Corporate Barter Company ICON International, Great Employer

ICON International, a specialty finance company engaged in corporate barter, was selected as one of the top �25 Best places to work� in Connecticut for 2008.

The complete list and specific rankings will be unveiled at a special awards ceremony on March 25, and will be published in the March 31 issue of the Hartford Business Journal.

�This is a significant accomplishment; one that we have strived to attain,� says Richard Upton, senior vice president of Human Resources at ICON International. �We have a cohesive organization of talented and dynamic people. Together we have achieved a positive work environment that not only focuses on profitability but employee satisfaction.�

The firm competed against many other companies statewide for the position. The �Best Companies to Work For� in Connecticut are selected based on a stringent employee survey process conducted by a third party.

ICON scored high marks in all categories: (1) organization as a whole, (2) individual employee opinion, and (3) team infrastructure. Employees expressed their gratification with the company�s strong leadership, compensation and benefits, support for work-life balance, communication practices, corporate citizenship, and additional perks.

A subsidiary of Omnicom Group, ICON is a strategic holding company that manages a portfolio of global market leaders. Omnicom�s companies operate in the disciplines of advertising, marketing services, specialty communications, interactive/digital media, and media buying services.
