Culture eats strategy for breakfast

Culture counts.
We believe a positive and nurturing culture creates business momentum and that the
agency with the strongest culture delivers the most innovative media product.

Peter Drucker, the organisational management guru, put it perfectly when he said: “Culture eats strategy for breakfast”.

Career Opportunities

We believe that the most important career decision people can make is the culture they choose to grow in. At PHD we’re like a big family. One that nurtures talent, harnesses potential and encourages growth.

Finding a Better Way

Our promise – we constantly seek out the best ways of working. It’s this philosophy that energises us to continuously challenge and evolve industry standards and maximise outcome for our clients.

Collective and connected

Our way of working – we are better together. Finding a Better Way starts with how we think and organise ourselves. In a world where consumers are connected everywhere, and with new technologies continually reshaping the communications landscape, ideas are better when co-created. Collaboration wins.

Our values

At PHD we value curiosity, courage and openness.

Finding people with these qualities is one of our central quests, making us a diverse mix of the most curious, courageous and open people around the world.

Our Values #1

openness

We know that being open helps us to explore, listen and empathise. It ensures we collaborate more instinctively and successfully with our team, our partners and our clients.

Our Values #2

courage

Courage is the power to let go of the familiar. We like to challenge convention and try new things. Only then do we know we have given it our best shot. Permission to fail is part of our culture, in the spirit of Finding a Better Way.

Our Values #3

curiosity

We are inquisitive by nature. We like to question, explore and learn. We love unchartered territory. It makes for more interesting conversations. We think curiosity is infectious and gets to more powerful human truths and insights, and ultimately, better work.

Our Values #4

creativity

Creativity is letting go of certainties and seeing the familiar in a new light. It’s about breaking habits and rules and sparking ideas that can ignite and set the world alight.

Our Values #5

collaboration

Collaboration is knowing that the strength of a team is in each individual and the strength of each individual is in the team. When we all move to work together, success takes care of itself.

Giving back matters to us

Big Hug

Our Big Hug charity initiative reflects the agency’s belief that generosity, community spirit and offering to help without being asked are essential characteristics.

Every year our offices launch Big Hug initiatives to help a diverse range of charities. Highlights so far have included: PHD Singapore hosting a “Superheroes” event for the Children’s Cancer Foundation; PHD Hungary working with the Hungarian Federation of the Blind and Partially Sighted Guide Dog Training School to raise awareness of the difficulties the blind face if they don’t have the assistance of a guide dog; PHD Australia being awarded the Just Giving Australia Company Fundraiser of the Year Award 2014 for its work with the Australian Paralympics Society, raising money to help fund sending the Australian Paralympic team to Brazil.

Since launching Big Hug in 2011, to celebrate PHD turning 21, PHD agencies have raised millions in donations and contributed thousands of hours to good causes around the world.
