Cast your vote in Digiday’s Top Boss Award, honoring the best agency managers
If there is indeed a talent crunch in the advertising industry, no one feels that more acutely than the people running the agencies. Fortunately for them, there are a few easy fixes.
According to a March 2016 study on agency turnover conducted by the 4A’s and LinkedIn, one of the most common reasons employees leave is because they don’t find their work challenging. Agency management would do well to take an active role in employee development.
Luckily, there are a few who already do.
To honor the agency bosses making a difference in their employees’ lives, Digiday has nominated five managers for the Top Boss Award, Digiday’s first award to honor individuals themselves — as opposed to their work. As part of the nomination process, every agency was asked to create a short video about why their boss deserves the award. Watch the submissions below and vote for the boss you believe deserves to win by September 23, 2016.
The boss with the highest number of votes will be declared a Top Boss properly lauded by Digiday.

Mike Margolin, svp, director of audience strategy, RPA
