David Ogilvy

Who We Are

Ogilvy was founded in 1948 as one office. Today, we operate as a creative network in 132 locations across 83 countries. In the course of this growth, the world has become effectively unrecognizable from what it once was.

Ogilvy has been there every step of the way, shepherding the world’s most successful brands through the uncertainty and helping them adapt and stay relevant for the long-term.

We have never lost sight of our purpose in the world: we exist to make brands matter.

We have succeeded because, despite the massive shifts that have occurred over the years, we have always operated in the way David Ogilvy envisioned. He created a corporate culture that deeply respected and cared about its people and its clients. We honor his legacy by operating with that same commitment.

Our core values remain at the heart of everything we do. They are not a set of rules, but beliefs. They are our DNA.

They inform how we go about our daily lives that help set expectations of the kind of work we create, and the kind of people we hire.

We know that as long as we live our values, we will do great work. Our people will learn and grow, explore their interests and become the best versions of their personal and professional selves.

Our values have gotten us far, and they will take us ever further into the future. We live this as one force, indivisible.

We are: Pervasively Creative, Adaptively Connected, Relentlessly Curious, Divinely Discontented, Eternal Craftspeople.

We are Ogilvy.

Grow With Us

Ogilvy’s mission is to make brands matter. We believe the best way to do that is by fostering a community of inclusion made up of people from diverse backgrounds, where all contributions are valued, and where every employee has the chance to become their best creative and professional self.

Because our greatest asset is, has always been, and will always be our people.

Our founder, David Ogilvy, proudly described our creative network as the “teaching hospital”. He envisioned Ogilvy as a place where professionals not only do great work, but come in each day with the possibility to learn and the ability to practice and hone their craft.

Learning & Development plays an important role in creating this atmosphere.

Today, Ogilvy's global Learning & Development team continues to build on David's legacy by equipping our employees with all the tools they need to grow their careers and become even stronger, more well-rounded professionals.

In a world that not only requires new ideas but also new capabilities to bring those ideas to life, our training programs develop our people’s abilities to tackle the greatest challenges faced by our clients. We utilize our global resources to deliver blended learning that embodies our founder culture.

We offer a wide range of programs focused on deepening our employees' knowledge and enhancing their expertise, with courses and trainings focused on areas such as Digital Transformation, Leadership, Culture, Change Management, Growth, and New Ways of Working, among many others.

Unlock New Doors

Nothing is more important than our people. We take our responsibility to them seriously, and a critical part of that responsibility is that we bring our values to life, every day to every employee.

Oglivy is divinely discontent, committed to eternal craft, and relentlessly curious—to that end, we must give our people every possible opportunity to grow.

That includes taking on a new challenge in a new place.  

Global Mobility is part of our promise to put our people first. We understand that many people join Ogilvy for career growth and opportunity.

Along the way, some employees may want to move into new crafts, enhance their current skills or explore new markets.

We believe our employees deserve the chance to challenge themselves wherever those challenges may take them.

Thus, we are proud to offer our Global Mobility program. 

The Global Mobility program gives every Ogilvy employee visibility and access to open Ogilvy job postings and roles across our entire global network. Every year, we move more than 100 employees into new positions in offices around the world.

We believe in one connected network that allows every person to explore their strengths and navigate their professional careers. Our Global Mobility program ensures that we offer our employees every possible avenue to grow as professionals and people.

Community. Representation. Shared values.

Our Professional Networks represent a global community of individuals from all backgrounds committed to working together to shape Ogilvy's culture for the present and the future. They have been in operation in some form for over a decade, and their size, scope, and influence have only grown over time.

The Professional Networks are affinity-based groups enabling employees to actively participate and contribute in supporting our Diversity & Inclusion strategy. The networks provide an environment for professional development and networking along with a formal link to employees, allies and senior management.

As we believe in empowering our people, Ogilvy's Professional Networks are formed by employees.

They are centered around those with common interests—but regardless of who you are or where you come from, you will always belong at Ogilvy. To that end, our networks are open to all employees.

Each network is dedicated to developing programs to promote recruitment, retention, career development; cultivating informal mentorship through networking opportunities; fostering education and outreach opportunities; making a difference in the communities in which we operate; and providing advice and counsel to our business by acting as in-house focus groups and sounding boards.

Networks supporting LGBTQ+, cultural and ethnic diversity, administrative professionals, neurodiversity, and working parents are among the many active employee-driven groups.
