Become the agency that everyone wants to work for...

PRWeek’s Best Places to Work scheme has been designed to help agency leaders develop the best possible working environments for their staff.

As of this year, all agencies that enter the Awards can pay to receive personalised benchmarks as well as the new Best Places to Work Report that takes an in-depth look at current workplace trends in PR agencies. The Awards, now in their fifth consecutive year, now include a comprehensive survey, a telephone interview stage, and three brand new categories: Reward, Culture, and Organisational Health.

Enter the Best Places to Work Awards to be empowered with information, and for the chance to be recognised with a PRWeek award. There has never been a better time to make sure you’re giving your agency the best chance of attracting and retaining the top talent.

The 2019 scheme is set to launch in January. Please contact bptw@prweek.com if you are interested in purchasing a copy of this year's Best Places to Work Report.

Best Places to Work Awards

Show the PR industry that your agency is a place for top talent by winning a PRWeek Best Places to Work Award. With the main size-based categories carrying Gold, Silver and Bronze winners, new horizontal categories give you three additional chances to be recognised for your commitment to providing a great workplace for your staff.

Categories:

  • Large Agency (100+ UK employees)
  • Mid-Size Agency (30-99 UK employees)
  • Small Agency (2-29 UK employees)
  • Reward [NEW]
  • Culture [NEW]
  • Organisational Health [NEW]

Entering the Awards scheme consists of completing a extensive survey, as well as a follow-up telephone interview. This will help us to build a comprehensive picture of each agency that enters. 

Once the Awards have closed for entries, a shortlist will be created for each of the main categories. The shortlists will be passed to an independent panel of senior figures from the PR world prior to a face-to-face judging session that will take place as part of the process to decide the winners.


Bespoke Benchmarking Analysis [NEW]

Find out exactly how you measure up with personalised benchmarks. Discover the areas where you’re falling behind, and the areas where you’re better than everyone else.

Once the Awards have closed for entries, all entrants that purchase the Bespoke Benchmarking Analysis (purchased in combination with the Best Places to Work Report) will receive a unique, confidential report that shows their data against the aggregated scores of all entrants.

Please note that the Bespoke Benchmarking Analysis must be purchased at the time of registration.


Best Places to Work Report [NEW]

How do you become the best place to work in PR? What does it take to consistently attract and retain the top talent?

As of this year we’re giving entrants a rare chance to get an invaluable look at current workplace trends in PR agencies through the Best Places to Work Report, with the basis of the report formed by the aggregated data of all entrants’ survey responses.

Don’t risk falling behind. Let us fill you in on all you need to know, and start making the changes that you need to make.

Please note that your responses will be used even if you choose not to purchase a copy of the Best Places to Work Report. At no time will your agency’s individual scores be visible within the report.
