We stand for diversity of experience. OMD EMEA’s business is staging experiences for consumers who have more choice and less attention than ever before. The key to the process is empathy. Empathy to see the world through the eyes of the consumer, to recognise the needs of our clients and to identify aspirations of our talent. We believe that OMD EMEA can be the place where our people and our clients come to do the best work of their careers. This won’t be delivered by tools or technology alone, or by better processes and systems, but by us, the diverse talent at OMD EMEA. We are the difference, and at OMD EMEA, we celebrate difference and promote balance.
"I am proud of the journey OMD has taken over the past year, culminating in our rise from 18th on COMVergence’s Global New Business Values list in 2017 to currently ranking 1st for 2019. Our 6,500 OMDers from across EMEA all played a part in this incredible achievement, and I am honoured to lead them every day. "
Chief Executive Officer
"Diversity and Inclusion isn't just a tick box at OMD EMEA - we believe it's essential to ensure it's at the heart of our talent approach. I'm so proud to spearhead our D&I Plans and steering group activities. Most recently we've worked towards and brought to life, OMD EMEA being the first media agency to sign a pledge to the Valuable 500 and gaining the Disability Confident accreditation this year."
Chief People Officer
"I champion 'RED', OMD EMEA's Recruitment, Engagement and Development initiative and am responsible for driving our D&I activities for these core areas through our RED steering group, a team that delivers actions against these areas. We've made real progress by improving our attraction and hiring processes, built greater understanding of each other and introduced new training. Our RED approach has helped us ensure our activities are structured, meaningful and delivering against these areas."
