Company Information

THE UK DIVISION of this global marketing services company thinks big — its creative minds have produced advertising for the likes of Sky, Santander and Warburtons, and launched an NHS blood donation campaign. Its 720-strong workforce operates from London headquarters and three satellite offices around the country.

People here are highly motivated, considering work an important part of their lives, an 83% positive score on this question. It looks after them well in return, with 64% of the workforce earning more than £35,000. Chief executive Debbie Klein has allocated a bonus budget to every department for spontaneous rewards to those who go the extra mile.

Non-financial incentives include extra days of leave and having your own personalised figure added to a Lego wall of fame. With other activities including weekly yoga classes and a choir, employees don’t believe their health is suffering because of work (77%). Staff say their managers care about them as individuals (79%) and regularly express appreciation for a job well done (78%).

Team-building exercises last year included a day of challenges on a private island in the Thames, and sporty sessions with England netball coaches. Colleagues think their teams are fun to work with (84%).

All new joiners enjoy a welcome breakfast with Klein and group managing director Simon Peck who offer their insights into the secrets behind this operation’s success.
