W+K named in Sunday Times’ Best Companies 2019

W+K London has been named one of the 100 Best Small Companies to work for by The Sunday Times, winning a three-star accreditation – the “highest standard of workplace engagement, representing organisations that truly excel”.

The anonymous employee survey, which measures eight standards of workplace engagement, showed 92% of staff agreed their manager cares about them as an individual; 94%  said the experience they gained at W+K is valuable for their future; and a massive 98% of respondents agreed they felt proud to work for this organisation.

Massive thanks to every one of our lovely team who took part in the survey and makes this place what it is.

W+K named Fast Company’s Most Innovative Company in advertising

We’re honoured to be named Fast Company’s Most Innovative Company in advertising, for the second year in a row.

The publication writes: “Wieden+Kennedy is advertising’s largest independent advertising agency – and its most innovative, able to serve both iconic companies such as Nike and KFC and a new generation of brand marketers such as Airbnb and OK Cupid. Without question, its work for the 30th anniversary of Nike’s Just Do It campaign, titled “Dream Crazy,” was the advertising feat of 2018…the campaign perfectly captures how Wieden+Kennedy creates work that impacts the culture.

“Wieden’s diverse, inclusive hiring and leadership, including co-president Colleen DeCourcy, have helped the agency connect with the cultural conversation in ways that others in the advertising industry cannot because they lack the voices in the room to make sure that they’re aware of both what will – and what won’t – resonate.”
