PRWeek UK Best Places to Work Awards 2016: finalists revealed

The finalists in this year's PRWeek UK Best Places to Work Awards have been announced, with the second stage of judging taking place next month to find the industry's top employers.

The finalists in each category are:

Large agency (100+ employees): Brands2Life, Cohn & Wolfe, Lansons.

Medium agency (30 to 99 employees): Citypress, APCO, Hope & Glory.

Small agency (two to 29 employees): GCI Health, Interel UK, O Communications.

In-house (corporate teams):, Costa Coffee, Transport for London.

Each finalist will now face a panel interview to decide who will win the gold, silver and bronze awards for their categories. The final results will be announced in late February.

There was a marked increase in entries this year, reflecting the growing importance of the awards as PR agencies and in-house departments strive to attract the best talent.

Given the importance of gender issues in the PR industry – including the gender pay gap and parental leave - this year the judging panel includes Rowan Davies, head of policy and campaigns at Mumsnet. Also on the panel are PRCA director general Francis Ingham and PRWeek UK editor-in-chief Danny Rogers.
