Ogilvy UK

This is the year we’ve been stronger together. As an agency, we’ve helped our employees, and our clients overcome everything 2020 has thrown at us.

We helped launch The Nightingale hospital, we shot the UK’s first lockdown ad for VOXI, we celebrated the courage of front-line workers with Dove, created Christmas for Boots and Vodafone and helped Britain get ready to fly again, and the world to race again.

We turned our UK Nudgestock event into a global phenomenon, with over 35,000 sign ups, and over 150,000 views.

We’ve had our best ever client survey, scoring 8.1 for performance and 8.2 out of 10 for the likelihood to recommend. 84% of our employees said they feel proud to work at Ogilvy and 88% agreed Ogilvy was an Inclusive place to work.

Our People Team, Inclusion Board, SideBoard, and 5 grassroots Networks all worked tirelessly together to get us safely back into the office, to have honest, authentic and supportive conversations about mental health, wellbeing and belonging, and delivered initiatives for Black Lives Matter, Black Pound Day, UK Pride, UK Black Pride and a comedy spectacular for Inclusion Week.

We also signed up to 10 Diversity & Inclusion Commitments and the Adland D&I commitments to drive actionable and sustainable change.

We re-launched The Pipe and launched the Leadership Academy.

Are we perfect? No. Do we need to do more? Yes. That’s what 2021 is for.
