What does Hawthorne offer employees?!
A Hybrid Work Model
At Hawthorne, we embrace a hybrid work model for our employees. This work model allows both in-office collaborative experiences and the flexibility to work from home.
Hawthorne offers a work environment that challenges professionals and provides them with hands-on experience with clients early in their careers with the support of colleagues and guidance of experienced communications leaders.
A Supportive Environment
As a small PR agency, every member of our team is intimately involved with the growth and development of Hawthorne. We value the thoughts and opinions of all team members and encourage their engagement in all aspects of the business from hiring, to new business, to day-to-day client support.
We invest in our employees’ personal growth by offering each team member $2,000 per year in professional development funds to help them stay on the cutting edge of our industry. This money can be used toward:
Attending industry luncheons
Joining relevant networking events
Participating in seminars and conferences
Continuing education courses that help develop the skills they need to serve our clients.
A Well-Rounded Work Experience
Hawthorne’s diverse client base provides communications professionals the opportunity to develop their expertise in many critical industries, including healthcare, non-profit, financial services, and economic development. Our business model purposely does not utilize practice groups to ensure our team members gain exposure to different types of clients and projects.
We invest in our team by providing top-notch benefits, including:
An automatic contribution of 3 percent to each employee’s 401(k) with the possibility of annual profit-sharing based on company success
100 percent coverage of life insurance and short- and long-term disability plans
