For the sixth year running OMD have been included in the ‘BRW Best Places to Work 2014’ listing.
No other communications business has enjoyed such consistent longevity in this sought after community.
The BRW Best Places to Work study is widely acclaimed in Australia. Based on one of the world’s most comprehensive studies of workplace culture by Great Place to Work Australia, the quality of this year’s study was higher than ever.
OMD is a business built on the firm foundation that attracting and nurturing the best talent and providing them with a dynamic environment where they can thrive personally and professionally equates to business success for themselves and their clients.
Peter Horgan, CEO OMD Australia commented: “To be ranked in the top 50 great places to work in Australia for six consecutive years is no small achievement, it is also no accident. We were the first media communications agency to be ranked in the listing by some margin, and our people mission to be ‘The best place to work, and the place doing the best work’ remains as relevant to us today as it was six years ago.”
Martin Cowie, people and development director added: “We are fiercely proud and protective of the unique culture we have fostered at OMD. In an agency of our size it takes a continuous focus, and is never off the agenda. Last year we were recognised with the Mumbrella Award for Culture and the Campaign Asia ANZ Talent Management Team of the year award, as well as taking home Cannes Global Agency of the Year and Campaign Asia ANZ Agency of the Year. But our clearest indicator of success is that in a notoriously high churn industry our staff turnover remains well below the industry average.”
“People should take note of the companies that comprise this study” stated Zrinka Lovrencic, MD of Great Place to Work Australia, the firm behind the Best Places to Work Study. “These will be the companies that attract and retain the most skilled, loyal, and innovative employees in the coming years.”
