ABOUT

About FH:   FleishmanHillard is the most complete communications agency in the world, capable of reaching any audience, with any message, through any channel. But this is about more than what we do. It’s about what drives us to do it. After looking deeply at ourselves, and talking candidly to those who know us, all things intersected at one word: True. It’s our reality, as well as our aspiration. True speaks to our commitment to the highest values. True reflects the trust clients have long placed in us. At the end of the day, if you ask what drives FleishmanHillard, the answer is clear. Our belief in the power of true.   

Our Culture: Yes, we have a strong culture that resonates around the world. But we’re also flexible and unique. Why else would FleishmanHillard have interns who turn three months into a decade? Or so many employees who boomerang after seeing what else is out there? Our expansive client roster, a “real” global network, and opportunities with our sister companies add up to an endless list of possibilities. And these are just a few of the reasons why FleishmanHillard was named to PRWeek’s 2013 “Best Places to Work.”

What we believe: It’s not that we enjoy jumping out of planes. It’s just that big wins don’t happen without taking a few risks. No two companies face exactly the same challenges or opportunities, which is why we believe in carving out the right path for each client. We don’t have a one size fits all formula for success; we don’t reach into the same bag of tricks. In our experience, the landscape changes too fast to rely on the “tried and tested.” That said, we do learn from experience. We’ve blazed trails for startups and Fortune 10 companies around the world, and each adventure has inspired us – inspired new ideas, new thinking, new ways of working, new ways of continually winning!
