Ranked as one of the top 100 public relations firms in the nation, Sachs Media Group offers a range of public relations, crisis management, branding, advertising, Web and graphic design, social/digital media and video production.

“We’ve worked hard to build a positive culture and cultivate a healthy team atmosphere,” said chief operating officer Michelle Ubben. “Our outstanding work on behalf of our clients is an outgrowth of hiring the best people and then rewarding, recognizing and appreciating their efforts.”

To be a “Best Company,” companies must have at least 15 Florida employees. Florida Trend uses a two-part survey process, starting with an evaluation of workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. Then, a second survey assesses employee satisfaction.

The employee assessment focuses on eight themes: corporate culture and communications; role satisfaction; work environment; pay and benefits; relationship with supervisor; leadership and planning; training and development; and overall engagement.
