Campaign’s Best Place To Work Awards
We’re very proud to be crowned the best medium-sized agency to work for in the UK by Campaign Magazine.
We ranked 1st in the medium-sized category (50 to 199 employees) and 8th on the list overall, the only agency with more than 100 employees to make the top 25.
Over the past year, Journey Further has run a number of initiatives to help progress diversity and inclusion, including using a gender bias platform during its recruitment process to help put together job descriptions, and making all inbound applications blind.
The Best Places to Work awards are decided based on an anonymous survey of all employees.
Robin Skidmore, Global CEO, commented:
“Maintaining culture and the magic as you scale is incredibly hard, you need to have a conscious approach and invest in tools to measure and compare. Well done to everyone who cares about making our business one of the best in the country and well done to everyone who featured on the list.”
An excerpt from the write-up in Campaign Magazine:
“A performance marketing agency with bases in Leeds, London and Manchester, Journey Further launched in 2017 and has a staff retention rate of 98%. The business credits such low churn to its culture, which has also helped drive its growth with happy and motivated teams.
The business has also invested a lot of time and resources ensuring each of its locations is a place staff want to spend time but has always given employees the autonomy to choose where they carry out their work.
Staff are also treated to regular social events, including a weekend away each summer and a monthly curry club.
Over the past 12 months, the business has implemented several initiatives to help progress diversity and inclusion across the business, which is largely driven by a core group within the agency rather than making it a top-down strategy.
Journey Further has also introduced measures to its recruitment process, including using a platform that helps avoid gender bias to help put together job descriptions, and making all inbound applications blind. It will launch its first diversity and inclusion report this year.”
We have been featured in Campaign’s Best Places to Work list for the last three years, previously being recognised for the (Not Just a) Grad Scheme and weekly Learn Together sessions.
