We’re delighted to announce Somo ranked #2 in medium-sized agencies and #6 overall in this year’s Campaign Live’s Best Places to Work 2019 ranking. The ranking is run by the prestigious Campaign Magazine in partnership with the leading talent and training provider The Industry Club and the independent research company The Best Companies Group (BCG). Currently in its second year, Best Places to Work is a survey and an awards programme aimed to identify the top 50 employers in media, marketing and advertising – whether it’s due to their culture, benefits programme, flexible working opportunities or employee engagement and satisfaction levels.
‘In today’s competitive employer landscape, there is an increased focus on creating a collaborative open culture focused on the growth and wellbeing of individual team members. This has always been a key focus for us forming part of our DNA so it's great to be recognised for it’, said Carl Uminski, Somo’s COO. ‘Regular social meet-ups, inspiring peer talks, and Hack Days aimed to get everyone across the business to experiment with new emerging tech and ideas are just a few of the programmes that form the foundation of our culture. We’re a value-led business and empower our staff with tools and benefits that underlie our four key values: Create Success, Lead with Knowledge, Love Innovation and Be Brave’.
