As part of our "People First" philosophy, our primary focus is to grow our talent, not just as media practitioners, but as people.Our responsibility is to make MediaCom a Place to Grow.We want to create an environment that encourages and rewards people who are relentless in their desire to develop and are inspired to lead -not manage- their clients. Part of this is giving employees every opportunity to grow and adapt.What does this mean for our people? A chance to Grow Your Career, Grow You and Grow Together.
Our people's growth starts from the moment they join us.We have a multi-format induction approach to help set them up for success. It’s a three-month journey including a meeting with other new starters for a broad snapshot of the company, presentations, Q&As and a quick-fire intro to each department that we like to call the MediaCom Jam!Training and DevelopmentWe have a comprehensive training programme that ensures everyone has the opportunity to be the best they can be. There are targeted programmes for every level to help our people develop their skills and progress their career, including skills training specific to their role, in-depth digital training, and leadership development.Career MobilityWhen we find the right person, we don’t like to lose them! So when our people are ready for a new challenge, we welcome conversations about a different department, a new client or a new discipline – be that a sideways move or a promotion.Connected PitchingConnected Pitching is MediaCom’s annual faux pitching event where everyone across the agency gets the opportunity to participate in the pitch process. It’s an industry-leading course that provides you with a thorough understanding of the strategic and implementational approach to pitching.Method PlanningOur Method Insight programme enables MediaCommers to get out into the real world and under the skin of the consumer to discover what makes them tick. Working in the same way as Method acting, teams are rewarded for how far they can push themselves into the lives of their audience.Pinch from a PitchPinch from a Pitch is a regular event in which we share work from new business pitches. Pitch teams take MediaCommers through the processes, ideas and learnings from a recent pitch process in order to give everyone a better understanding of the world of New Business.
