Earlier this week we found out we’ve been shortlisted for the Public Relations and Communications Association (PRCA) Workplace Champions awards.
The PRCA launched Workplace Champions this year to “celebrate the leading places in the PR industry to work, live, and thrive”.
Our submission focused on four key areas, and answered a number of questions put forward by the PRCA:
- Staff welfare. Do you believe that a happy, healthy staff leads to a better service for clients? Do you do the utmost to ensure their wellbeing?
- Account management. Are you mindful of the moral aspects of the communications work that you do? Are your staff encouraged to express their own ethical concerns?
- Recruitment and retention. How do you ensure interview candidates are sourced from the broadest pool? How do you ensure that interns are given valuable, structured internships?
- Business practices. What structures do you have in place to ensure that the way you do business is as ethical as possible?
Our director, Liz, said:
“The longer we’re in business the more I realise that the point of enterprise is to improve human lives and to facilitate growth. Our business is about creating a place where people who share the same values can come together and use their skills, express their creativity and maximise their potential.”
The award winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on 28 March at the Marriott Hotel County Hall, London.
