OnTarget Partners is proud to have been named one of the best places to work in DFW in 2016! In November, 2016, The Dallas Morning News published The Top 100 — their list of the Top 100 Places to Work in DFW for 2016.
Each spring, The News solicits nominations for the Top 100 Places to Work competition. Anyone can nominate a company — a worker, the CEO, even someone outside the company. Each firm must have at least 50 local employees to enter. OnTarget finished in ninth place in the small company category.
This year, WorkplaceDynamics (the research firm commissioned to conduct the surveys) analyzed the answers from 90,898 employees at Dallas-Fort Worth companies to determine the Top 100 and the rankings. WorkplaceDynamics, has surveyed 13.2 million employees in the last decade to compile lists of top places to work. The firm has conducted surveys over the last year for 42 major newspapers in addition to The News, including The Washington Post, Chicago Tribune and Boston Globe.
“We are so proud our employees believe in this business” stated Ed Trachier, Founder and CEO of OnTarget. “We will celebrate our 20th year in business in 2017, and to work with such talented, giving individuals is inspiring. We can only hope the next 20 years will be as positive.”
OnTarget consists of B2B marketing, research and sales experts, supporting clients with lead generation & management services, digital marketing and CRM/Marketing Automation.
“Our tag line is we believe businesses should market and sell more intelligently”, Sheila Rogers, Managing Partner of OnTarget said. “Part of our growth in 2016 is due to our new Sales Outsourcing division, which helps clients sell more, better.”
According to The News, employees want to follow respectful leaders with vision and high moral compasses. They want to work in a fun and nurturing environment where promotions are based on merit. They want to enjoy life away from work. They expect clued-in leadership and leadership that clues them in. Pay and benefits are consistently at the bottom of their priority lists. The News also says the standard for excellence rises every year as the competition intensifies for top talent.
“Frisco is our proud home” says OnTarget President Scott Bratcher. “We tend to hire our people from the suburbs north of Dallas, and these growing communities have enormous talent with great attitude.”
Twenty-six of the winners are newbies — including 15 of the 35 listed in our small company category. Only four of our 100 have made the list in all eight contests. That means this contest is making Dallas-Fort Worth workplaces more viable and peaceable.
Jeff Fischer, Senior Vice President of Marketing at OnTarget says “who knows? This may be the beginning of a long run for OnTarget! We are in a good place.”
