iCrossing Cares

In every level of our organization, giving back is in our DNA. We created iCrossing Cares, an annual week-long global philanthropy initiative, to give back to our local communities. Recent projects include hosting a field day for students in Chicago, landscaping Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, and volunteering at a food bank in Dallas. In addition to iCrossing Cares, we also encourage every employee to take at least one day off per year to give back in a way that’s meaningful to them.

Our motto is simple: Bring your whole self to work. Our employees are comfortable being themselves, embracing each other’s differences and supporting their teams. When you bring your whole self, you’re saying “yes” to being who you are. To being authentic. To trusting that your coworkers will accept your unique contributions. It’s what makes our company culture — and our work — stand out.

Innovative solutions are born from an inclusive environment. That’s why TheSocial fosters a diverse culture and encourages iCrossing employees to be conscious change-agents.

We think of ourselves as a motley crew of culturally aware marketers. TheSocial steers the agency toward this vision by actively seeking out the support and celebration of an ever-changing culture. It’s a counterbalance to homogenous thinking.

TheSocial works to keep iCrossing in tune with the community it serves. Our goal is to make our agency a smarter, more welcoming place for people to bring their whole self to work.

iCrossing Women’s mission is to empower the company’s women to achieve their professional goals. In creating a supportive community, we hope to foster the attributes women bring to their teams, elevate the discourse around women and their accomplishments, and facilitate the path to leadership. This group aims to give women not just one seat at the table, but many — and to celebrate all the ways iCrossing benefits from their contributions.

iCrossing is committed to our people’s personal and professional development. This includes many kinds of learning, ranging from live-facilitated and self-guided internal courses to third-party partnership offerings, conferences, seminars and informal learning situated in practice. We provide our employees continuous learning opportunities from our technology partners including Facebook, Google, BING etc. We have amazing opportunities to hear directly from industry and political leaders through Hearst’s Speakers Series, Master Class.

Our Story

iCrossing has been unleashing brand potential for 19 years and counting. Since then, we’ve expanded to nearly 1,000 employees in 10 countries – with offices throughout the United States, Europe, Latin America and Asia. And it’s all thanks to the power of potential. Our clients include Amazon, Bayer, Bridgestone, Blue Cross Blue Shield, BMW Group, Church & Dwight, DIRECTV, LEGO, LG, L’Oréal, Microsoft, NBA, PepsiCo, SAP, SiriusXM Radio, Starwood and Toyota.

People today expect more from brands. We’re an agency that sits at the crossroads of pretty and gritty. We relish the chance to outthink and out-hustle everyone else. We celebrate individuals and diverse points of view. We embrace our performance roots and expertise, harmonizing creative storytelling and compelling content with the precision of digital performance marketing. And we do it to deliver the best possible outcomes for our clients. (Oh, and we like to have fun along the way.)

We Unleash Potential

A year in the life of an iCrossing employee includes hard work, fun outings and lending a helping hand. Oh, and there’s also the occasional dance break. Take a peek at what we’ve been up to lately.
