Excellent job!! Thank you for producing such high quality work and making Cleveland stand out. We couldn’t have done it without you.”

VML New Employee Welcome Kit
CHALLENGE Create a one-of-a-kind welcome experience for all new hires.
IDEA Start welcoming the new hire before they even arrive, so he or she feels like a VMLer immediately.
The warm welcome starts a send-ahead keychain and personalized note from VML's president. When they arrive for their first day, they're presented with a custom roll case — a roll case that shows who VML is, what's important and how to get involved, which allows the new employee to feel a part of the agency immediately.
The consultant who brought Electrolux’s RFP to our agency was named to Ad Age’s 40 Under 40 list. There was only one appropriate way to congratulate him – a fridge ad, obviously.
