Creative agency Carmichael Lynch is a double winner in this year’s Digiday WorkLife Awards, which honors the media and marketing world’s best work environments as well as the values and cultural initiatives that make them unique. The Minneapolis-based agency, which hosts up-and-coming local musicians on its rooftop in the summer, won awards for Most Innovative Culture and Most Committed to Diversity and Inclusion.

Full-service agency RPA is the other double winner, going home with Employer of the Year and HR Leader of the Year, awarded to associate HR director Laura Small. The agency prides itself on its employee retention: according to the agency, one in five employees have been with the company for over ten years.

On the media side, lifestyle publisher Brit + Co also won for Most Innovative Culture, and Dotdash (formerly About.com) won the award for Executive Team of the Year. Technology platform Arkadium won Employer of the Year in the technology category.

The full list of winners appears below. They will be honored alongside the Top Boss, Digiday Signal Awards and Digiday Awards winners at the Digiday Awards Gala on Nov. 7 at the Edison Ballroom in New York City.
