CONWAY, Ark.— July 18, 2017 — Acxiom® (Nasdaq: ACXM), the data foundation for the world’s best marketers, was recently named among 36 companies as one of the Best Places to Work in Arkansas. This fifth annual program was created by Arkansas Business and Best Companies Group; the survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in Arkansas, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce and businesses.
Headquartered in Arkansas with 3,000 employees across 10 countries and 21 cities, Acxiom provides staff perks including on-site cafeterias and gyms, fitness reimbursement, expanded parental leave, the option to own stock, and an expansive discount program on everything from cars to vacations to Broadway shows.

As Acxiom continues to grow through organic hiring, mergers and acquisitions, it embraces the unique qualities of its location to further enhance its distinct corporate culture.
“Congratulations to our associates, whose exceptional passion, intellect and integrity fuel our workplace,” said Jerry Jones, Chief Ethics and Legal Officer, EVP and Assistant Secretary at Acxiom. “We’re proud to be recognized, because it’s validation of our amazing people.”
Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Arkansas. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics, while the second consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience.

- Be a for-profit, not-for-profit business or government entity
