There’s usually a gap between how fantastic a company thinks they are — touting things like a playful culture or unlimited PTO — and how fantastic their employees know it to be. That gap is wide for some, really wide for others, but for companies with self-awareness and a strong north star of employee respect, perception and reality occupy the same space. We are proud to be in the latter category, having just earned ourselves a formal certification by Great Places to Work™. On a scale of 1 to 100, 96% of employees say that Heady is a great place to work. Ninety-six percent! We are humbled, proud, and take this honor seriously.
When it comes to technology, the only constant is change. But some changes cause more noise than others, and over one year ago, that was especially true with the release of iOS 14.5 with App Tracking Transparency measures (also known as ATT). The update certainly resulted in a fair share of grumbles, particularly among digital advertisers. At Heady, we believe in not just acknowledging but embracing changes in tech and staying ahead of the curve. We also advocate for enhanced digital privacy, so we looked at the release as a good thing. Not just for consumers and privacy advocates, but for the industry as a whole. It’s over one year later, so we’re asking: Were we right to look on the bright side?
