Inspiring Workplaces 2023: ICS Recognised as Top Workplace Finalist in EMEA

Inspiring Workplaces Awards logo

As an international agency which takes pride in its approach to diversity, learning and workplace culture, we are delighted to be recognised as a finalist in the top 50 inspiring workplaces in the EMEA region for a second year in a row!

I'll be joined by Isabel Heiglmaier (Senior Team Manager), Maybelline Byrne (Senior Team Manager) and Rob Milner (Talent Acquisition Partner) in representing ICS at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on 11th May, on what’s sure to be a night to remember. 

Recognising Innovation in the Workplace: a ‘People-First’ Approach

The Inspiring Workplaces Awards is designed to celebrate organisations who value employee wellbeing, inclusion and diversity, inspiring leadership, communication and employee experience. 

Matt Manners, founder of The Inspiring Workplaces Group said: “The calibre of submissions this year has been truly remarkable. We are eagerly looking forward to honouring and commending the people-first organisations that have distinguished themselves as inspiring workplaces.”

Cultivating an Inspiring Workplace 

While we all enjoy a good awards ceremony, to be recognised as a finalist really is testament to our incredible team and an ongoing commitment to the experience of our employees. 

Working in over 100+ different languages, ICS is an extremely multifaceted team with a culture that’s very much shaped by our staff. Diversity is celebrated, personal development is championed and employee wellbeing is prioritised. 

Our teams specialise in SEO, content creation, digital PR, translation and localisation (and more), and regularly share their expertise through industry analysis (such as our insight into the low-carb, low-sugar food and drinks market) and speaking at global events (check out our Head of SEO Chris Mawson’s debut at the Prague Gaming & TECH Summit). 

Alongside our commitment to professional development, other initiatives we’ve been proud of this year include:

  • An enhanced 30 days per year working from abroad allowance
  • 24/7 mental health support and regular awareness training 
  • Regular social events, such as international food days and games nights 
  • Free breakfasts, fruit and snack pantry 

Creating an inspiring workplace, underpinned by shared values, allows us to further our wider purpose of helping brands to scale internationally through digital marketing services designed to provide meaningful, sustainable results. Having a strong and happy team in place means we all win.

An Award-Winning Agency 

The team will be waiting with bated breath to see if we pick up one of the big awards this week, but regardless of what happens on the night, to be recognised alongside other brilliant companies is a great endorsement of the initiatives we’ve put in place over the past year and is a proud moment for the agency.
