Overall ranking: #6
Name: MediaCom
Organisation size: Large
Strongest award element: Inclusion

MediaCom have embedded their philosophy of ‘people first = better results’ into the core of its culture to create a fully inclusive workplace in which everyone is has a voice and every voice is heard.

A small insight into this Inspiring Workplace…
‘Our aim to be the most inclusive agency means we make brave decisions and face into inequity. We know it is important for
our leadership teams – the people responsible for making MediaCom a safe place – to understand how systemic oppression,
racism and inequities manifest if they are going to be able to change things. So with this in mind, we undertook an intensive
learning programme for 250 of our most senior people to understand how racism, sexism and all bias arise and show up at
work, and how to deal with them.

We have 8 ERGs – employee-led employee resource groups making sure diverse voices are heard. The ERGs cover Faith,
Ethnicity, Age, LGBTQ+, Gender, Mental Health, Disability and Sustainability. They communicate directly with our leadership
team on a regular basis to express and work on how MediaCom can better understand and represent these communities and
identities.

We have set targets for each department based on the current representation of Black, Asian, and ethnic minority staff to
accelerate diversity at all levels.’
