IPG Health Agencies Shine in MM+M “Best Places to Work” Program

Humancare, Neon and YuzuYello Take Home Wins in Small and Midsize Agency Categories

NEW YORK, Dec. 05, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IPG Health announced today that three of its agencies have earned coveted spots in MM+M’s annual “Best Places to Work” program which recognizes the world’s best healthcare marketing agencies as scored by their employees and then selected by a panel of judges. Humancare was chosen as an honoree in the Small Healthcare Agency category, while both Neon and YuzuYello were named in the Midsize Agency category. Employees were surveyed anonymously and provided candid feedback across categories like well-being and professional growth, internal communication and transparency, flexibility, agency culture, employee benefits, and more.

“The beauty of IPG Health continues to be our broad diversity of agency brands and personas across the network. And even though we are all unique and different, we have the same core values emanating from a strong culture at the center,” said Dana Maiman, CEO of IPG Health. “At IPG Health, we are obsessed with doing what’s right for our people, enabling a meaningful experience for all within our global network, and are honored to see so many of our agencies recognized as a best place to work.”

Humancare, IPG Health’s seventh full-service AOR that launched in June 2022, lives by the rule of “Be Human.” This mantra has allowed Humancare to establish the kind of culture and identity that ordinarily takes years to develop. From the outset, Humancare has been an agency that puts Human first in everything it does – even its name. That human-centric approach drives the agency‘s work across DTC and HCP, as well as how the agency works internally. Whether it's agency outings, monthly meetings, or day-to-day interactions, there’s a consistent emphasis on recognizing and respecting each other's humanity. Or, what the Humancare team – led by Greg Lao, Managing Director and Lauren Cohen, Managing Director/Creative – calls “Living up to our name.” 

Neon, established in 2009, lights the way with innovative creative solutions to the biggest challenges of life-saving brands. With a boutique agency feel, Neon is a full-service AOR for HCP and DTC/DTP promotion including robust omnichannel and patient support capabilities. The agency produces internationally awarded work for a diverse range of clients both in therapeutic category and size. Led by Mardene Miller, President and Jesse Kates, Managing Director/Creative, Neon maintains a strong agency culture with neighborhood meet-ups and an employee recognition program called the Lumineer Awards, honoring employees who bring leadership, excellence and teamwork to everything they do at the agency.

YuzuYello, launched in May 2020 during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, is dedicated to creating brighter patient experiences and helping brands exceed their patients’ expectations. YuzuYello is a diverse team of specialists consisting of behavioral and learning strategists, service designers, content creators and patient experience specialists who focus largely on patient and caregiver support services, and ambassador programs. Led by Ross Quinn, Managing Director, Client Solutions at IPG Health, YuzuYello frequently hosts a Cocktails & Training series for employees that breaks down different functions, capabilities and philosophies of the agency. Learnings and best practices are shared across departments via lively, interactive in-person and virtual events.

These new awards are the latest in an outstanding year of recognition for IPG Health and its agencies, including “Network of the Year” wins at Cannes LionsAd Age A-List,  Manny AwardsClio Health AwardsMM+M Awards, London International Awards and New York Festivals Health Awards.
