Our people and purpose have been powering Hearst for more than 136 years. Our 22,000 colleagues around the world advance our mission to inform, inspire and positively impact our communities, and we’re celebrating you and the important work we did together. We educated ourselves and others through engaging conversations, we opened new offices, welcomed new businesses and new team members. We experimented, innovated and even played pickleball and curled together (go, Fitch Outsliders!). It was a year of successes — big and small.
