TEMPE, Ariz. (Dec. 20, 2016) – Higher Ed Growth (HEG), a full-service marketing agency specializing in post-secondary education, has been named one of the Valley’s Best Places to Work by the Phoenix Business Journal for the second consecutive year. HEG ranked No. 10 in the micro business category, which features businesses with up to 49 employees.


“We’re especially proud of being recognized as a Best Place to Work for a second year in a row,” said HEG President and CEO Frank Healy. “It’s one of our greatest achievements to know that our employees take pride in all that we accomplish together.”

The recognition comes on the heels of HEG being named to the Inc 5000 list for a third consecutive time. As one of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies, the Higher Education marketing firm and technology provider grew 111 percent over a three-year period. It generated more than $11 million in revenue in 2015.

“From product innovation to our rapid growth, every team member plays a critical role in our success,” added Healy. “The Best Places to Work award means our employees feel valued, empowered and have the opportunity to make their own mark. And that’s really important to us.”

HEG offers employee-focused programs that provide opportunities for advancement and work-life balance. These programs include formal mentoring and wellness plans; for instance, the company contributes to employee gym memberships in an effort to support healthy living. Other perks include regularly catered lunches, flexible schedules, generous vacation time, and a pet-friendly office.

Phoenix Business Journal has been recognizing Valley businesses with exceptional workplace culture since 2003. The Best Places to Work awards are based on a third-party administered survey and confidential feedback from employees on engagement, satisfaction, leadership, trust, and more.
