There’s a pattern that we’ve observed at the Holmes Report that illustrates why being a Best Agency to Work For carries so much significance. There’s a direct correlation between the agencies on this list and those that take home our biggest honor — Agency of the Year recognition. That’s, in part, because firms that take culture seriously tend to attract and retain smart and creative talent who, in turn, produce stellar work. This year, we did a ranking to celebrate the top five firms in each category that are successfully navigating this formula. (You can read the full rankings by clicking on the size category.)

For more information on the methodology — and how you can order your own agency's results — visit this section's About/FAQ page. The top winner in each category will be recognized at the 2017 North American SABRE Awards, taking place at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York on May 2.
