Havas Worldwide London has been awarded Pathfinders Media Employer of the Year. The award, created by Pathfinders recruitment, is the UK’s only annual award, which recognises media companies’ ability to inspire and develop their staff. The finalists for 2013 included Frank PR, PHD and Kindred.
The selection and awards process requires agencies to submit written submissions, with shortlisted agencies interviewed by a panel of expert judges from a range of HR and agency backgrounds. Testimonials and evidence of business effect are required as part of the process.
Russ Lidstone, CEO, Havas Worldwide London said: “"Our culture and people are our most important assets and fundamental to our success as a creative business. I’m really proud that our company initiatives, approach to staff engagement, career progression and motivation has been recognised with this prestigious award."
