Corporate Citizenship

The last year has seen a truly global movement for positive social change.

From the Paris climate conference (COP21) to the introduction of the UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development, to our Scottish office’s work with young people, Weber Shandwick is proud to work in partnership with our corporate, foundation, nonprofit and pro bono clients to face the world’s biggest challenges.

Today, we are excited to share our efforts in our 2015 Corporate Citizenship Report. In this report, we showcase our firm belief in instilling the ethos of responsible citizenship in all of our global offices and across all practices of our business.

In our Scottish office, Weber Shandwick received its first Investors in Young People accreditation, in recognition of our company’s commitment to train and develop young people. You can read more here.

We also become the first PR company to adopt Facebook at Work, helping to foster greater connectivity and interaction with our workforce throughout the world.

In partnership with our clients, we’re delivering work with huge impact, with all 150 assignments mapped to 17 of the UN Global Goals. In 2015 we dedicated more than 15,000 hours to pro bono initiatives, broadened our 140-person Diversity and Inclusion council and increased our efforts in encouraging individual employee volunteerism in local communities.

Weber Shandwick is proud to work across sectors to remove barriers and create opportunity, enrich individual experiences for our people, and help do our part as global corporate citizens.
