You don’t have to search any farther than Doejo’s homepage to realize that this digital agency has a Generation Y aura about it. The video that plays as you enter the website screams young professionals. It’s avant-garde, forward thinking and flat out fun. This startup agency is “home” for many young professionals; they make up over 30% of the entire staff!
If you watch the video on the website (and come on, we know you did), it is easy to see that these digital gurus work in an office that caters to the preferences of Gen Y workers.
Doejo Owner and CEO Phil Tadros says, “They [Generation Y employee-hopefuls] show up and want to work with us. We don’t try or think; our approach to business is organic. Talent and clients reach out to us.”
And who wouldn’t? Doejo offers a wide variety of services to its clients. Employees at the agency specialize in events, e-mail marketing, social media campaigns, e-commerce, and a variety of special developments amongst other services.
This is the kind of work that digital aficionados dream of. Doejo caters to its young professionals by keeping its street-level studio office stocked full of the latest technology. Tadros accredits this to the agency being constantly up to date with everything online and says that some traditional companies look to them for what’s current.
In addition to a competitive benefits package, use of latest technology and exciting digital work opportunities, Doejo boasts a relaxed business approach. Their business approach is so laid back that on their website they invite people to drop in and say “Hi!” Out of office, Doejo employees can relax while socializing at events put on by help of the agency. Have you heard of Chicago Media Social or Tech Cocktail? Yep, you guessed it; Doejo had a hand in the production.
What advice does Doejo have for companies looking to excite Generation Y employees? Listen to them! What a concept, right?
Tadros says, “Doejo is morphing rapidly, and is a challenging and stimulating environment. Our crew makes us feel unstoppable. Curiousity is revered. Independence is essential. Growth is exponential. Every single day rocks.”
With that kind of attitude, it’s easy to see why Doejo landed a spot on Brill Street’s “2011 Top 50 Chicago Generation Y Employers.”
