RF|Binder has been recognized as one of Crain’s 2023 Best Places to Work in New York City list for the second year in a row
NEW YORK, NY (September 28, 2023) — RF|Binder, a fully integrated communications agency and consultancy headquartered in New York City, has been named as one of Crain’s 100 Best Places to Work in New York City for 2023. RF|Binder placed at #20 on the list, and was recognized for its people-first culture, focus on fostering an engaged workplace where employees are empowered to grow personally and professionally, hybrid flexible working environment, and best-in-class benefits and employee offerings. This comes after RF|Binder was recognized in 2022 on both Crain’s and Quartz’s best workplaces lists.
Winners are chosen through a simple yet thorough company assessment designed to gather detailed information about workplaces. Employers complete an in-depth questionnaire on benefits and offerings, and employees have the opportunity to offer their feedback through a company-wide survey about the organization’s leadership, benefits, culture, training and development, and overall satisfaction. Both portions of the assessment are considered and analyzed when naming winners and deciding who has what it takes to be the “best.”
“It is an honor to be recognized by Crain’s New York Business as one of the best places to work in New York two years in a row,” said Rebecca Binder, President at RF|Binder. “At RF|Binder, values, culture, and purpose are at the core of who we are, how we work, and what drives our growth. And as a women-owned and independent business, fostering an inclusive work environment where all team members are empowered to learn, grow, and speak up is critical to us.”

Our learning and development programming includes weekly Workshop Wednesdays, a Paid & Digital Marketing series, a Research and Insights Ambassador Council, and a Media Relations series, that allow for continuous upskilling and reskilling of team members at all levels. Outside of the workplace, team members are encouraged to pursue additional learning opportunities and are supported with tuition reimbursement. Additionally, each employee has a dedicated Development Leader responsible for working with them on setting and achieving career goals and providing ongoing feedback. We also match mentors and mentees together, both of similar levels and of varying levels of experience, who can learn from and guide each other.
RF|Binder offers industry-leading benefits including comprehensive medical, dental, vision, disability, and life insurance, 401k contributions, generous paid time off and summer Fridays, and much more. Taking advantage of our flexible and hybrid working environment, we come together both within and outside of our day-to-day work. From regular happy hours and out-of-the-box team building activities, to our quarterly Bindey Awards recognizing those that have gone above and beyond our guiding principles and quarterly Hour to Empowers featuring a diverse mix of speakers to inspire reflection, there is no shortage of events to strike up meaningful conversations. Recent team activities also include wine tastings, beer tastings, donation drives, virtual triathlons and step challenges, bakeoffs, and game nights.
