NEW YORK, NY–(Marketwired – November 16, 2015) – Innovid, the world’s leading video platform for advertisers to create, deliver and measure video experiences on any device, today was named one of the 50 Best Places to Work in Advertising & Media by Advertising Age. Innovid was among 50 companies selected based on criteria such as hiring practices, benefits packages, salaries, office perks, workplace environment and design. Nearly 20,000 people were surveyed as part of the selection process.
Founded in 2007, Innovid serves billions of pre-roll and advanced creative video impressions annually for many Fortune 1000 brands, including many Top 200 TV advertisers. The company’s explosive client-base growth has led them to more than doubling the employee count from 2014 to 2015 across their global footprint in New York, Chicago, LA, London, Tel Aviv and Sydney, while still maintaining an engaged, family-centric and innovative workplace.
“As always, the competition was tough. Out of the hundreds of companies who applied, we’re calling out more honorees than ever before. Fifty big shops, independents, agencies, ad tech, and media companies earned recognition for being leaders in recruiting, retaining, and cultivating talent,” said Ken Wheaton, editor of Advertising Age. “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.”
“Our massive growth and company achievements can only be attributed to one thing: our employees,” said Zvika Netter, CEO and Co-Founder of Innovid. “While we offer perks, great benefits and a family-centric environment, it’s the people who show up every day to innovate, collaborate and inspire each other that make Innovid special and successful.”
Submissions were evaluated by Advertising Age research partner Buck Consultants LLC. With nearly a century of experience in employee and human resource consulting, Buck crafted two surveys to help Advertising Age find the companies with the best benefits and most-engaged employees. The employer survey contained about 100 questions, including questions about pay, promotions, health care and other benefits and hiring practices. The employee survey contained about 50 questions. It measured aspects of the workplace environment that contribute to an engaged staff, including matters such as fairness of pay, vacation time, relationships with management and co-workers, career development and other workplace issues. Any agency, ad tech or media company with more than 40 full-time employees in the U.S. was eligible.
This Advertising Age award comes on the heels of Innovid being awarded one Crain’s New York Business Best Places to Work for 2015, as well as being named a three-time IAB Rising Star for Digital Video.
