Agency Statement: Ruder Finn is one of the largest independent global communications agencies with offices across North America, Europe and Asia. With approximately 520 employees globally, Ruder Finn is uniquely positioned to provide clients with global perspective, insights and resources, yet small enough to bring the exceptional client service, creative edge and innovation of a boutique agency. We concentrate on big picture assignments where we can create a competitive edge for our clients with a strong focus on global strategy, creativity and quality execution. Our independence, deep bench of talent, entrepreneurial spirit and roots in the arts, dating back to our founding in 1948, drives us to bring a “creative edge”, which we see as the freedom of imagination to see things in a new way and the sharpness of thinking to our global clients.
Ruder Finn’s core areas of expertise are corporate communications, healthcare, technology and consumer. We particularly lead in corporate reputation, healthcare digital communications, C-suite thought leadership, crisis communications, employee engagement, community building and in cause-related work. Underpinning all of its offerings is a consistent focus on digital content and strategy through its award-winning full-service digital practice, RFI Studios.
We pride ourselves in our entrepreneurial culture, where all employees are empowered and encouraged to contribute at the highest level. Senior leaders at Ruder Finn are deeply involved in all accounts. The agency has won awards for being a best place to work and has one of the best turnover rates in the industry.
