Training and Development

ME 2

Introduction

Learning and development at MediaCom is designed to support and enable our company vision: seeing the bigger picture. For our people, seeing the bigger picture means we champion the importance of whole-person wellbeing, and creating and maintaining an inclusive culture where everybody feels they can belong. We champion diversity in all senses, for our people and for our clients, because diversity enables the best work.

For our clients, seeing the bigger picture means having broader, deeper conversations that go beyond media to encompass all marketing activity, from e-commerce to brand health. This means being acclaimed for our digital and data-led work. It also means looking beyond our local office to plug in to the expertise needed.

For the industry, it means leading through the work we deliver, seeing beyond conventional thinking to uncover new ideas and new growth opportunities. We aim to drive the industry forward in the areas of diversity and inclusion, sustainability, and transparency, so that we have a positive impact on the wider world.

By developing our people and skills, we deliver against the objectives we are all working to achieve, which in turn, support our vision of seeing the bigger picture.​

Our programmes make up our pillars, which include digital, planning, DEI, and the future of work. The programmes include both digital and non-digital technical craft skills training, all aspects of DEI, line management development and leadership development.

Industry-recognised CPD

The IPA are our industry’s trade body, and we are proud to be members.​

We continue to be both Gold and Platinum-accredited by the IPA for our CPD (continuous professional development) programmes.

The number of hours our people spend learning each year contributes to these awards.​

Our people can access all our IPA-member benefits, including industry-specific training and talks.

Shared resources

We also have access to the development opportunities available through GroupM and WPP. Our industry charity, NABS, provide career coaching, masterclasses on a variety of topics, and provide a helpline. The IPA, our trade body, provide a range of informal sessions as well as accredited training programmes.

Examples include: high-performer programmes for each level in the business; line management skills support for all line managers; access to further/higher education via apprenticeships; and mental health, allyship and microaggression training for both our current people and all new starters.
