Integrated PR + Marketing Agency Recognized Among the Best MA Employers for the Fifth Time.

BOSTON – December 7, 2021 – Matter Communications — a Brand Elevation Agency specializing in PR, creative services, digital marketing and strategy — has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the 14th annual employee-based survey project from The Boston Globe.

Top Places to Work recognizes the most admired workplaces in the state as voted on by the people who know them best – their employees. The survey measures employee opinions about everything from leadership and compensation to training and workplace flexibility. Organizations are placed into one of four groups: small (50 to 99 employees), medium (100 to 249 workers), large, (250 to 999) and largest (over 1,000).

“Being named in the Top Places to Work is an especially meaningful accomplishment this year – a noteworthy chapter in our agency’s history, when our ability to adapt to continuously evolving working environments was tested as we welcomed numerous new faces to our team,” said Matter Principal and CEO, Scott Signore. “We’re thrilled with this recognition and couldn’t be prouder to see that our people-first approach still resonates with those who matter most to our business.”

Since Matter’s inception, it has embraced the core values of integrity, inclusion, innovation and responsibility. From communicating honestly and openly to creating a diverse, supportive work environment, Matter delivers success to its clients and supports its surrounding communities. Employees are encouraged to volunteer regularly through a robust agency-wide “Helping Hands” initiative and take part in a range of fitness and wellness activities. Matter’s highly collaborative team environment lets individuals grow and succeed through in-depth training programs, mentoring and internal award programs, ensuring employees have the resources and support to deliver high-quality work in a positive environment.

“The workplace is undergoing a once-in-a-lifetime transformation and the companies that embraced that change – putting their employees’ needs first – really stood out,” said Katie Johnston, the Globe’s Top Places to Work editor.

The Top Places to Work rankings are based on confidential survey information from over 80,000 individuals at 363 Massachusetts organizations, collected by Energage (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention. The winners share a few key traits, including offering more flexibility to continue working remotely, tracking progress on efforts to support a diverse workforce and – above all – remembering to have some fun along the way.

With 250+ professionals across offices in Boston and Newburyport, MA, Providence, RI, Pittsburgh, PA, Denver, CO, and Portland, OR, Matter is one of the fastest-growing PR, creative services, digital marketing and strategy firms in the country. Recently named to Forbes List of America’s Best PR Agencies for 2021, Matter has won 14 “Agency of the Year” accolades and has been consistently recognized as a top place to work.
