BPTW2018Logo_Over100 (1).jpgOMD has been recognised as one of the Top 50 Best Places to Work in Australia, according to the annual study conducted by The Great Places to Work Institute across all industries in Australia. This makes OMD the only communications agency to have ranked in the prestigious listing for ten consecutive years.
The Best Places to Work study is widely acclaimed. Based on one of the world's most comprehensive studies of workplace culture, the quality of participants in this year's study was higher than ever. The results are a testament to these companies' commitment to retaining happy, engaged, loyal, high performing workforces and the innovative strategies that they implement during challenging times.
Says Zrinka Lovrencic, managing director, Great Place to Work Australia: "This is an exciting, transformative and competitive time for companies. Those that have made the 2018 list have risen to this challenge and exemplify workplace culture excellence."
Ranked number 6 in the list of Australian companies with over 100 employees, OMD were acknowledged for its continued focus on its people. This includes flexible working, health and wellbeing programs, diversity and inclusion as well as its parental leave policy.

Says Aimee Buchanan, CEO, OMD Australia: "We are delighted to hit the milestone of a decade as one of the 50 best places to work in Australia. At OMD, we focus on sustainable growth for the business, whilst continuing to maintain the culture. We know our people are our greatest asset, and it's this approach which has built the unique culture that we are so proud of."
As the top ranked agency in the Top 50 Best Places to Work, OMD's ongoing focus on its people has directly translated to commercial success. Over the last 18 months the agency has won a number of new clients, including NSW Government, Belong, TripAdvisor, Queensland McDonald's, Simplot, UBET and consolidated Qantas International. They also importantly retained existing clients including Beiersdorf. This has culminated in OMD Australia taking the top spot for Australia's Number 1 media agency in size, according to RECMA's 2018 'Overall Activity Volume Rankings' report. Additionally, the company was named first in profile classification with a dominant profile for the 3rd consecutive year, along with vitality ranking and structure ranking.
Over the past year, OMD Australia has been consistently recognised on the award front including the Campaign Asia Talent Team of the Year and Corporate Communications Team of the Year, the MFA People and Culture Initiative award as well as the B&T Women in Media Employer of The Year award for 2017. They were also shortlisted as Mumbrella Travel Marketing's Media Agency of the Year and were voted in the AFR's Most 100 Innovative Companies this year.
Says Martin Cowie, people and development director, OMD Australia: "OMD has long believed that focusing on hiring and developing the best people is the key to business success. This mantra has certainly paid dividends in 2018. It's a great feeling to have this chance to reflect on the steps we've taken to achieve this success and to celebrate the impact that it has had on our people."
