Diversity & Inclusion
We are committed to fostering an equal, diverse and inclusive culture and strive to be truly representative of all sections of society. We aim to ensure each employee feels respected in a working environment that is free of bullying, harassment, victimisation and discrimination. Central to achieving our diversity goals is our Diversity & Inclusion team who are passionately committed to ensuring D&I is at the forefront of our agency decision making and that we remain accountable to the 10 commitments set out in the Adland Commits charter we signed.
Ways of Working
At Total Media, we believe in building a work environment based on trust and integrity. A big part of making this happen is our agile working culture. This approach enables us to get work done with maximum flexibility and minimum constraints, giving us control to work how we want so we can create a work-life balance that suits our own personal schedule and commitments. It means we truly become focused on what we do and our delivery, rather than on the hours we work.
Learning & Development
We continuously invest in our people, facilitating over 140 training sessions, workshops, and courses per year which cover a huge variety of learning topics tailored to all levels and roles within our agency. We work with the best external training partners in the industry, as well as utilising our own exceptional talent with internally-run sessions, to ensure our people are always learning & developing.
Testament to our investment, our training has been awarded CPD Platinum from the IPA every year since its inception and Gold Standard for the Government-backed Investors in People Accreditation.
Health & Happiness
While we take immense pride in our top-notch professional development training, we want our staff to feel supported too. Our growing team of trained Mental Health First Aiders, alongside our wellbeing team, are on hand to ensure our staff always feel energised, balanced and above all – happy.
We also ensure we have fun on the way, so we set up a social committee to do exactly that. From our Thirsty Thursday themed cocktail nights, to bake offs, FIFA tournaments, and not forgetting our infamous fancy dress parties and agency walking weekends, our “Fun Factory’s” only remit is to ensure maximum enjoyment for everyone.
B Corp & Going Green
At the heart of everything that we do are our efforts to be a more inclusive and sustainable business. One of our team rightly said “You’ll spend a quarter of your week at work – why not try and create the kind of company you want to work for?”, which is why we are extremely proud to be recognised as a B Corporation. A status that displays our commitment to balance social and environmental performance alongside profit to ensure our business benefits all people, communities and our planet.
We have internal ESG teams across the agency covering subjects such as the environment, carbon neutrality, diversity and inclusion, wellness, outreach and culture. The teams tackle our big picture goals including committing to operate and run a carbon neutral agency group by 2025, 5 years earlier than the IPA’s industry target deadline set for 2030.
