Leapfrog Online, one of the largest digital marketing companies in the U.S., has been named #16 on Brill Street’s annual list of Top 50 Employers for Gen Y Emerging Talent in Chicago.
According to Brill Street, the list recognizes Chicagoland companies where at least 10% of their employees are Gen Y and that have “created an atmosphere where Gen Y can thrive.” Gen Y in this context is “anyone born between 1980 and 2000 (currently ages 13 – 33).” Companies are considered for the list based on: professional development opportunities, benefits, environment, company reputation, culture and perks, as well as the enthusiasm of company leadership for Gen Y.
“Leapfrog Online is large enough to have big agency resources but small enough to know everyone by name. This size also allows Gen Y employees, even recent grads, to be put into big roles with world-class clients,” says Brill Street. The profile also highlights Leapfrog’s commitment to employees’ continued learning and regular lunchtime “Lightning Talks,” TED-like presentations by employees for employees on topics professional and otherwise.
Says Dave Husain, Leapfrog Online’s CEO, “As an innovative company focused on digital marketing, Gen Y employees are extremely important to us; we rely on their perspective and creative energy. We are delighted to be included on this select list.”
