Walker Sands Communications

Walker Sands is a creative agency at the forefront of the public relations industry evolution. In the 15 years since our founding, we’ve cultivated a culture that prioritizes collaboration. While other agencies have struggled to bring public relations and digital services together, we’ve made that our foundation.

So far, our approach has paid off. Over the past three years, we’ve grown revenues 177%, to$7 million, growing 52% alone in 2015 and bringing on n 28 new employees. This immense growth is a result of our thriving culture, which Entrepreneur recognized in its inaugural Top Company Cultures list.

We’re here to tinker with new ideas, ask big questions and have fun along the way. Our knowledge sharing and process improvement doesn’t flow from the top down. It’s driven by our people through initiatives such as our kaizens, 13 staff-led groups that facilitate everything from wellness workshops to our internal newsletter, volunteer events, happy hours, and our office snack supply.
