Office of the President December 2021 Update

Dec 7, 2021

As news of the ‘Great Resignation’ and tight labor market continues to make headlines, our group of companies has made significant strides to keep our employees happy and engaged. With robust client needs and business at an all-time high, there are a few major changes the agency put into place to reward our team and increase employee retention.

At Noisy Trumpet Digital & PR’s annual Christmas Luncheon on December 6th, we unveiled a new bonus program called “The Lagniappe Bonus”. Lagniappe in French means ‘a little something extra’. The goal of the program is to give our employees a little something extra over and above compensation programs already in place-to show our immense appreciation for their work.

Starting in January 2022, every employee will receive an additional $6,500 in annual compensation! That’s right every employee. Part of the money will be paid throughout the year as part of each employees bi-weekly payroll with $2,500 paid out early December each year at our Christmas Party. The Lagniappe bonus plus the existing Christmas tenure bonus and Volunteerism Matters bonus pushes employee compensation to the highest level ever, providing a significant total compensation package.

The company also announced new paid holidays in 2022, giving employees more PTO time off.

When health insurance premiums increased by 9% for 2022, the company agreed to pay 100% of the difference.

Finally, our hybrid work schedule will continue indefinitely, providing more work-life balance for our staff.

Noisy Trumpet strives to be San Antonio’s digital and PR agency employer of choice. Continually improving benefits, balance and productivity will remain an important objective to ensure our employees want to grow with us over the long term,” stated Fran Yanity, Noisy Trumpet’s President/CEO.
