OUR VALUES

“Work Hard. Be Nice.” These four words have served as Orion’s mantra since our Founder and Global CEO Brian McMahon hung a poster in his first Orion ​office. This phrase became the​ foundation on which we built our culture, a company that strives to deliver quantifiable value while remaining committed to our ethics. We take pride in the strength of our relationships – with clients, agencies, media partners, and of course, one another.

Our Commitment to Diversity & Inclusion

“Take the lead. Make the change. You have my support.”

That was the directive from Brian McMahon, Orion’s CEO and Founder, following an honest converstion with two employees, Felicia Thomas and LeAndra Cleveland. Both are black women who wanted to walk around our Global Headquarters, look around, and see the world that exists outside its doors. Simply put, to see more people who look like themselves.

In 2017, Global President Greg Walsh implemented Diversity & Inclusion as one of the top three company goals. Our entire C-suite was influential in helping to launch and develop COSMOS, from the top, down. They empowered our employees to take this program forward. COSMOS is now an employee-led committee dedicated to attract, retain and develop diverse talent.

We now endeavor to place the diversity lens over everything we do — from our recruiting strategy, recalibrating talent, compensation reviews to promotion selects. These efforts are coupled with providing our employees with the opportunities to understand and celebrate diversity in the workplace.

We are thrilled to have been honored at the 2018 IPG Inclusion Awards with the Most Inclusive Climate Award, given to the agency with the highest score. This marked the fourth time in our history that Orion was awarded in this category.

COSMOS hosts and attends various multicultural events throughout the year nationwide to build relationships, communicate our diversity initiatives, and attract diverse talent.

Here are some ways we achieve diversity in our workplace:

  • Unconscious bias training to show our expectations of culture/environment
  • Building relationships through diverse university and professional networks
  • Communicating our diversity initiatives through networking events and social media
  • Development focus and planning for diverse talent
  • Various training sessions on interviewing techniques and psychological safety
  • Invite employees to be a part of the initiative to take actions forward
  • Events to showcase our diverse talent

At Orion, kindness has always been a core value. We created Orion Gives Back, our charitable program, that supports the communities in which we work and live. Since inception, Orion Gives Back has donated tens of millions in cash and in-kind donations to hundreds of organizations around the world.
