Top Places to Work in PR 2014: Cohn & Wolfe

Cohn & Wolfe

At Cohn & Wolfe, employees are known to have a blast during team activities—from dune buggy races to ’80s dance parties and ziplining to horseback riding, but what they’re really known for is their creativity. The company encourages creativity from the moment new employees step into the office on their first day. In fact, they ask that they sign a Creative Pledge that encourages them to embody a childlike curiosity, challenge the rules of convention and explore the uncharted paths. This philosophy is brought to life throughout the agency with their mantra “Dig Deeper. Imagine More.”

Cohn & Wolfe’s biggest agency-wide initiative is "Dig Deeper. Imagine More. Day," a concentrated employee think-tank supporting a global cause, while celebrating and reinvigorating Cohn & Wolfe’s research-driven creative firepower. The first DDIM Day brought together over 500 employees in 18 offices to create an award-winning global campaign—plus a dozen local programs—driving awareness and funding for Project Kaisei’s ocean cleanup initiatives. The second DDIM Day challenged employees to develop innovative ways to activate the imaginations of underprivileged and at-risk children around the globe. Each office partnered with a local non-profit for the project, with campaigns rolling out throughout 2013.

At Cohn & Wolfe they are just as committed to helping out their employees as they are to the community. For their employees’ four-legged family members, they offer pet insurance and, to ensure that the whole family is well protected, they also offer auto, homeowner and renters insurance. There are also extensive discounts program, ranging from savings on new computer hardware and discounted tickets to sport and cultural events.
