At Ketchum, our mantra is, ‘It’s your career, it’s up to you to take it where you want it to go.’
Figuring out a clear career path to pursue and determining what steps will lead to success can be exciting and, at the same time, overwhelming. But thanks to our commitment to developing a supportive culture as well as tools and resources including career paths, mentoring programs, development checklists and plans , all housed in our state of the art Career Development Quicksite, at Ketchum taking control of your own career is made easy. We want you to join us and be excited about not just the current role you’re applying for, but also to be able to openly and regularly discuss with your manager your professional growth goals and untapped abilities, as well as new skills and capabilities you’re interested to evolve.
Increasingly, international assignments and the opportunity to work in a different country or geography is top of mind for our talent. Ketchum invests annually in a global program, Roads Scholar that allows a selection of individuals to travel to and work in another office and experience the work environment, culture and practices, as well as develop networks and relationships that are mutually beneficial for the individual and our clients.
Recognizing the unique talents of our colleagues is core to our values, and we consistently find ways locally to celebrate success and shine the light on exceptional performance. There are also a number of prestigious global internal awards that employees can earn. These include the David Drobis Client Excellence Award for those that exemplify dedication and passion in client service; the Spirit of Service Award which rewards internal client service teams including HR, Operations, Learning and Development, and others; the Catalyst Award which is given to honor individuals within an office who are committed, high-energy and who engage and energize their teams consistently; and finally our Global Practice Catalyst and Global Media Network Catalyst Awards, honoring individuals within the Global Practices and Global Media Network who are committed, high-energy and who lead their teams strategically and creatively.
