Akoo International Inc., media and technology innovator located near Chicago, has been named one of Advertising Age’s 2012 ‘Best Places to Work in Marketing and Media’.
Recipients of the award are independently selected and recognized for creating leading-edge work environments, competitive compensation and benefits packages, and a highly engaged employee base.
“This recognition by Advertising Age is extremely meaningful because it indicates the degree to which Akoo employees feel engaged in their work and committed to serving our agency and brand partners,” says Niko Drakoulis, Akoo International CEO.
Kevin Crow, Akoo chief people officer, says, “We’re on a mission to attract and retain only the best talent – ‘A’ players – on our team, so creating a dynamic environment where our employees can thrive remains a primary objective.”
To compile its winners, Advertising Age enlisted Buck Consultants to evaluate leading marketing and media companies on issues related to compensation, benefits, healthcare, employee engagement, career development, and a multitude of workplace issues.
