CHICAGO, IL – September 27, 2018 – Rightpoint, an independent digital customer experience agency, has been named a Bronze Stevie® Award Winner for the People-Focused CEO of the Year category in the third annual Stevie Awards for Great Employers. The award recognizes Rightpoint’s Co-CEOs, Ross Freedman and Brad Schneider, as top executives who have contributed to building a people-focused culture within their organization.

The Stevie Awards for Great Employers recognize the world’s best employers and the human resources professionals, teams, achievements and HR-related products and suppliers who help to create and drive great places to work. With more than 550 nominations from organizations in 21 countries around the world, Freedman and Schneider were selected for their commitment to creating an agency that celebrates intrapreneuership and a challenger mentality.

Recognized for its 90+ percent employee retention and 60 percent employee referral rating, Freedman’s and Schneider’s emphasis on building personal relationships with each employee is transforming the reality of what a creative agency is and can be. It’s through their mission to be an agency of the future that they’ve developed a unique and thriving company culture that values its employees’ diversity of thought and, as a result, enables their clients to succeed at the speed of innovation.
