Campaign’s Best Places to Work, 2021
OG’s company culture has always been something we pride ourselves on. So, we’re delighted to announce that we’ve been ranked 7th overall in the 2021 Campaign’s Best Places to Work.
And (as if that wasn’t enough reason to celebrate) we’ve also placed 2nd in the medium companies list.
The Best Places to Work programme recognises and honours the best workplaces in the marketing, advertising and media professions.
All entrants to Campaign’s Best Places to Work had to complete a two-part application process.
- The first consisted of submitting a written entry, helping the judges evaluate each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics.
- The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience.
The combined scores determined the final ranking – and we’re so pleased to have performed so highly, especially after the events of 2020.
Kavita Shergill, Head of Talent & Culture at Octopus Group, commented on the results:
“We’ve had a whirlwind 14 months, with lots of difficult and challenging times. But we’ve stuck at it, worked our socks off, joined an international agency and more.
Through it all, keeping OG a Great Place to Work has remained a priority. Aided by staff ideas and suggestions, we’ve kept things fresh, changed the things that aren’t working and made sure we’re still a family, even over a screen.
Honestly, the best bit about this is that the feedback provided in the survey has contributed towards this outcome, alongside our written entry. So, it’s a very genuine result, which stands a lot more ground and feels like a real win”
