INITIATIVES FOR TODAY AND TOMORROWBeing part of the vibrant fabric of London and having employees from all corners of the world has been a driving force in how we have shaped Ogilvy in the UK. The broad range of initiatives we are currently spearheading have been chosen to best support our incredible pool of talent, for both the present and the future
In 2018, Ogilvy will be rolling out a WPP
initiative across the agency: Walk the Talk. This is an intensive coaching programme
for females, designed to empower women
to identify the barriers they may face in the
industry as a whole.
Walk the Talk was piloted in 2016 by Maxus
globally, inspiring and empowering 250 of
their female leaders, which resulted in 50
promotions across the group in the following
6 months and saw the lessons shared
across more than 700 female - and male -
Our networks, Women@Ogilvy and Parents@Ogilvy provide a constant stream of networking resources and support to
women throughout the agency via internal
mentoring and coaching sessions to
educational events and seminars.
Much of our senior leadership are active
members of Women in Advertising and Communications London (WACL), with many events hosted at Sea Containers -
one particular initiative Ogilvy supports
alongside WACL is the Future Leaders Award
in partnership with the National Advertising Benevolent Society (NABS).
This is a training bursary open to upcoming
female talent to enable them to pursue a
course of their choice, to elevate their career
and gain valuable skills.

diversity and inclusion opportunities to ensure

OGILVY GENDER PAY REPORT 2017 3
UNDERSTANDING THE PAY GAPUK GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS In April 2017, government regulations were introduced requiring some UK companies to share statistics on their gender pay gap.
The regulations deem that any company with over 250 people must share their gender pay gap data.
Within this report, Ogilvy has the gender pay gap across the agency, bonuses and a detailed breakdown of what percentage of men and women occupy each tier of the business.
EQUAL PAYOgilvy in the UK is committed to providing equal pay for equal work, not just because this is a legal requirement but because it is the right and fair thing to do. We succeed when we have a diverse workforce who can enrich our output, both for our agency and clients.
We regularly ensure that all women and men at Ogilvy are being paid the same wage for the same work. Our pay policies and practices are designed to control potential biases and to ensure equal pay for equivalent jobs, regardless of gender.
We train all of our staff who recruit new employees to Ogilvy, to rigorously ensure there is no bias in compensation packages off ered to men and women.
THE GENDER PAY GAPThe gender pay gap is the diff e ence in the average pay, and bonuses, of all men and all women across anorganisation.
Although we are confi de t that we have equal pay for work of equal value, we do have a gender pay gap when we compare the overall average pay and bonuses for women and men.
This gap is because of the unequal distribution of men and women across the company, not because of our pay policies and practices.
Here at Ogilvy, there are fewer women who occupy roles in the upper quartiles of the company, and as a result this contributes to a gender pay gap.
