Amar Deep Singh, CEO, Interactive Avenues, said, “In the advertising business, an agency is as good as its talent. People are the most valued asset in our line of work. And hence it’s imperative to develop a strong people culture which nurtures individuals both professionally and personally. Interactive Avenues as an agency is highly focused on its talent not just from the retention point of view but to help them grow as individuals and align them with the business goals.”
It also acknowledges organisations that have stringent policies towards sexual harassment, a humane approach towards special ability people, gender equality, care for society, people focus like healthcare, fun at workplace, facilities like food and recreation.
“Winning the Great Indian Workplaces Award 2018 for the second consecutive year is extremely gratifying as it reinstates our confidence in delivering a wonderful workplace and culture to our people. At IA, we have built a culture, where you walk into any of our offices only to meet 400+ energetic, enthusiastic and driven young individuals, mining data, creating content, nurturing their brands, playing the guitar, chasing their dreams and making them come true. Today, Interactive Avenues is considered to be the best place to learn in the industry and our employees are really sought after. And I am extremely proud that even the coveted industry platforms are endorsing that,” added Singh.
