Revealed: PRWeek UK Best Places to Work 2017 winners

The calibre of entrants rose again this year, and the judging team had a difficult task deciding which agencies and in-house PR teams would receive which accolade.

Entrants were whittled down to three in each of the four categories via paper judging. The 12 winners then faced a second panel interview session with the judges to decide the Gold, Silver and Bronze rankings.
