STAMFORD, Conn., March 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Lockwood Group (Lockwood), a medical communications agency, was recently named one of the 2016 Best Places to Work in Connecticut by the Hartford Business Journal, for the second year in a row. The award recognizes companies who have been successful in creating and maintaining workplace excellence. The winners were determined through a survey conducted by The Best Companies Group, that ranked businesses with the most satisfied employees.
The agency, led by Matthew Schecter, is especially proud of this year's award as the agency saw record growth in the last year, now employing over 100 team members.
"Our unique business model allows us to scale quickly, and responsibly, to meet the needs of our clients while maintaining the supportive culture that we prioritize here at Lockwood," Schecter said.
Two-time winner Lockwood collaborates with clients in the pharmaceutical, biotech, genetic, and medical device industries to identify effective, holistic, science-based strategies to address their objectives through medical communications.

This flexible structure provides better work-life balance, which in turn allows Lockwood to attract the best talent who facilitate their best work, and as a result, are more responsive to clients, wherever and whenever they do business.
"Matt's commitment to fostering collaboration and comradery within the agency is regularly demonstrated through the technology he deploys, in the support he creates when bringing small and large groups of team members together, and with the updated Stamford office space he unveiled in December," said LeAnne Walstra, Group Vice President of Client Services.
