Ogilvy & Mather today announced for the third consecutive year that the agency has been named to LinkedIn’s “The World’s 100 Most InDemand Employers” list. As the 25th most sought after employer, O&M is the first and only advertising agency ever ranked in the top 25.
LinkedIn, considered the world’s largest professional network, announced the rankings at their 2014 Talent Connect conference Tuesday, October, 21 in San Francisco. Ogilvy & Mather’s ranking as the 25th most InDemand employer globally, follows recognition earlier this year by LinkedIn as the 35th most InDemand employer in North America.
“Attracting top talent is the lifeblood of our business and one of the most important factors in driving growth and keeping Ogilvy’s culture strong,” said Lauren Crampsie, Worldwide Chief Marketing Officer, Ogilvy & Mather. “It is a huge accomplishment to be in the company of some of the world’s most respected and thriving companies and we are proud to be named an “InDemand” employer by LinkedIn.”
The agency’s previous recognitions by LinkedIn include ranking 26th globally in 2013, as well as 9th on “New York City’s 20 Most InDemand Employers” list that same year. In 2012, the agency was ranked 18th globally.
“I am thrilled that our collective efforts to expand our employment brand around the world are being recognized by this important workplace leader,” said Jean-Rene Zetrenne, Chief Talent Officer, Ogilvy & Mather North America. “The Talent Management team continues its commitment to improve our score and deliver on our mission of finding, growing and keeping the world’s best talent.”
The InDemand rankings measure talent and brand strength. LinkedIn calculated their third annual ranking, based on the analysis over 35 billion interactions between companies and members on LinkedIn. The data looks at LinkedIn member awareness of a company and engagement via LinkedIn. The analysis weighted member actions such as viewing employee profiles, visiting Company pages and following companies. The companies on the list represent 17 countries, 59 cities, and 33 industries.
