While Klick’s double-digit revenue growth is laudable, judges are equally impressed with its intense focus on creating exceptional work for clients while keeping its 1,100 Klicksters happy.
It strives to “curate an ecosystem” rather than “structure a corporation,” so it can attract talent and nurture and empower them to create and adapt to an ever-changing, demanding marketplace.
With the stated goal of giving people the best work experience of their careers, it runs support teams such as Klick University, in-house Travel and Klick Experience. That’s translated to high employee engagement scores for the past two years, plus 17 Best Workplace Awards.
It also differs from traditional agencies in that it sees itself as a commercialization partner for life science organizations. Last year, it increased its New York footprint and opened a Philadelphia office. And it beefed up expertise in both its media and medical teams, which has grown into the largest in a single full-service agency. With its many M.D.s, Ph.D.s, PharmDs and professionals with advanced life science degrees, the team takes a scientific and data-driven approach to drive transformative solutions and commercial success driven by clinical, scientific, regulatory and category expertise.
It was also a year of attention-getting campaigns, including Demand More for Migraine for Biohaven and the Lifeline campaign for Zoetis, the leading animal health treatment manufacturer.
And its HealthVoyager collaboration with Boston Children’s Hospital, a patented, customizable virtual VR app that takes patients on 3-D tours inside their bodies, was featured in Fast Company and honored at SXSW.
