Havas Media – Why Work With Us?


Global Network. Family Feel.

We take great pride in our Havas family. They bring many unique personalities, perspectives and passions to their work. Collaboration is at the core of how we operate, and Villages are the homes we work in. We encourage our people to take advantage of the many opportunities to grow - whether it be a local agency training, a special project or one of our unique global development programs. We believe we are at our best when we can have a healthy debate, yet still respect and support one another… just like families do. Life at Havas is about creating great work, Together. We are #HavasTogether.

We Empower One Another.

We support and empower each other in endeavors -- both personal and professional. We’re creators and innovators, and passionate about our craft. We know there is more than one way, and appreciate that our perspectives and differences make us better.

We Work in Villages.

Our Havas Village concept brings a broad range of communications disciplines together under one roof: digital, mobile, social media, advertising, direct marketing, media planning and buying, communications, sales promotion, healthcare communications, design, human resources, sports marketing, public relations, finance, research and more. We have a multitude of resources at our fingertips, and our open seating environment helps foster strong communication, teamwork and collaboration.

We Never Stop Exploring.

Learning is an ongoing process, and we aim to build time for it in our day-to-day lives. Our agencies offer a range of unique employee experiences such as on-site skill workshops, guest speakers, mindfulness training and more. Our culture grows through musical performances, social and networking events, community opportunities and other “pop-up” experiences.

Global development programs such as Havas Lofts and HavasNextGen enable employees to build new skill sets and gain exposure to other markets, making for stronger collaboration between our global employees. We continue to introduce new programs that inspire fresh thinking, exploration, and continual growth for our employees in their careers. 

We live by three key words - Data, Insight and Collaboration. They permeate everything we do and enable us to provide integrated planning, buying, content and marketing support services across all communication channels.

Havas Media is part of a group that has reinvented the collaborative agency model.

Around the world, our ‘Havas Village’ headquarters ensure Creative, Media and Consulting can all work together under the same roof and profit from each other’s expertise so that our clients achieve incremental growth through game-changing media and ideas.

Our togetherness gets results. We’re agile, passionate, committed, and we produce innovative, inspiring and award-winning work.

Our clients further benefit from our close collaboration with Havas Group’s specialist agencies including, Artemis Alliance (global data), Mobext (mobile), Socialyse (social media), Affiperf (programmatic), Adcity (local media data), Cake London & New York (content), 18 Havas (insight), LuxHub (luxury consulting) and Havas Productions.

Our Vision

To Better Together.
What is better?
Better is more than a word.
It’s a belief.
A way of getting things done without letting up.
Better crushes status quo.
It elevates ideas.
And changes culture.
Both ‘good’ and ‘great’ have a finish line.
But Better never stops.
It’s a journey.
A journey to the unexpected.
To a world of breakthroughs.
So how do you get to better?
It starts by working Together.
Yes, that's a capital T.
Because it means something.
Together isn't just a fancy mantra.
It's a formidable tool.
Together breaks down any problem.
Make ideas bigger.
Wrestles any complexity.
Digs deeper for insights.
Fuels innovation everyday.
And make every connection meaningful for
brands all over the world.
All of us at Havas agree.
Together makes better.
