About/FAQ | North America | EMEA | North America Summary
Best Agency to Work For is possibly the only predictive award the Holmes Report gives out. By this, we mean there’s a direct correlation between the agencies on this list and those that take home our biggest honor (often times at some point in the future) — Agency of the Year recognition. That’s, in part, because firms that take culture seriously tend to attract and retain smart and creative talent who, in turn, produce stellar work. It’s a simple formula but one that’s easily overlooked amid the breathless pace and tremendous pressures that are a seemingly inevitable reality of agency life. But this pace is exactly why agencies shouldn’t underestimate the power its culture has on the work its employees produce.
The firms recognized on the rankings include a few holding companies firms, but mostly independents. Some have generous benefits, others prioritize professional development or interesting work that keeps talent engaged. We’re working on an in-depth feature that will more deeply explore the factors that drive employee engagement within our industry. All participating firms can also obtain their own results mapped against either the industry or its competitive set. (For more information on this, see FAQ.)

BEST AGENCY TO WORK FOR, EMEA
#1 One Philosophy (Independent)
The Ukraine-based One Philosophy is a multidisciplinary group of communications companies. Founder Nataliya Popovych has made it a priority to grow leaders and talent through investments in employee education and development. The management ask employees about their professional priorities and then tailors its training programs for employees. In response to this, the firm developed "Wednesday Learning Sessions" to be centered on topics beyond communications. Because feedback is also crucial to the firm's culture, the annual evaluations are designed to be honest dialogues rather than a formal management-led activity.
As part of its CSR commitment, firm started the "Has To Be So" movement for people with disabilities to integrate more fully into life in Ukraine both professionally and socially. One Philosophy also provides employees access to a free library, composed of newest and impactful books and magazines on business, culture, artwork and design, located in the new One Philosophy Space, designed for daily inspiration and collaboration. More casual benefits include additional days-off for birthdays or child’s birthday, work-from-home one day per week and office yoga on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. The firm conducts monthly town halls to celebrate achievements, birthdays and other milestones.
