AD AGE BEST PLACE TO WORK 2015
New York, N.Y. (Nov. 16, 2015) – POSSIBLE, a WPP Digital creative agency, today was named one of the Best Places to Work in Advertising & Media by Advertising Age. POSSIBLE was selected based on criteria such as hiring practices, benefits packages, salaries, office perks, workplace environment, and design.
Among the notable perks offered by POSSIBLE are a very flexible work environment, early office closures or additional time off during the summer, and activities that promote an active lifestyle such as onsite massages, bicycle storage areas, and weekly yoga and stretch sessions. Additionally, some offices are dog-friendly. You can check out our office pooches on social with #DogsofPOSSIBLE.
“As always, the competition was tough. Out of the hundreds of companies who applied, we’re calling out more honorees than ever before. Fifty big shops, independents, agencies, ad tech, and media companies earned recognition for being leaders in recruiting, retaining, and cultivating talent,” said Ken Wheaton, editor of Advertising Age. “At the end of the day all these organizations are in the talent business and they’re doing it right. They’re finding interesting, relevant, and often unexpected ways to create cultures and work environments that keep employees engaged.”
“Out of all of our accomplishments as an agency, this is the one that makes me the most proud,” says Shane Atchison, POSSIBLE global CEO.
Martha Hiefield, global chief talent officer, adds: “Building trust and relationships with each other creates an environment where we can produce the best work for our clients. It also simply makes coming to work a blast.”
Submissions were evaluated by Advertising Age research partner Buck Consultants LLC. With nearly a century of experience in employee and human resource consulting, Buck crafted two surveys to help Advertising Age find the companies with the best benefits and most engaged employees. The employer survey contained about 100 questions, including questions about pay, promotions, health care, and other benefits and hiring practices. The employee survey contained about 50 questions. It measured aspects of the workplace environment that contribute to an engaged staff, including matters such as fairness of pay, vacation time, relationships with management and co-workers, career development, and other workplace issues. Any agency, ad tech, or media company with more than 40 full-time employees in the U.S. was eligible.
