OHIO UNIVERSITY SALES CENTRE - SDS is the first corporate sponsor for the program's media/advertising certificate. The Sales Centre is one of only a handful of college programs nationwide that teach the art and the science of professional, consultative sales. Many SDSers are Ohio University alumni.
AAF NATIONAL STUDENT AD COMPETITION - Our Ad-ology division is one of only six market research firms to sponsor the American Advertising Federation's National Student Advertising Compeition. This competition pits student teams from the largest U.S. colleges against each other to provide an effective advertising campaign for one of the nation's leading brands.
FLEX-OPTIONS FOR WOMEN - A family-friendly work environment is critical to the success of a privately-owned company. Several initiatives have been implemented from the U.S. Department of Labor Women's Bureau Flex-Options Project. These include: telecommuting, work from home and flex time options. We also actively support Olentangy Local Schools through volunteer efforts.
ARMY NATIONAL GUARD - SDS provides those who wish to serve our country special benefits. Our support of our armed forces is done with pride and enthusiasm, not out of obligation.
ROTARY INTERNATIONAL - Rotarians are business leaders with strong ethical beliefs dedicated to service projects that benefit our communities. Volunteerism and support of projects that help decrease child mortality is a common mission for Rotary International.
PELOTONIA - Led by our company president, SDS supports the annual Pelotonia bicycling tour in Central Ohio as a means to raise funds for cancer research at the James Cancer Hospital at the Ohio State University.
Through our AdMall and Ad-ology divisions, we are active associate members of several national and regional trade associations for media, advertising, and marketing.
