Global revenue increased nearly 10 per cent in 2016, with nearly seven per cent organic growth on top of 12% in 2015. Fifteen global markets saw double digit growth. The agency now represents nearly half of the Fortune 100 (49%), and 65% of the firm’s top 100 clients are multi-market engagements. Weber Shandwick retained 98% of the top 50 clients, and more than three quarters of growth was from existing clients. The extraordinary workforce at the centre the agency’s success grew by four per cent to more than 3,600 worldwide. Community involvement continued around the world. A good example is the pro bono Impact Project which included supporting German language classes to help integrate Syrian refugees into society and addressing drug abuse and homelessness in Los Angeles.
