JY&A logo Jack Yan & Associates: Creating Harmony - Global media and communications with ethical and moral solutions

A constant pioneer.

Many of the concepts in today's business world were realized early at Jack Yan & Associates, including virtual companies (1987), online magazines (1994), moral global brands (2000), which have led on to the push for corporate social responsibility today, and spirituality in business (2003).
   The company has been ahead of corporate developments. It believes that organizations do not only have to be financially secure, but must be completely moral, honourable and accountable to the publics they serve, in a transparent fashion.

   We have managed, through hard work and good luck, to create industry leaders in every field we've entered. We would like to share that same formula with our clients, our allies and our partners.



Jack Yan & Associates' culture is akin to a laissez-faire start-up—even though we've been going for 15 years. Jack Yan himself believes in Confucian concepts where there's an exchange of duties between parties—and it also means self-regulation, awareness of personal reputation and responsibility, and freedom of speech.
   This "do unto others" approach has served us well, minimizing bureaucracy. It hasn't always been easy, but we try to keep things in that entrepreneurial mood. Part of this is in our history: this company was around when some of us were teenagers and suffered ageism and prejudice in the industry. We avoid these, helping those in the positions we were in when we started in business.
   There's an informal tone within the company. Everyone is addressed by their first names. Titles are largely to help customers understand roles, but there are no real layers of management. However, accurate written communication is encouraged and the company is a strict guardian of its brands.
   Joking around is encouraged. Head office indulges in The Simpsons' quotes and references to South Park in the working day. Pro bono work is undertaken, too, and discounts commonly and frequently given to non-profit organizations and approved educational institutions.
