WPP employs 110,00 people (including associates) in 2,000 offices in 106 countries.

The success of our business depends on attracting and retaining the best people. It is the creativity and flair of our people that makes our clients choose WPP companies.

This makes it vital to maintain high employment standards including providing a workplace where people from all backgrounds feel comfortable, rewarding talent through competitive salaries and benefits and investing in training to help our employees develop their knowledge and skills.

WPP’s Chief Talent Officer, Mark Linaugh, has overall responsibility for attracting, developing and retaining our talent.

Human resources policies are set and implemented at operating company level. Since we do not have a single set of employment measures and practices to report on, we have selected a few in-depth case histories to illustrate our approach and show how our companies are managing these issues in practice.
