AKQA has been certified and recognised by Newsweek as a Top Ten Global Most Loved Workplace. The certification is backed by analysis from the Best Practice Institute.

Newsweek commented: “AKQA’s culture is built on trust, recognition and accountability for living the company values. The culture calls for actions over words, stresses transparency and respect, and encourages collaboration and growth. Employees are empowered to create their own work through the AKQA Framework. There are ample opportunities for employees to collaborate with the aim of making the customer’s life better.”

Ajaz Ahmed, founder and CEO of AKQA, said: “This award is wonderful recognition for AKQA’s 6,500 employees. It is their love for the work and contribution that’s being celebrated. We are tremendously honoured to be in 9th position in this list of 100 fantastic companies we respect and admire. AKQA’s commitment to creating a workplace that reaffirms our guiding ethos is at the forefront of our priorities. This incredible recognition from Newsweek and Most Loved Workplaces inspires and encourages everyone in our team of the shared responsibility to make further strides into the future.”

Amy Oliver, Chief People Officer of AKQA, said: “We are proud to be certified a Most Loved Workplace and named in Newsweek’s first-ever top 100 global workplaces. This is testament to the company culture we are building. We are continuously striving for better ways to listen and respond to our people’s needs and nurture respect and inclusion, and this recognition will fuel our ongoing dedication to employee experience.”

The companies featured on the 2023 Global Most Loved Workplaces list embody this transformative spirit, proving that when companies prioritise their people, success naturally follows.”
