INTRODUCTION

The Publicis Groupe owns a variety of advertising, marketing, public relations, studios and media companies around the world. These companies were acquired over a number of years and naturally each one has adopted a different way of running its business.

While it is very important for the Publicis Groupe to respect and maintain the various individual identities of these companies and encourage their creativity and culture, it is also important to bring a certain unified standard to these companies and take advantage of the size and strength of the organisation as a whole.

Re:Sources UK was created to achieve this objective by centralising the finance, administrative, legal, tax, IT, procurement and property functions and leave the units to do what they do best in terms of looking after the client's business.

Re:Sources UK is wholly owned by the Publicis Groupe (www.publicisgroupe.com)
