NEW YORK, Nov. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- North 6th Agency, Inc. (N6A), an award-winning communications agency, today announced it will be opening a first-of-its-kind 'Night Owl' media specialist position in 2017.
The position will work the overnight shift from N6A's headquarters in the heart of SoHo in New York City, beginning at 10 PM and ending the following morning with a seamless handover to the core N6A team as the next day gets underway.
"Our 'Night Owl' position is unprecedented in that it will ensure our clients that N6A never sleeps for them," said Matt Rizzetta, CEO of N6A. "Today's news cycle is fast-moving, unpredictable and non-stop, so we wanted to ensure our clients that our service and hands-on approach would match the same pace, urgency and rapid-response time."
The 'Night Owl' position was borne from an experimental customer service practice that N6A created earlier this year. As part of its "Year of the Customer" initiative – where N6A models a different customer service practice each month after a well-known brand – N6A experimented with the concept of working around the clock in June. During that month, N6A divvied up hours among everyone in the company and assigned a dedicated 'Night Owl' team to cover the overnight shift until sunrise the following morning. The 'Night Owl' month was documented through pictures and diary entries at this link.
Among the core functions of the 'Night Owl' position are; breaking news media outreach, overseas market news monitoring, international media outreach, overnight social media content and monitoring, relationship development with morning and weekend beat reporters.
N6A's 'Night Owl' position comes with fully-covered commuting costs, an expense account for meals, flexible work-from-home arrangements, as well as full enrollment in N6A's healthcare, 401K, PTO and vacation packages. Additionally, the 'Night Owl' position will be eligible for N6A's signature "Quality of Life" perks, including $1,000 Producer of the Week Salary Accelerators, Birthdays Off, "N6-get-Away" vacation competition, "N6A Bucket List Weekend" competition, "N6A Golden Group", "N6-leg-Acy" PTO package, "N6A Chairman's Pick" award, Team of the Month, and many more.
N6A has been recognized by Forbes.com for its unique customer service approach and data-driven commitment to generating results for clients. Most recently, N6A was named by O'Dwyer's as the #1 Fastest-Growing Firm in the United States, as well as the New York Observer Power Agency List, and as one of the "coolest spaces at the hottest PR firms."
