We are so excited to announce that In Marketing We Trust has been shortlisted for the 2022 Australian Financial Review’s BOSS Best Places to Work Award. The award is based on a rigorous, science-based process, created by leading behavioural consultancy, Inventium.
In Marketing We Trust’s People Operations Manager, Maria Ursente said,
“We are thrilled to be shortlisted for this prestigious award and to be recognised for our work culture. At In Marketing We Trust we take our values and culture seriously. We hire location independent professionals only because many traits of the company match this career lifestyle. This has meant that during 2020 and 2021, during times of rapid change for companies across the world, In Marketing We Trust was able to provide a steady environment and culture for our team.”
In Marketing We Trust has been a fully remote agency since 2013 so were well-equipped to handle the global shift to remote work.
“As a service provider, our most important assets are expertise and experience, meaning our people. Based in over 15 countries our employees are recruited based on their abilities – not drive time to the office. That’s why we have a more skilled digital marketing team because by not factoring in location, we’re able to choose the best people for the job.”
– Frederic Chanut, Managing Director, In Marketing We Trust.
Good relationships are a huge factor in the success of our business. While we may be remote, this doesn’t stop our team from getting together in person. To help the team get to know each other really well, we organise an immense annual conference once a year called Trusted Conf. where the team learns together, works together and plays together. Nothing bonds a team better than being stuffed in a resort together for a week!
This year looks a little different, however. Thanks to COVID, we are not able to organise an in-person event but we are still getting together, this time virtually, and no it’s not via Zoom. This year, we’re holding a Trusted Conf. VR world tour. The team members have all been given an Oculus Quest 2 to participate and play.
Paul Hewett, Commercial Director at In Marketing We Trust, said,
“Ultimately, the most rewarding part of my role is the impact of what we are building for our team members and customers. My reason for getting out of bed every day is to build a marketing business that delivers exceptional value for customers while providing meaningful employment which improves peoples quality of life. I think I’m in the perfect company to fulfil this purpose.”
The Australian Financial Review’s assessment for the award is underpinned by the Workplaces of the Future framework, developed by Inventium. It is designed to assess the ten key factors that are critical to employees feeling motivated and engaged at work. The framework is based on hundreds of research papers from Harvard University, Stanford University and Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania among others, that demonstrate the key factors necessary to create a brilliant workplace.
“As a fully remote company with more than 8 years of experience, we can confidently say that we are still going through learning and adaptations in order to make sure that our team members are not only accustomed to but also thriving within the company and its remote setup.”
