New York, N.Y. (Nov. 19, 2015) – inVNT, a global brand communications agency recently acquired by Time Inc., was named 9th among Advertising Age’s 50 Best Places to Work in Advertising & Media. inVNT also received Ad Age’s “Cream of the Crop” distinction for companies receiving the highest rankings in overall employee experience. Nearly 20,000 employees were surveyed as part of this selection process, and Advertising Age determined that “the happiest employees are empowered and have a sense of purpose.” Known for its “Challenge Everything” mantra, reflected in a vibrant company culture and dynamic work environment, inVNT’s motivated team applauded their company’s work-life balance, diversity, career development opportunities, hiring practices, benefits packages, salaries, office perks, and workplace environment/design.
inVNT creates and produces experiences for some of the world’s largest companies and trade associations, making remarkable moments that stir emotions and challenge convention, mindsets, competitors and the market. The firm’s challenger spirit rewards creativity and passion by encouraging a balanced work-life that includes flexible schedules/locations and a no-questions-asked unlimited leave policy.
inVNT’s expansive, fluid workspace is designed to evolve organically, supporting seamless communication, enhancing in-depth collaboration and inspiring its signature forward-thinking irreverence. As inVNT experiences tremendous company-wide growth, the award-winning work environment will continue to be fueled by the vision, creativity and ambitions of the inVNT team.

We welcome diversity, encourage debate and empower team members to realize their greatness. We are passionate about forging a workplace that consistently attracts the best talent in the industry and are honored that Advertising Age has recognized our vibrant work environment, alongside so many other great agencies, for the second year in a row.”
“As always, the competition was tough,” said Advertising Age editor, Ken Wheaton. “Fifty big shops, independents, agencies, ad tech, and media companies earned recognition for being leaders in recruiting, retaining and cultivating talent. At the end of the day all these organizations are in the talent business, and they’re doing it right. They’re finding interesting, relevant and often unexpected ways to create cultures and work environments that keep employees engaged.”
Submissions were evaluated by Advertising Age research partner Buck Consultants LLC, well-known employee and human resource consultants with nearly a century of experience. Buck Consultants crafted extensive employer and employee surveys to help Advertising Age find the companies with the best benefits and most-engaged employees. Any agency, ad tech or media company with more than 40 full-time employees in the U.S. was eligible.
