The Best Places to Work Awards were more tightly contested than ever this year, with a marked rise in entries for 2018.

In a new development this year, PRWeek is producing an in-depth report, formed by the aggregated data of all survey responses, which will give a comprehensive overview of employer practices among UK PR agencies.

In addition, entrants can see how they perform against peers via a separate Bespoke Benchmarking Analysis - a unique, confidential report that shows your data against the aggregated scores.
