Today, MiQ, the world’s largest global independent programmatic media partner for brands and agencies, announced it has secured a spot on the Ad Age Best Places to Work 2023 list, under the category for companies with 200+ employees. The annual award ranks 50 companies in the marketing industry that lead the pack surrounding factors such as pay and benefits, corporate culture, and leadership that goes above and beyond to overcome today’s biggest challenges, some of which include a weakened economy, evolving media market, and a constrained talent pool.
Since MiQ’s inception, the company has injected its values of passion, determination, and unity into every facet of the business, building an organization fully dedicated to empowering the talent that makes it run every day. Over the last 12 years, MiQ has evolved its practices in ways to ensure a safe, productive, and inclusive working environment, and consistently offers competitive benefits – including those tied to mental health, health and wellness compensation, parental leave and child-care – to accomplish this. The company has also doubled down on its Inclusion & Diversity and Learning & Development programs to ensure each individual employee feels valued and supported, with the tools they need to advance.
“What truly makes MiQ a special place to work are the ideals that our founders Gurman Hundal and Lee Puri have injected into the DNA of this company from day one. We aim to over-deliver for our employees so they over-deliver for MiQ clients and the business itself,” said Sean Reardon, Global and U.S. CEO for MiQ. “As our guiding North Star, this has consistently and increasingly differentiated our culture from others, which has served our people, our clients, and our business well.”
Reardon continued, “We are insatiable in our desire to provide a vibrant, motivating and fulfilling workplace for all our people. This manifests daily in the form of expansive benefits that support our people as they traverse through different life-stages, our exemplary professional learning and development programs, a compensation structure built around fairness and equity, and a commitment to action and accountability surrounding DE&I initiatives, which culminates in our annual I.D.E.A report.”
The winners of Ad Age’s Best Workplaces 2023 Award reflect the highest overall numerical scores based on an analysis of questionnaires submitted by employers and employee survey responses. Ad Age’s scoring system factors in employee responses on topics including pay, benefits, and company policies as well as practices across work/life balance, recruitment, training, and more.
“The tight labor market forced every business in the industry to compete for talent, and the 2023 Best Places to Work winners proved the value of understanding what employees want today,” said Dan Peres, president and editor-in-chief of Ad Age. “Companies will face challenges this year with the economy and ongoing effects of the pandemic, but winning workplaces understand that taking care of employees is central to business success.”
