Doylestown, PA – June 29, 2020 – Sagefrog Marketing Group (Sagefrog), a top-ranked B2B marketing agency with specialties in healthcare, technology, industrial, and business services, has been named to Philadelphia Business Journal’s (PBJ) 2020 Best Place to Work (BPTW) list for the third-consecutive year.
This award continues to be Sagefrog’s favorite accolade. Being named to PBJ’s BPTW list is an honor that can only come from the endorsement of employees. PBJ works with Quantum Workplace to annually distribute, collect, and analyze employee surveys. The surveys are protected to ensure the information collected is the best possible representation of how employees truly feel about their company’s culture. Sagefrog ranks on the 2020 BPTW list as a Small Company (10-49 employees), meeting a high statistical benchmark of employee engagement and satisfaction.
“Thank you Philadelphia Business Journal, Quantum Workplace, and most importantly, our team, for honoring Sagefrog with this distinction for the third-consecutive year,” said Mark Schmukler, CEO and Co-founder at Sagefrog, “Being named to this PBJ Best Place to Work list means so much because it tells me that our employees know, see, and feel that they are our most important and valued asset.”
Sagefrog has always valued employees just as it does its clients, thriving on positivity and a high quality of life. Keep reading to learn how the agency has built its award-winning culture and sustained it during COVID-19.
Building a Remote Culture of Connection in 2020
Sagefrog has worked 100% remote since March in response to COVID-19. The agency discovered that it is extremely functionable remotely, leveraging its cloud-based infrastructure and communication channels like Zoom and Slack. Beyond maintaining its operations, Sagefrog has also sustained its desirable culture. The remote circumstances challenged the agency’s leadership team to brainstorm and identify new ways to keep employees connected, motivated, and focused on their health and wellbeing.
Some of the initiatives include:
- Weekly Connect Calls: randomized groups of employees who chat for 15 minutes to catch up
- Scheduled Walks: to get employees away from the screens and encouraged to move outside
- Virtual Yoga & Meditation: to serve as stress-relief, knowing everyone’s facing major adjustments
- Zoom Happy Hours with Activities: to keep people connected and enjoying one another’s company
- Tokens of Appreciation: hand-written thank you cards, and stress-relief dough sent to everyone

“We believe in a workplace where you’re empowered to be the best version of yourself,” said Suzanne Morris, Creative Director and Co-founder at Sagefrog. “Through an extremely difficult time in our world’s history, our team has prevailed, performed, and proven to be stronger than ever. We are so proud of every single member of our team for being the real reason we are a Best Place to Work.”
Keeping Everyone Engaged in the Office & Community
Prior to working remotely, which is anticipated to continue throughout the summer, Sagefrog fostered its culture through various team-building activities, community events, and initiatives that brought teams from the agency’s two Doylestown office locations together. Highlights of 2019 and early-2020 included volunteering at Manna on Main Street and at the annual Doylestown STOMPS Cancer 5K & Walk, and attending a Post Malone concert, yoga and meditation sessions, and annual Christmas Party.
