The Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) area tops the list of the most-competitive employment markets in the U.S., and for the communications industry, DFW is even more competitive. Last year, the Professional Services sector led the way in overall job growth in DFW with 5.3 percent growth. Mid-sized communications agencies have been particularly affected, lacking the allure of working internally for household brand names like Toyota or AT&T, and unable to compete with the deep pockets of sprawling holding company-backed agencies.
LDWW needed a unique program to help attract and retain the best talent in the market. LDWW's Friday GO HOME program has been a huge success. Since its creation, the agency has recruited exceptional talent for high-demand roles in content development and management, increasing our staff size by almost 10 percent. The program also has contributed to 100 percent employee retention since its introduction.
