Best Places to Work: Stone Ward

2 min read

Founded in 1984, Stone Ward is one of the most recognized agencies in the business, and the entire staff shares a passion for creativity and a focus on helping good companies succeed while making a positive difference. 

Stone Ward has a “Building Good” philosophy and is a company that rewards high performance.

All team members are eligible for annual, performance-based bonuses and are encouraged to solicit new business. Should Stone Ward win such business, the person who brought the lead or contact to the agency is rewarded with a bonus of up to 5% of the agency’s first year’s annual gross profit on the account.

As a reward for commitment, when staff complete five years of full-time, continuous service, they’re granted an additional five days of sabbatical leave to be taken in their sixth year. Sabbatical leave is awarded for each additional five years of service.

After 10 years with the agency, team members get one extra week of paid vacation and a $2,500 check to use toward visiting their destination of choice.



  • Stone Ward pays for 100% of employees’ health insurance with a $500 deductible. Dependent coverage is awarded in part and includes same-sex spouses. The agency annually provides free flu shots for all team members, hiring a nurse practitioner to give them in the office for added convenience. The kitchen is stocked with several variations of herbal tea and a medicine cabinet containing over-the-counter products employees might need if they fall ill during the workday.
