Leading media recruitment company Pathfinders declared Addiction Worldwide ‘Media Employer of the Year’ at their 12th annual awards ceremony. Pathfinders form part of the Angela Mortimer PLC Corporation. The shortlisted agencies faced tough competition this year for the highly respected award. Addiction Worldwide were closely rivalled by the likes of Publicis, Porter Novellli and Shine Communications.
Pathfinders Director Wendy Duprey gave great praise to the Addiction Worldwide team:
“Our winner this year was considered to have truly inspiring, entrepreneurial & effective people strategies, all of which contributes towards a fantastic working culture. This is a team, which even in the best of times, like to do things differently. The company’s nurturing of talent demonstrated real purpose and excellence. As the economic climate grew tougher they met the challenge with real step-change and brave approaches with which to move forward, enabling them to emerge as the exemplary employer they are today. It is also unusual to see Directors so in touch with how their people strategies impact on profitability and the relationship between talent and the bottom line.”
Pathfinders’ Media Employer of the Year is the UK’s only annual award which recognises media companies’ ability to inspire and develop their staff. Previous winners include Penguin Books, Oglivy & Mather and Blue Rubicon.
Addiction Worldwide CEO Jeremy Rainbird said:
“Our culture is something the people have created, we act as enablers in order to keep cultivating it. We work hard at this because we not only recognise there is a bottom line benefit but also that it is a crucial factor in being an innovative organisation. Continually developing a culture that is conducive to creativity is something we will always do and we are delighted to be recognised for our efforts.”
The award-winning agency currently has 65 staff across London and New York. Their collaborative approach entitled ‘Connected Creativity’ seeks to bring together a combination of skills to deliver insightful and creative results, by truly connecting consumers and brands.
