WHY WE THINK WE'RE A GREAT PLACE TO WORK
Walker Sands is an agency at the forefront of the public-relations industry evolution. In the 15 years since our founding, we've cultivated a culture that prioritizes collaboration. While other agencies have struggled to bring public relations and digital services together, we've made that our foundation. We're here to tinker with new ideas, ask big questions, and have fun along the way. Our knowledge-sharing and process improvement doesn't flow from the top down. It's driven by our people through initiatives such as our kaizens, 13 staff-led groups that facilitate everything from wellness workshops to our internal newsletter, as well as volunteer events, happy hours, and our office snack supply; we conduct weekly staff feedback surveys through TINYPulse and offer contests like the $25k Challenge, which asked employees how they'd spend $25,000 to improve our agency. Walker Sands is filled with brilliant, determined marketing scientists, but our culture revolves around more than just work. We've put the tools, programs, and philosophy in place to make our agency a place where employees can live up to our core values: to constantly learn, support each other, and do exceptional work.
