Talent Engagement

Unify culture to create an inclusive, equitable and sustainable work environment that drives employee engagement.

Our Approach

At 鶹ýAV, we recognize our people are our greatest asset in creating a genuinely healthy business that delivers excellent results for employees, clients, stakeholders and the communities we touch. As the world of advertising and technology becomes increasingly complex, we are continually assessing and evolving our talent engagement practices to ensure we prioritize what matters most to employees.

This includes driving employee growth and development opportunities, enhancing diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEI&B) initiatives, and investing in our communities.

Culture & Engagement

鶹ýAV has brought together multiple organizations in recent years, each with its own unique culture. We have retained the best aspects of these various organizations while adapting practices to a geographically distributed workforce, which includes a hybrid working model. Building sustained employee engagement in our new hybrid work model requires a reinvention of fostering engagement and a reassessment of community and collaboration. 鶹ýAV’s core values of ‘See the Big Picture’, ‘Raise the Bar’, ‘Empower Others’, and ‘Own the Results’ are guiding principles of the design and implementation of people-centric programs and initiatives across the organization.

鶹ýAV firmly believes in a culture of transparency and trust, and aims to provide ample opportunity for all 鶹ýAVs to ask questions, interface with leadership, and express their preferences. For instance, our monthly all-hands, development opportunities with leadership cohorts, and leadership competency workshops give groups the chance to connect with leadership; while our bi-annual employee engagement surveys uncover actionable insights around engagement, development opportunities, strategy and operations, leadership, diversity and ESG initiatives.

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

Diversity, equity, and inclusion at 鶹ýAV is not a static initiative, but rather a living representation of the values of 鶹ýAV’s employees and stakeholders. 鶹ýAV’s DE&I mission and vision aim to challenge existing practices and expectations to address the needs of employees and our communities on a consistent and measurable basis, in a way that aligns with the unique culture of 鶹ýAV and the advertising and technology industries as a whole.

MISSION

  • To establish 鶹ýAV as a thought leader and visionary in corporate DE&I efforts by diversifying voices within 鶹ýAV, cultivating a culture in which employees feel safe as their authentic selves, and sponsoring investment strategies to support 鶹ýAV’s local communities.

VISION

  • To apply a diversity, equity and inclusion lens to everything we do – from our platform and brand, to the entire employee experience.

鶹ýAV’s People team includes dedicated DE&I resources that are supported by 鶹ýAV’s internal DE&I council, Magnify. Magnify is a group of internal employees, rotating yearly, who serve as internal voices to advise, vet, and champion DE&I programs and initiatives. All 鶹ýAV executives are aligned with a DE&I pillar (External Investments, Employee Experience, Recruiting and Advancement, Environmental Sustainability) to offer support, guidance, and buy-in at the leadership level. Currently, we have partnerships in place with Asians in Advertising, Brixton Finishing School, and , a non-profit organization that aims to facilitate women’s leadership in marketing, media, and tech, which includes complimentary memberships for all 鶹ýAVs and access to mentoring programs and ongoing programming. 鶹ýAV is proud to support a range of Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) including Prism (LGBTQ+), Parents and Caregivers, Thrive (Black Employee Network), Tikkun Olam (Jewish Employee Network), AIM (Asians in 鶹ýAV), and Environmental Sustainability. These groups offer community, connection, and programming for like-minded employees and identities. Additionally, 鶹ýAV reports DE&I and CSR measures via a quarterly Transparency Scorecard.

In addition to ongoing DE&I initiatives, 鶹ýAV has a zero-tolerance policy for discrimination and harassment. All employees must complete Ethics and Harassment training, and our policy is distributed to all employees upon hire and acknowledged every year.

Community Investment

鶹ýAV understands the importance of responsible stewardship and aims to be a positive member of our local communities through programs, support, and corporate donations aligned with company values. 鶹ýAV’s employees are passionate about many unique causes and we are proud to support global donation matching to any certified non-profit organization.

We partner with to facilitate donation matching and provide regular opportunities to invest in and give back to our communities as a company. We also offer support and resources to employees and their families that have been impacted by unforeseen global circumstances (including but not limited to natural disasters, tragedies, and political unrest) and have disaster response plans in place to ensure the safety, care, and wellbeing of employees.

Talent Retention & Development

鶹ýAV recognizes that our most critical resource lies with our amazing people, and we understand that attracting, developing, and retaining talent is critical to our continued success. 77% of employees report that they are provided with opportunities to learn skills and build new capabilities regularly. We know development requires a concerted and intentional effort, so we continue to outline, clarify, and implement growth paths related to career progression at 鶹ýAV to ensure employees can grow personally and professionally.

An environment of continuous learning and curiosity is also important to our culture. We continue to invest in learning and development and leadership development by expanding our dedicated resources for these functions. Our primary focus is to provide educational support for new 鶹ýAVs, foundational skill development for the professional growth of existing 鶹ýAVs, and cohesive support and training for our global people managers.

We conduct quarterly goal reviews for all employees and all employees receive annual performance reviews. While goals and achievements related to day-to-day roles are routine, 鶹ýAV encourages personal development goals in alignment with employees’ broader professional goals.
