Regarding talent, the agency houses 200 people. It claimed less than 1 per cent turnover rate among senior management (11 per cent overall). According to an internal anonymous survey, the agency didn’t have a single disgruntled employee.
The agency also looked to access tools that it believed was relevant and make them accessible to clients as per their needs. These included Eyeris, an OOH measurement tool that considered the visual effectiveness of each site by taking into consideration the traffic speed over various periods of time and the population density factor, to arrive at a standard of measurement, called ‘clout’ for each billboard.
