- Commitment to work-life balance includes a holiday allowance far above the industry average; bonus day rewards for long service; and the offer of full-hybrid working for staff
- Competitive financial support in line with cost-of-living to ensure staff are paid fairly; discretionary Christmas and spot bonuses for high performance
The annual awards are a celebration of the best work across the creative industry, from freelancers to agencies to multinational brands, judged by a panel of global brand marketers and agency leaders.
