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.
Grow With Us
Ogilvy’s mission is to inspire people and brands to make an impact. 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 always will be our people, Ogilvy strives to be a people-first company. We are laser focused on providing best-in-class learning and development as well as career growth opportunities for all staff. We are deeply invested in and committed to developing our talent and fostering an environment of continuous growth.
Diversity and Inclusion
Ogilvy unequivocally believes that a diverse workforce, where all perspectives are valued and everyone is empowered to be their best authentic self, leads to richer experiences for our people, improved outcomes for our clients, and a better world for all.
Our steadfast commitment to being the most diverse, equitable, and inclusive agency empowers us to execute and evolve practices, policies, and behaviors that enable everyone to thrive, personally and professionally. We aspire to be intentional allies to all individuals impacted by past and present systems of discrimination and marginalization, especially those in our Ogilvy community who we empower to lead the path towards eliminating the unjust barriers they and others in their communities face.
We are committed to fostering a culture where diverse talent can advance their careers while also changing the world for the best.
Talent, I believe,
is most likely
to be found among nonconformists,
rebels, and dissenters.
We have many affinity-based communities that represent a global group of individuals from a plethora of backgrounds, identities, and lived experiences collectively committed to shaping and evolving Ogilvy's culture so that it is more equitable and inclusive for everyone.
These communities are composed of employees at every level of the organization and enable all of their members to actively participate in supporting Ogilvy’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion strategy and provide a safe environment for professional development, networking, and relationship building, especially with senior leader community members who are committed to serving as mentors and advocates for the broader group.
Some of our communities include RedLotus, Black Diaspora, and Pride. We are always open to creating more communities and doing more so that everyone feels seen, heard, appreciated, and valued.
