Bright Beginnings: Merritt’s Volunteer Day Off

 

Agency life is fast paced. It requires the ability to multi-task and pivot quickly, and demands a constant focus on client needs. That can be taxing if you don’t keep things in perspective. One way Merritt Group helps to keep staff so energized to focus on our client work is the firm’s dedication to helping employees maintain balance in their lives. Whether it’s offering flex time, holding monthly exercise classes, or sponsoring the annual Merry Week of Giving and supporting ad hoc causes through the year, Merritt Group has created a culture that celebrates all aspects of an individual’s well being.

Q&A With Merritt Group-er: Get to Know Jessica Klenk

1. What do you do at Merritt Group?

I'm a Director in our San Francisco office, where I wear two equally awesome hats -- I help clients across multiple practice groups develop and execute high-impact communication strategies that increase their visibility in key markets, and I help make sure our incredibly smart, talented West Coast team is growing and thriving. Whether organizing professional development training, planning our InBalance program and other team-building activities (we've gone kayaking, paddleboarding and wine tasting, been to the batting cages, tried yoga and meditation, had in-office massages, and volunteered at several amazing local organizations -- just to name a few!), or recruiting the best talent the Bay Area has to offer, it's the best of both worlds!
