We’re building a different kind of agency. One with an entrepreneurial spirit that leverages data, insights and diversity to drive innovative thinking that helps brands outperform against their competition. We look for people who think differently. People who care less about politics or personal glory, and more about ideas, learning and collective results. Those who thrive on ambiguity, architecting something new, and breaking through old ways to forge new paths. It’s a place you can have a voice regardless of your level. We invite you to join us and “Build Yours.”

Culture of Coaching

A coaching culture provides real results for W2O and for our people. We believe that the talented people we hire are our unfair competitive advantage, and have made significant investments in innovative coaching programs to develop and support them.

Springboard
  • Our Springboard program combines executive coaching with peer leadership cohorts to develop the management and leadership for those at every level across the organization.
  • Springboard is offered to every manager after their second year at W2O.
  • The program builds their confidence as people managers and empowers them to act as coaches for their own teams.
Your 4th Trimester™
  • We also believe in coaching for our people at common moments of transition.
  • Your 4th Trimester™ connects new parents with a personal coach for three months after returning back to work.
Additional Transitions
  • We also support our people with developmental coaching when they take on new roles, move to a new office, or face challenging moments with clients and teams.

“Your 4th Trimester™ was a helpful program because it allowed me the opportunity to speak with a professional and receive advice from somebody who supports these types of transitions all the time.”

Zack Kubow
Group Director

“As a first-time mom, I had a lot of questions – and I was never once made to feel as though I should have known the answers to everything intuitively (which is a pressure new moms often place on themselves). I am grateful to W2O’s Your 4th Trimester™ program for the support I received!”

Kelly Ieno
Associate Director, Marketing

Our Commitment to Diversity & Inclusion

A Healthier Place for All

W2O is passionate about making the world a healthier place for everyone – the clients we serve, the communities we support and the people who drive the work we do every day.

We will deliver on our D&I mission by:

  • Building inclusive and supportive communities
  • Facilitating conversations that provide listening and learning opportunities for our people and clients
  • Collaborating with industry partners and experts to nurture current and next generation talent

Our Commitment in Action

Our culture has always been about our people. Building strong community across our firm helps us collaborate effectively and practice empathy, creating great teams that do great work. Diverse backgrounds, experiences and perspectives not only spark creativity and innovation, but ensure every voice is both welcomed and heard.

Our Diversity & Inclusion Council leads initiatives that focus on recruitment, education, partnerships and other areas. It supports the progress of our existing and any future Employee Resource Groups (ERGs.) Currently, we have three ERGs that create exceptional community-building, learning and professional development experiences for our people, clients and networks: Women of W2O, W2Out and W2O Fusion.

Our Employee Resource Group (ERG) Communities

W2O’s ERG’s provide opportunities for our diverse employees to connect, collaborate and create the most inclusive culture.

Women of W2O

Women of W2O aims to level the playing field in the healthcare industry. By providing professional resources for our employees, fostering professional networks, and identifying opportunities to elevate our women clients as thought leaders, we support employees and clients with the resources they need to advance their careers and succeed.

We leverage data and analytics to better understand women’s experiences in the workplace so we can accurately shape our offerings and ensure we are delivering the most relevant package of resources to women within our agency and across our client base.

W2Out

W2Out fosters a culture of inclusivity and support for LGBTQ+ individuals and allies at W2O. We promote industry-leading best practices for equality and inclusion in the workplace, advocate for and educate about the LGBTQ+ experience, and create meaningful conversations and programs that benefit our clients and our community.

W2O Fusion

W2O Fusion promotes inclusion of all multicultural individuals at W2O, advancing points of view and serving as a forum for mentorship that supports our company’s commitment to being an inclusive employer and making the world a healthier place for all. Our vision is that all W2O employees and the communities we serve are seen, heard and inspired. We aim to foster a greater understanding of the various communities represented at W2O by establishing multicultural best practices across our business and creating sustained programs for engagement, advocacy and business development.

Benefits

W2O is happy to give employees a lot of sweet perks – and we expect a lot, in return. We know that when employees are happy to come to work every single day, we’re a lot more productive. As our CEO Jim Weiss says, “If you’re not enjoying it, why are you doing it?”

We offer far beyond the norm, with extra-special benefits W2Oers really love.

U.S. Benefits
Flexible Vacation + The Week Between Xmas and New Years

We realize that in this always-on world, people want more time off and greater flexibility so we allow our team members flexible PTO. We are also closed during the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day to give ourselves a break. If we are fresh, so are our ideas.

Employee Sabbatical

We award a 5-week paid sabbatical after five years of employment to have a once-in-a-lifetime experience of your choice.

Parental Leave — Your 4th Trimester™

W2O recognizes the value of bonding time and offers paid time off for new parents to an extent that’s rare in our industry – up to 16 weeks of paid leave depending on tenure. The Your 4th Trimester™ program provides a personal coach who engages with the parent and their manager for three months after their return to ensure the smoothest possible transition back to the workplace.

Preemie Policy

W2O recognizes that parents whose baby is born prematurely and must stay in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) for an extended period before going home often have to return to work because they have used up their Parental Leave. For these parents, W2O offers a week of paid time off for every week a pre-term (before 36 weeks) baby is early – for up to eight weeks.

This Preemie Policy, coupled with W2O’s Your 4th Trimester™ program, enables us to uniquely support our parents in and out of the office.

Access To The CEO, Flexible Work Environment And Other Perks

Very few companies our size feel this entrepreneurial. There’s little hierarchy and incredible access to the CEO and exec team. It’s a place you have a voice in shaping the company. And on top of that our Culture Clubs make sure we create an environment where you feel connected and well taken care of.
