New York Media took the top spot in two categories in this year’s Digiday Worklife Awards, which recognize media and marketing’s top employers as well as the cultural initiatives that make them unique. The company has been awarded Best Onboarding Process and chief HR officer, Lou Gretta, was named HR Leader of the Year.

Since joining New York Media in 2017, Gretta has focused on subcultures in the organization, resulting in positive employee feedback in the areas of management, communication and recognition.

Also taking top honors is Bloomberg Media Group, which won for Most Innovative Culture at a publisher. Bloomberg Media established workflows that consistently lead to new product creation across its global footprint.

Each winner will be celebrated at the Digiday Awards gala, which will be held Nov. 14 at The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers in NYC. Tickets to the gala are available for purchase here.
