“At IPG, we place a premium on people – ensuring we can attract and nurture the industry’s most diverse and creative talent. By putting people first, we’re able to drive impact for our clients’ businesses and brands, while living into the values that are so important to us at IPG,” said Michael Roth, IPG Chairman and CEO. “I am proud to see IPG as the highest ranked company in our sector, as it shows that our investment in people and in a modern, data-fueled offering is succeeding – and that our focus on values is the right formula,” he continued.
LinkedIn’s methodology for determining the top companies annually includes an analysis of U.S. members’ anonymized actions across four main pillars: interest in the company, engagement with the company’s employees, job demand and employee retention.
