We recognise that businesses should work as systems, not silos, and therefore have various initiatives in place to help us grow together as people and as a company. Be it work or play, we want every employee to feel part of the MediaCom team.
We really strive for an open dialogue throughout the company. The Big Conversation gives employees the opportunity to hear from our CEO Josh and submit anonymous questions so that they can really learn more about what goes on in the agency from senior management.
These are regular sessions that encourage people from across the building to talk for five minutes on a designated, but very open, topic. Subject matters have ranged from ‘Creativity’ to ‘2017’ and have challenged and inspired new thinking.
It’s important to spend time away from the office and to unwind and bond. Our social club organises events throughout the year, from an overnight stay to karaoke sessions, themed nights and cinema trips. Events are funded by both the company and individuals, so look no further for a value for money night out!
If I Ran the Company
We want our employees to be involved in improving and evolving the agency, so we offer the opportunity to pitch ideas in groups to our senior management. This helps us come up with innovative thinking and ensures that everyone has a voice on important agency issues and reinforces our ‘One MediaCom’ philosophy.
Lunch & Learn
We invite inspiring and thought-provoking people into the building every couple of months to talk about what makes them tick. The sessions often cover topics outside the world outside of media planning and buying. Special guests so far include Pixar Animation Studios’ Matthew Luhn, renowned digital prophet Shingy and Goldsmiths’ psychology and neuroscience lecturer Rebecca Chamberlain.
Back to the Shop Floor
There is always something to be learned from different parts of the vast MediaCom Business, and the industry as a whole. Back to the Shop Floor encourages our senior members of staff to spend time working with a team on the ground to see the reality of daily life for employees and learn from it.
