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.
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 an 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. This year, we recognize three agencies that took top honors in their respective categories across EMEA. (For more information on the process and categories, see FAQs.)
Trophies for the top ranking agencies will be presented at the 2019 EMEA Awards in London on Wednesday, May 22. Tickets can be purchased here.
