Mediafly Earns a Spot on Crain’s Chicago ‘Best Places To Work’ List for the Fourth Consecutive Year

By Hans Brieden | April 29, 2021

Another year, another rank. Spring has sprung in Chicago and Mediafly has climbed to new heights on Crain’s ‘Best Places to Work’ list for the fourth year! Coming in at #64 (up from #77 in 2020), we are thrilled to again be recognized for our outstanding growth, culture, and work-life balance.

At Mediafly, we pride ourselves on creating an environment that empowers our employees to work efficiently whether at the office or from home. And our efforts over the past year have made a positive impact at a time when our team needed it most.

How Mediafly Continues to Ensure it is one of the Best Places to Work

Like many companies, our employees (proudly dubbed ‘Flyers’) have become experts at working from home and finding that balance to keep pushing forward. But as many of us adopt a permanent remote work setup, we acknowledge the increased use of technology can have a negative impact on our mental health and productivity. To help, the Mediafly ops team surveyed our employees to identify ways to help and adapt accordingly. Here’s how we’ve adjusted our policies as a result:

Back by popular demand, we’ve established “Do Not Book Fridays” beginning May 28th and continuing through the summer. This allows employees to focus on meaningful work without the distraction of meetings, take a breather from endless Zoom calls, and perhaps finish off that pint of double chocolate deluxe ice cream after a long week (go ahead, you deserve it!).

Weekly “All-Hands” meetings have continued with great success. These keep all team members aligned and engaged by covering big-picture goals through data and analytics that detail how each team across the company plays an important role in Mediafly’s success.

Personal Days returned to give Flyers the opportunity to recharge, turn off notifications, and get back to areas of life that were once free of emails and office equipment.

Long story short, it’s our people that make our success, and we’re dedicated to listening and engaging with our employees to make Mediafly the singular best place to work.

Putting the ‘Best’ in Best Places to Work

As a recent new hire, I’ve felt the impact of Mediafly’s mission and values almost immediately. Beginning with the onboarding process and continuing through my first few weeks, there is no question that I recognize my role as an integral part of Mediafly’s success. I am encouraged to share new ideas, express my creativity, and pursue my personal goals. At such an early stage, you might think that I’m looking through rose-colored glasses, but it’s clear to see that a career with Mediafly benefits my work, time, and mental health.

Mediafly provides the team with adequate time to recharge, a platform to promote meaningful discussions on key issues, and an environment where everyone is encouraged to be themselves. With these systems and values in place, work becomes less of a job and more of a passion.

As a result, Mediafly has grown its number of Flyers by over 40% in the last year, with employees working all over the country and overseas. The ‘Mediafly Movement’ is becoming a global phenomenon, and I’m grateful to be a part of it!
