Mutant started in 2012 as a PR agency, led by one guy with a simple idea – to grow an agency that focused on getting business results and removing agency fluff. Our people and culture are key to our success, and establishing arguably one of the best agency cultures in Singapore is something we are incredibly proud of.
It starts from the core of who we are as Mutants – driven by values such as being genuine, inclusive, responsible and bold. On top of our agency leaders walking the talk, every Mutant – no matter how junior – is respected for their views, and colleagues collaborate across teams effectively. Mutants are effectively able to listen to what our clients truly need – tapping on our larger skillset beyond individual teams to drive results. As a result, Mutant has an industry-defying retention rate of 87% coupled with double-digit revenue growth.
