Mission

We harness creativity, technology, and culture to create connected brands that drive value for clients and touch lives around the world.

Values

PASSIONATELY INVENTIVE

The opposite of love is not hate — it’s indifference. And because we are indifferent to nothing, we put everything we are into everything we do. We bring our best selves to every collaboration, share our positive energy with others and do remarkable work.

ABUNDANTLY GENEROUS

Empathy is key to making us who we are. We encourage diversity, put judgment aside and always assume good intent. We freely offer up our ideas, understanding and time as we partner with each other, our clients and our local communities.

COLLECTIVELY PURPOSEFUL

Our ability to create experiences and communicate perspectives puts us in a position to make a genuine difference. It’s a responsibility we don’t take lightly. We apply our wisdom and best judgment every day to find ways to make us all stronger.

CONSTANTLY STRIVING

Our laurels may be extraordinary, but we are not content to rest on them. We aspire to be the best at what we do and to become better every day. A real love of this business means that we are always pushing each other, our clients and our boundaries — all while having fun along the way.

RELENTLESSLY CURIOUS

When we join forces, there's no obstacle that too much for us. Because we believe the best way to solve a challenge — and of all — is by raising a hand to help, leaping into the unknown and being open to a better way.

Diversity & Inclusion

Every day brings a teachable moment.

The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) team at VMLY&R guides, celebrates, and promotes cultural literacy; increases employee engagement; recruits and retains a diverse workforce; and builds internal opportunities for people to learn and grow.

Social impact

The VMLY&R Foundation exists to support and celebrate the charitable causes that are important to our employees and their families.

As an employee-funded and employee-led 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the VMLY&R Foundation is a tangible expression of our agency’s core values.

By facilitating and amplifying the widest range of charitable efforts — including volunteer service, pro bono work, community leadership roles and financial contributions — we’re able to have a positive impact in our immediate communities and beyond.

The VMLY&R Foundation advisory committee is pleased to share the 2020 VMLY&R Foundation annual report, recapping the Foundation’s most impactful year to date. The report spotlights VMLY&R Foundation financial giving metrics, pro bono efforts, a full list of matching gift and grant recipients, and more.
