Wieden+Kennedy introduces global company wide summer break

Indian office to be shut for a week

Wieden+Kennedy introduces global company wide summer break
Wieden+Kennedy has introduced a global summer break for its employees across offices. 
 
The decision was made following the agency believing that it had to do its bit to reduce the pressure on its employees following the stress of the pandemic affecting mental health.
 
The Indian office will be shut for a week starting 19 July.
 
Dean Wei, ECD, W+K Delhi, said, “W+K always talk about the work coming first, but what we’ve all endured makes it clear that our people are our greatest asset and they need a break. We’re so glad that we can do something small so that they can switch off, spend time with family and re-energise.”
 
Gautham Narayanan, MD, W+K Delhi, added, “We love making work that matters for our clients, but at times like this, you realise other things matter more than work. People are currently too scared or are running on adrenaline but as the Covid situation gets better, the emotional toll will start to take hold. That’s why, we’re very serious about giving our people some respite. Our clients have been supportive and understanding by helping us navigate this together. We’re not surprised, but are very grateful; that’s what true partners do."
