NEW YORK May 9, 2023 – The Decker/Royal Agency has been named to Inc. magazine’s annual Best Workplaces list. Featured in the May/June 2023 issue, which hits newsstands on May 16, 2023, and prominently featured on Inc.com, the list is the result of a comprehensive measurement of American companies that have excelled in creating exceptional workplaces and company culture, whether operating in a physical or a virtual facility.
Founded by travel industry veterans, Cathleen Decker and Stacy Royal, the award-winning communications and marketing firm specializes in growing travel brands in travel with teams in New York, London and Toronto.

After collecting data from thousands of submissions, Inc. selected 591 honorees this year. Each company that was nominated took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, which included topics such as management effectiveness, perks, fostering employee growth, and overall company culture. The organization’s benefits were also audited to determine overall score and ranking.
“We are a people-driven company with the belief that happy employees make for happy clients,” said Stacy Royal, co-founder of The Decker/Royal Agency. “We were hybrid before Covid-19, and now we’re fully remote, so we know it’s crucial to build an environment that fosters motivation, creativity, and trust. We believe the culture we’ve created is why we have proudly retained 85% of employees since 2014.”
“Being named to Best Workplaces is an honor that only a small fraction of companies have been able to claim,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “Proving to the world that you’re a magnet for talent and have a culture that keeps teams engaged, productive, and proud to come to work is a truly remarkable achievement.”
