Marathon Named to Ragan Communications Top Places to Work Class of 2021

Marathon is excited to announce that we’ve been named among Ragan Communication’s Top Places to Work Class of 2021 as part of its annual Employee Communications Awards. 

This recognition is a reflection of our hardworking and dedicated staff who create a workplace that values creativity, inclusivity, growth, and learning. Working together, we have been able to embrace the challenges of the past year to continue creating innovative, winning strategies for our clients while also strengthening our own company culture even while we all worked from home.  

Marathon also won Ragan’s top Employee Education/Training Program for our commitment to professional development throughout the pandemic. Our learning and development sessions are a cornerstone of Marathon’s workplace culture and have been more essential than ever in the work-from-home era, offering regular opportunities for our staff to come together and engage in meaningful and productive discussions that help us serve our clients better. 

This recognition follows several recent accolades for Marathon.  

For the second year in a row, we have been named a finalist for Public Affairs Agency of the Year by PRovoke Media. The recognition is an acknowledgement by our peers of the successful and innovative campaigns our team has organized on behalf of our clients – from Walmart’s voter education initiative to a campaign that led Congress to pass legislation that helps the US victims of the 1998 embassy bombings hold the state sponsors of those acts of terror accountable.  

Earlier this year, Marathon won a PRovoke Innovation SABRE Award for our work with the Cannabis Information Project, a coalition of the nation’s top cannabis companies working to provide accurate information about the industry and keeping cannabis dispensaries open to patients and consumers amid the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Additionally, Marathon was named a finalist for PR Week’s 2021 Outstanding Small Agency Of The Year. We also appeared on the Financial Times’ list of America’s fastest-growing companies, and were recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the nation’s 5,000 fastest growing companies for the second year in a row.  

We would like to thank our amazing client partners and our network of close friends and colleagues who help make our successes possible and our work enjoyable. These relationships are an invaluable part of the Marathon environment.
