The agency ranked #23 on Quartz’s list of best medium-sized companies for remote employees, defined as companies with a global employee base of 50 to 249 people.
Criteria for inclusion on the Quartz list of best remote companies
Employers could apply for inclusion on Quartz’s list. The selected companies had surveys go out to employees asking questions about their employers: how they felt about the work culture, benefits, growth opportunities, and more.
Survey results were weighted, with employee sentiment counting for 75% of the total score and employer policies and practices at 25%.
According to Quartz, “employers had to demonstrate that they treat remote work not as a stopgap or as something to be tolerated but as a business priority that provides its own set of competitive advantages.”
CEO Jason Hennessey launched Hennessey Digital in 2015 (then Hennessey Consulting) with a single law firm client. The remote agency has since grown into a $10MM business and is a trusted partner to top-ranking U.S. firms across the U.S.
“We educate and empower law firms, and we believe in being transparent with what we know and how we work because it leads to better outcomes for everyone,” Hennessey says.
Advantages in legal industry knowledge and technology
Hennessey Digital made the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in America for its third consecutive year earlier this summer and also ranked over Snapchat on the 2021 Financial Times list of the Americas’ fastest-growing companies.
Jason Hennessey attributes his team’s success to open communication and a commitment to innovation.
“We intentionally created a 100%-virtual company for recruiting purposes, and we’re honored to be recognized by Quartz as it confirms we’re thinking correctly about these things. Remote-first teams now set the pace of innovation in digital marketing,” Hennessey shares.
Hennessey Digital recently launched its Platform, a proprietary tool that gives clients full transparency into their digital marketing ROI. A new version of the Hennessey Digital Platform is expected later this year along with the company’s 3-year Vivid Vision.
Being rated as a Quartz Best Place to Work means our culture exists beyond a paycheck. We are honest and transparent, nimble, and always learning. We do what’s right and we love to make it fun!
