At Walker Sands, our employees enjoy coming into the office each day. How do we know that? Because they tell us. Here are a few things we all love about Walker Sands.
We might be biased, but we believe our company culture and office environment are second to none. We host after-work happy hours featuring intense games of Catch Phrase and nail-biting trivia competitions, and we’re a formidable force on the recreational kickball circuit. If flag football is more your game, we do that, too. And who could forget our annual Chicago Cubs outing? At Walker Sands, we make it a priority to promote a healthy work-life balance year-round.
To do right by our clients, we first need to do right by our employees. We’ve established a clear-cut career path that provides our strategy, PR and digital marketing professionals with opportunities to advance, and we place an emphasis on promoting from within. We make sure our teams have the tools they need to succeed — whether that’s a new software program for managing social media or the education that comes with attending a week-long conference. Walker Sands places a premium on knowledge, and professional development is ingrained into our company culture.
Walker Sands offers an employer-matched 401k program and quality health, dental and vision insurance coverage. We also offer reimbursement of public transportation expenses and gym membership reimbursement as a part of our “Get Fit” program. Our flexible office environment includes the opportunity to work from home, and we all enjoy half days on Fridays in the summer.
Walker Sands One Step Forward, our philanthropic arm, takes on a select number of projects for local charitable causes, giving members from different teams in the office the chance to come together and collaborate on new projects. We also take the time to meet outside of the office to give back. Whether we're making dinner for the Ronald McDonald House, attending a rooftop Cubs game to benefit the Little Giraffe Foundation or building houses for Habitat for Humanity, we enjoy taking responsibility in our community and having fun in the process.
