Culture

TBWA’s culture relies on a set of values. They are described in three words that are in themselves not necessarily distinctive: creativity, curiosity, and diversity. Of our three values, creativity comes first. Every single day we are looking for ideas that are fresh, smart, and simple. Fresh because so few ideas manage to emerge from the immense noise of global communication. Most have become inaudible, invisible. Ideas do not come out of nowhere. They come from an understanding of the cultures we live in and the audiences we are talking to. This is why curiosity is our second value. We want and expect our people to have hungry minds. And we do a lot to help feed them. For instance, every day of the week, we produce a different three-minute video describing particular micro-trends and what’s becoming important in emerging crowd cultures from our Backslash platform. This provides great food for thought.

Our third value is diversity. “Embrace diversity, it will hug you back,” believes John Hunt, our Worldwide Creative Chairman. While gender diversity is important to us, at TBWA diversity goes far beyond the executive positions occupied by women. In our organisation, six of our largest offices—Los Angeles, New York, Toronto, Shanghai, London, and Paris - are managed by women. While having a diverse staff at all levels of an organisation is important, we also take diversity to mean openness to others. We see the value in cultural blending. Each of our local offices is endowed with its own strong local character, and this enriches our work. Our Amsterdam office is no exception with sixteen different nationalities and multiple ethnicities.
