designation as a best place to work, DEG is one of the fastest-growing companies in the country, landing on the Inc. 5000 list for the eighth consecutive year. DEG has more than 320 associates across the country, with offices in Overland Park, Kan., Denver, Pittsburgh, and Des Moines.
