    Today, The Phelps Group hosted a blood drive to benefit pediatric and adult cancer patients at City of Hope Cancer Center. We called on our associates, as well as members of the community, to give the gift of life — and the response was phenomenal! More than 50 people made an appointment, while many others “walked in” to donate — and we are thrilled that we exceeded our goal of 35 useable units of blood!

    City of Hope patients rely on more than 25,000 units of blood and platelets each year for survival. There is no substitute or synthetic form of human blood; therefore, donations are vital to the men, women and children in City of Hope’s care. Every one of those units comes from caring people – family, friends and other generous individuals who want to make a difference. We thank all who came out to offer their support!

    Associates of The Phelps Group recently attended the unveiling of the California Coastal Commission’s new Whale Tail® Specialty License Plate at the Santa Monica Pier. The California Coastal Commission is currently promoting Stewards of the Coast, a campaign to support the revamped plate, which will culminate at the 27th Annual California Coastal Cleanup Day Saturday, Sept.17, 2011.

     

    As part of The Phelps Group’s 30th anniversary and the agency’s commitment to the environment and our community, we have been working with the commission to develop creative marketing materials -- posters, T-shirts, trash and recycling bags, outdoor advertising, emails and online banners -- to promote this year’s Coastal Cleanup Day, statewide, and achieve the goal of 100,000 event volunteers.

    For the fifth year in a row, The Phelps Group has been recognized by The Los Angeles Business Journal as one of L.A.’s “Best Places to Work”! The firm ranked 12th among all mid-sized companies – 25 to 249 local workers – in Los Angeles. The announcement was made during The Los Angeles Business Journal’s annual awards luncheon, held at the JW Marriott on Aug. 9.

    The poll, conducted by ModernThink, an independent research company, surveyed nearly 10,000 employees from hundreds of companies with headquarters or satellite offices in Los Angeles.  Key criteria in determining the top winners were culture of the organization, communication between employees, and growth opportunities available to workers.

    The Phelps Group offers a range of progressive workplace benefits, including reimbursement for education classes and programs, ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan), telecommuting, pet-friendly work environment, green workplace program, full-feedback environment, competitive pay and health benefits, weekly educational seminars, and hosted lunch twice a week.
