NEW YORK, January 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Mediaocean, the mission-critical platform for omnichannel advertising, today was named again to the Ad Age Best Places to Work for 2023 in the advertising technology category. Factors ranging from training and benefits to corporate culture and leadership were considered for the company to garner its top ten overall ranking, and top three in ad tech. This award reflects Mediaocean’s continued focus on creating a culture of innovation and equity – made possible through its learning and development programs, affinity groups, and global philanthropy efforts, among other initiatives.
"We are honored to be named one of the Ad Age Best Places to Work, and we remain committed to providing our employees with the best opportunities to make an impact in our industry," said Nicole Brown, SVP People & Culture at Mediaocean. "At Mediaocean, we foster a collaborative environment centered on inclusivity, accountability, and growth. More than anything, this achievement is a testament to our team's passion, which is at the heart of everything we do. We cultivate a workforce that not only embraces change, but leads it by being relentless about solving challenges and delivering results."
“I’m super proud of our team at Mediaocean and the culture we’ve created. With the shifting environment around the industry and the world, we’ve had to shift the way we work to align with the priorities of our people,” said Mediaocean Co-Founder and CEO, Bill Wise. “Since the pandemic began, we’ve acquired and integrated five companies and are now operating as one team with one dream. It’s no easy task but, given our pivotal role in the ad industry, we have the responsibility of fueling an ecosystem that maximizes the full potential of our employees, customers, and partners.”
The winners of Ad Age Best Places to Work for 2023 represent the highest overall numerical scores based on an analysis of questionnaires submitted by employers and survey responses from their employees. Ad Age’s scoring system factors in employee responses on topics including pay and benefits and seven other core focus areas (75% of the score) and a company’s policies and practices on areas including pay and benefits, work/life balance, recruitment, training and development (25% of the score). Ad Age produced Best Places to Work 2023 in partnership with the research firm Best Companies Group. The competition was open to agencies, ad tech firms, brand, or corporate marketing departments or groups, and in-house agencies of marketers.
“The tight labor market forced every business in the industry to compete for talent, and the 2023 Best Places to Work winners proved the value of understanding what employees want today,” said Dan Peres, president and editor-in-chief of Ad Age. “Companies will face challenges this year with the economy and the ongoing effects of the pandemic, but winning workplaces understand that taking care of employees is central to business success.”
