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

Solutions-Focused, Transformational Coaching for All

At W2O, we believe in the power of coaching to transform careers. We know coaching works and we’ve proven there’s a clear connection to increased retention, greater employee engagement and enhanced individual performance. In fact, it’s why we’ve created an inclusive and universal culture of coaching within W2O that supports development for all.

  • We offer an array of data-driven, structured coaching approaches tailored to the individual and/or team’s need(s).
  • Clear metrics and ROI guide our approach: We believe in the power of data to ensure our programs meet (and even exceed) our peoples’ needs.

Springboard

  • Our Springboard program combines executive coaching with peer learning opportunities for people managers across the organization.
  • Participants develop improved management and leadership skills empowering them to act as coaches for their own teams.

Your 4th Trimester™

“Having a coach who is so closely tied to what we do at W2O is incredibly helpful.”

“Chatting with a coach who knows the ins and outs of W2O was very helpful to creating a realistic game plan and personal next steps. Love that W2O is building this practice!”

“I have never had an opportunity before to do something like this. It makes me feel like a valued part of the organization that this is offered.”

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 Business Resource Groups (BRGs). Currently, we have five BRGs that create exceptional community-building, learning and professional development experiences for our people, clients and networks: Women of W2O, W2Out, W2O Fusion, W2O Families and Evolve.

Our Business Resource Group (BRG) Communities

W2O’s BRGs 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.

W2O Families

W2O Families strives to empower working parents of W2O to be successful in all their roles at work and at home – while nurturing a family-friendly culture. We aim to create a forum for working parents where they can discuss opportunities & challenges and learn from one another. W2O Families also offers support, resources and opportunities for families of W2O to help them integrate key facets of their lives – career, self, family, community – in a healthy and sustainable way.

Evolve

Evolve exists to create a community of peers who are sharing similar professional milestones: first or early stage jobs, new to our industry or their profession, navigating early career opportunities and challenges. The mission of Evolve is to provide support as peers across W2O and its affiliated companies share, collaborate and integrate learnings, while fostering professional development. Our mandate is to support our members through mentorship, opportunity, education and a broad range of professional development themes, with sponsorship and advocacy by senior leaders throughout W2O.

Syracuse University Partnership

Syracuse University partnership.

To honor W2O’s roots in Syracuse University and ensure tomorrow’s PR and communications talent is just as impressive as today’s, we put skin in the game.

Our Partnership

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.

Health & Wellness — What You Expect, Plus
Reimbursement For Massage Therapy or Gym Membership

W2O has built a business on being the healthcare partner to some of the world’s
most notable brands, so we go out of our way to create a healthy environment for
you. In addition to a robust benefits plan (medical, dental, life insurance,

world-class company), we have a Wellness Programs that includes Benefit Fairs,

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.
