As a direct result of rapid company growth and recent employee feedback from team members looking for ways to increase their professional development, we’re pleased to announce the promotion of Courtney Calderon to Vice President of Internal Communications. Courtney will spearhead new training incentives for all current and new employees, designed to support every stage of their career with us.
“We recognized that a new role, focused on employee engagement, training, and support was needed to not only interpret and promote our culture, values and mission, but also provide more comprehensive professional development opportunities for everyone,” said Uproar CEO, Catriona Harris. “We want our employees to stay and grow their career with us, and so we see the Internal Communications role as a long-term investment in our teams.”
Courtney has been with Uproar for six years, starting as an Account Coordinator and later receiving promotions in succession to Account Manager and Account Director.
“Courtney followed a path we hope all employees follow,” said Harris. “Our employees are our biggest asset, and by investing in their development and training through every stage of their career, we’re also investing in the future of our company, our sustainable business growth, and our success as a global public relations agency.”
Recognized as one of the “best places to work,” Uproar keeps a two-way communication loop open with employees which helps leaders regularly assess and support needs. In addition to an annual workplace satisfaction survey, teams are also engaged in quarterly, more intimate discussions regarding work-life balance, growth opportunities and overall job satisfaction.
“After growing within Uproar for the last several years, I’ve had first-hand experience navigating the daily challenges and triumphs of agency life,” said Calderon. “My goal is to use that perspective to focus on employee happiness and wellbeing and serve as an ongoing support system. By driving development and building a learning environment that accommodates the digital shift in our business, we’ll keep an already-strong company culture going, with a solid foundation for future growth.”
