November 18, 2016 – After winning Strategy’s 2016 Agency of the Year, Cossette was named one of the 2017 Aon Best Employers in Canada. These are two significant acknowledgments for the agency, which highlight, on the one hand, the exceptional talents and products and, on the other, the positive environment and business practices. Moreover, Advertising Age recognized Cossette’s Chicago office as one of 2016’s 50 Best Places to Work in Advertising and Media in the U.S.
Not only is Cossette the sole advertising agency on Aon Hewitt’s annual list, it is also ranked at the Platinum level—these are the companies in the top 25% of all those Aon surveys as part of its Best Employers program. This is based on employee engagement, leadership, performance, culture and employer brand.
“It’s clear that a marketing communications agency wants to be recognized for innovative capacity, creative products and memorable campaigns. If, in addition, corporate practices are embraced and endorsed by employees, we really have the best of both worlds,” says Mélanie Dunn, President and CEO of Cossette Canada.
There are some factors that make the agency stand out. These include brand, leadership practices, sense of influence, and also training and professional development. “The sense of belonging to the Cossette brand has intensified since the launch of our new brand identity last year,” added Dunn. “Our talented employees are proud of what Cossette produces, but also of the environment in which they evolve.”
In addition to topping the Aon Hewitt list, Cossette Chicago was one of the 50 Best Places to Work in Advertising and Media in the U.S., according to Advertising Age. This recognition is based on a set of criteria that includes workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics, and overall employee experience.
