PARSIPPANY, N.J., Feb. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- JCPR, a leading independent public relations agency serving clients in highly regulated industries, has been named by NJBIZ as one of the Best Places to Work in New Jersey for the second consecutive year. JCPR was selected based predominantly on the results of an employee survey measuring the staff's overall satisfaction and positive experiences working at the agency.

JCPR has emerged as one of the most progressive public relations agencies through a culture built on maximizing the specialization of each of its employees while maintaining and fostering a deep integration within the industries of the clients it serves. The agency fosters a collaborative approach among its professionals and their clients to create impactful results across traditional, broadcast, digital and social media.

"We place the highest emphasis on culture at JCPR, and this honor is truly a testament to the contribution of every employee's commitment to creating a place where people want to come to work every day," said Jennifer Connelly, Chief Executive Officer of JCPR. "When skilled professionals are allowed to flourish in a creative environment, we are able to continuously exceed the expectations of our clients."

Since 2005, the Best Places to Work in New Jersey awards program has recognized the top employers that benefit New Jersey's workplace, businesses and economy. The 100 companies selected as the Best Places to Work in New Jersey were determined by an evaluation of each nominated company's workplace philosophy, demographics, systems, policies and practices, as well as a survey of employee satisfaction, experiences and engagement.

"A culture that rewards skill, collaboration and a dedication to our clients' best interests does not occur in a vacuum, but this award is a tremendous validation of our approach to create a productive and engaging environment," said Karen Pellicone, Chief Operations Officer of JCPR. "The fact that our employees once again have made us one of the Best Places to Work in New Jersey is truly an honor, and we will build upon this distinction by continuing to attract the highest-caliber employees and clients."

NJBIZ and the awards program's sponsors and partners will honor the 100 Best Places to Work in New Jersey and announce their rankings during an awards dinner and ceremony on Wednesday, April 25 at the Hilton East Brunswick. The program is sponsored by Gibbons, P.C. and Novo Nordisk, in partnership with the Garden State Council SHRM, New Jersey State Chamber, Employers Association of New Jersey and New Jersey Economic Development Authority.
