Ideas Can Come from Anywhere
We don’t have a creative department; we are a creative agency. As such, we encourage everyone to contribute to the ideas process. We make sure people know that they’re supported, and challenge them to be always unafraid. Who knows where the next magical idea will come from?
Bringing Outside Creativity into the Agency
We call it Creative Training. Once a week, for half a day, we invite people to come and share with us. What new tech is out there. Who is doing what in the art space. What’s new in the production space. Innovation workshops. We even once had a guy who spun plates on little sticks for a living; he told us his wonderful and inspiring life story while he did so.
Culture Isn’t Just a Committee, It’s In Our DNA
But yes, ok, we do have a committee. A passionate group of people who take time out of their busy day to look after the “McCannites”. Everything from welcoming new members to the team, to agency parties, to a surprise soft-serve on a hot day, to helping out someone going through a hard time. We are family.
Our Family Tree
We take pictures of everyone with something that represents their passion in life. Whether it’s shopping or sport or their families, each person gets their picture on the tree, where it stays, even if one day they leave McCann. Which is why we also call it our “Legacy Tree”.
