Wavemaker US Named Among the Best Places to Work by Ad Age for Second Year in a Row

January 17, 2020 GMT

NEW YORK, Jan. 17, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wavemaker US ( www.wavemakerglobal.com ) has once again been ranked as an Ad Age Best Place to Work, building on the momentum of their year one ranking.

The award recognizes the best agencies, ad tech firms, media marketing and brand marketing companies across both small and large-scale categories. Once again, it was Wavemaker’s company culture, growth opportunities, employee benefits and work-life balance offerings that earned it a spot among the list of the 25 best companies to work for (201+ employees).

“This is an amazing testament to the culture we’re building at Wavemaker through our every day actions,” said Amanda Richman, US CEO. “Passion, agility, collaboration, entrepreneurism, diversity – these values define who we are, how we behave, and how we grow our unique culture.”

This accolade is based on a number of different factors – results from an employee survey and an employer survey combine to form the basis for measurement. From basics such as fair pay, paid vacation and benefits to office culture, learning programs, flexible working, events and diversity and inclusion initiatives. While some offerings carried more weight than others, this year’s findings confirm that people value both professional and personal growth and success above all else. Which, based on Ad Age’s findings, can both be found at Wavemaker.

“A company is nothing without its people,” added Kristen Metzger, US Chief People Officer. “Our aim is to create a culture and environment where people can do their best work and feel a sense of purpose via shared goals and a sense of community – while being celebrated for being their authentic selves.”
