Founded in 1981, Resource Interactive is a digital marketing agency intent on keeping its staff on the cutting edge. As one client puts it, their 241 employees “don’t ride the wave, they make it.” Female-founded, owned and operated, the agency helps Fortune 500 companies harness interactive design and technological innovation to thrive in the evolving Internet economy. Employees share in the firm’s success through a stock fund that gives employees one share of stock in each of their client companies that are publicly traded. In addition to the great insurance, wellness programs and college savings plans offered, staff enjoy a comfortable, hip and creative environment where dogs are welcome and all employees, including the CEO, share an open workspace. All staff participate in a nine week “on-boarding” program, where lectures in each functional area are led by the executive director of that area. Regular lunch-and-learn sessions and external training keep talent fresh. A comprehensive career-pathing process allows employees to self direct their careers and work toward leadership roles. All staff are given extensive access to blogs, conferences and summits – such as iCitizen- which fuel the dialogue between international leaders in Web 2.0 media.
