UN International Women's Day (8 March 2015)

To commemorate the UN International Women's Day on 08 March 2015, we invited colleagues all over the world to tell us about a woman who inspired them. More than 50 did so. From sportswomen to politicians and their own moms, colleagues shared how they have been influenced by these role models. 

We also  provided a free compendium from Wiley's books and journals, accessible through http://www.wileyiwdresearch.com/

Our colleagues from our Social Sciences and Humanities teams moderated a blog to promote discussion and debate about gender equality. Each post was written by one of our journal editors or book authors - leading scholars in their fields. The blog can be accessed here - http://www.wileyiwdresearch.com/gender-equality-blog

International Volunteer Day (5 December 2014)

There were many big-hearted and generous colleagues in Wiley; something we discovered when we decided to honor colleague volunteers as part of the UN International Volunteer Day on 5 December 2014.

More than 50 colleagues from 14 global locations shared their volunteering experience and how it changed them for the better. From manning soup kitchens to reading programs and volunteering their pets to assist with therapy, there was no shortage of examples of how colleagues are giving back to the communities they live and work in.

International Literacy Day (8 September 2014)

To commemorate the UN International Day of Literacy on 8 September 2014, we asked colleagues all over the world to pledge to read towards a collective 890 hours and a matching cash donation would be made to the Singapore office’s adopted charity, the Mitrataa Foundation. And read our colleagues did. More than 600 colleagues all over the world participated, chalking up 1,760 hours.

We are also delighted that the beneficiaries of Mitrataa participated in the endeavor, pledging to read 89 minutes each.

    I have been working at Wiley full-time (More than 3 years)


    Wiley provides great benefits - PTO, Health Insurance and 401k are all great. Internal development is picking up, and using great technology to simplify the process of apply or looking internally to promote.


    Just as all publishers, we are trying to race the clock to get up to date with all websites and the technology aspect of our products and how they are available. But it is a primary goal by the board of directors.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your millennials for insight. Here in 2-3 years they will take over the majority of purchases, and are looking for their favorite brands now. This is the time to get them on board.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Wiley.


    A couple rounds of interviews, but they were very friendly and looked for a good fit. I highly recommend researching the company ahead of time.I first talked with an HR representative and then with the hiring manager.
