Each year, we make substantial investments in education and training, which include basic skills training all the way through our advanced Omnicom University for current and future leaders. We also continue to ramp up digital training, so that all our employees have a deep understanding of how to leverage new technologies and channels for clients and their brands.
In March 2011, Omnicom launched EMERGE - an immersive two-day Technology and Innovation Summit for our agencies that highlights the most recent and relevant innovations around a “disruptive” technology topic. Bringing together over 300 (+) of the top leaders in innovation, strategy and client development across the Omnicom global network, EMERGE capitalizes on the thinking and emerging technologies from our partnerships with top tech companies as well as hack-a-thons and discussions on progressive strategies from Omnicom Group companies.
Emerging Stars brings together top junior talent, from across all of the Omnicom networks, and exposes them to multiple marketing disciplines and gives them the experience of working on an integrated team. Each team is given a “live” integrated marketing brief from one of Omnicom’s largest clients. It culminates in a competitive ‘pitch’ in front of selected Omnicom Agency CEOs and a senior representative from the Client involved in the brief.
The company offers the industry’s richest opportunities for individual growth, with offerings that include Omnicom University, Catalyst at DDB, BBDO University, Tiger Academy at TBWA, Ketchum University, OMD Foundations, and more – all contributing to enhancing employees’ professional breadth and our success in retaining top talent.
