Creative agency Karmarama has again been named a top Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For, ranked 21st in the 2018 league, which was announced yesterday evening at the awards ceremony at Battersea Evolution.
“We are extremely proud to announce our place in the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For – our best position to date,”, said Ben Bilboul, CEO, Karmarama “This makes us the highest ranking communications agency in the UK for the second consecutive year”.
Karmarama also won a special award for Learning and Development for its Dreamcatcher initiative. Dreamcatcher involves staff sending in a dream to the Dreamcatcher team, who select a winner that receives £1000 and a week off to make it happen. Dreamcatcher began as a way to encourage staff at the agency to experience something new and ideally learn something from it. In 2017, the agency had two winners: designer, Ryan Hamilton, who after teaching himself guitar and playing at a series of open mic nights, wanted to travel to Nashville for a week of intensive guitar lessons with his hero. The second winner this year was a trio across the agency; Zahra Mair, Vicki Murfitt and Demi Osman, who wanted to take Good Karma to India on a 1000km race trip in a Karmarama branded tuktuk. They are using the initiative to fundraise for the Karmarama charity of the year, Shelter From The Storm.
Karmarama has featured in The Sunday Times Best Companies lists six times, consecutively over the last four years.
“We believe our culture is what makes Karmarama so special, and are over the moon to have this recognised in the awards for another year,” continues Bilboul.
