Using energy more efficiently

Instituting recycling programs

Managing travel efficiently

Employing green building practices in real estate holdings

In 2020, IPG began expanded measurement of our emissions and other environmental impacts using GHG Protocol Corporate Standards at all of its buildings around the world.

Equal opportunity

Equal opportunity

Flipside, built on talented individuals and a culture of performance and high quality work, aims to capitalise on unique talents whilst drawing on all experiences, skills and knowledge. We aim to attract, recruit, develop and promote individuals by seeking talent from the widest possible pool. We believe this brings creativity, insight, innovation and makes us an organisation that is representative of, and responsive to our customer and client needs. Our culture is one that promotes important values such as respect, integrity, community, innovation, creativity and collaboration and we feel that everyone has the opportunity to realise their potential.
It is our aim to ensure that all employees or job applicants are treated fairly and consistently, and do not receive less favourable treatment on grounds of sex, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, race, colour, nationality, ethnic origin, religion, dependents or age. Nor will they be or placed at any kind of disadvantage by imposed conditions or requirements which cannot be justified. As a company driven by understanding consumer insight we recognise the importance of our workforce being representative of a wide array of cultures and abilities. For us Diversity is about valuing everyone as an individual whether an employee, client, customer or those from the wider community in which we operate. We believe that there is no single way of treating people because everyone is different. We work hard to accommodate differing needs to ensure we harness talents, promote an innovative culture and ensure that the Company continually performs to the best of its ability. We will constantly strive to create a productive environment, representative of and responsive to different cultures and groups, where everyone has an equal chance to succeed.
Wellbeing

Wellbeing

We have a specific Mental Health and Stress Policy with the aim to ensure the physical and mental health of all employees. The main aim is:

• To promote a healthy, safe and friendly working environment and control and
reduce risks to mental health;
• To help provide and maintain a supportive and non-judgmental working
environment;
• To provide effective support to all employees in managing stress and other mental
health problems, and to encourage better recognition of mental health issues; and
• To recognise that the prevention of stress is easier than dealing with it once it has
arisen.
