MediaCom has been recognised as the 43rd best overall company to work for and the 4th Most Respectful Company in The BRW survey, Best Places to Work 2011, lists the top 50 best employers nationally.
Toby Jenner, CEO said “What is so gratifying is that 60% of the survey is a direct measure of the Great Places to Work Cultural Audit which was completed by our people nationally. This achievement is simply a reflection of how our team feels about working at MediaCom in comparison to other businesses”.
MediaCom set about developing and articulating the agency’s culture 18 months ago with the appointment of Efi Richter to the role of Head of People and Culture. In the intervening period the agency has introduced a number of industry leading initiatives which include a unique set of company behaviours, developed by their people for their people, which inform how they hire, reward and recognise their people. This includes the introduction of a “Work Life Balance” programme that facilitates changes to embrace individual lifestyle choices to help deliver a much looked-for work life balance.
Efi Richter, National Head of People and Culture said “Our biggest strength is our people, so it is makes sense to put them at the centre of everything that we do. It is our people who create our unique culture and the achievements that come with it. It is humbling to be acknowledged; equally it validates our commitment to developing our people, and the importance of creating an environment that people want to come to everyday”.
