How do you become the best place to work in PR?

PRWeek’s Best Places to Work scheme has been designed to help PR agency and client-side comms team leaders develop the best possible working environments for their staff, while recognising outstanding workplaces and initiatives these businesses do.

After an uncertain year, our new COVID-19 Employee Support category gives you the chance to be in the spotlight for how your organisation has adapted its workplace policies during the era of the coronavirus pandemic.

With entries judged in a rigorous two stage process, and competition from the best agencies in the UK, the Best Places to Work Awards is the best platform to attract the industry's up & coming talent.

  • Large Agency (100+ UK employees)
  • Mid-Size Agency (30-99 UK employees)
