The Fab 50 in ranked order for the first time

The Fab 50 list of the event industry's best companies to work for has already been published, both online and in print, but Event has been number-crunching over the past few weeks and can now bring you the full breakdown of results.

The results will appear in a series of news stories here on this section of the Event website.

In the magazine you will have seen a list of the Fab 50 in alphabetical order. These were the 50 agencies with the highest average score across the categories, ranging from job satisfaction to pay levels, in our survey.

Here are all 50 of those agencies for the first time in the order they would have appeared if the Fab 50 was an ordered ranking.

Some important things to remember:

1) If you are bottom of this list, or any of the ones we publish over the next few weeks, it does not mean you are a bad company to work for. On the contrary, it means you qualified for the Fab 50; there were many times more agencies and firms that did not.

2) The reason this list was not published initially is because there is a variance in the number of people that filled in our survey from each company (with a minimum of four) and this could lead to some aberrant results. The numbers above how now been studied in even greater depth to remove obvious PR campaigns and any doubtful results, to hopefully give you a ‘clean’ picture.

3) The results are the opinions of the people who work for the top 50 companies, not the opinions of Event.
