People & Culture

I’m extremely pleased to announce our sponsorship of the People & Culture Award at this years AdNews Agency of the Year awards. As the founding partner, we’re particularly proud to see an individual award to recognise the most employee-focused marketing businesses in Australia.

"Over 82% of candidates list culture as an important factor when selecting a new place to work."

Working closely with marketing talent, we hear firsthand which companies are focusing on their People & Culture. Supporting this award allows us to recognise Agencies, Marketing Teams, Media and Tech businesses within the Marketing Communications Industry who are raising the bar.

Over 82% of candidates list culture as an important factor when selecting a new place to work, ahead of career development and the brands they will work on, according to over 500 respondents to the iknowho candidate survey.
