WPR Named #19 Best Small Company to Work for in the UK

At a glittering awards ceremony in early November, Best Companies – a leading authority in workplace engagement – named WPR the #19 best small company to work for in the UK.

The 2023 culmination of Best Companies’ quarterly league tables also saw WPR ranked #8 best marketing and media agency to work for in the UK and #24 best company of any size across all industries in the West Midlands.

Jane Ainsworth, WPR’s managing director, said: “We’re an ambitious agency and continually strive to deliver absolutely the best work we can for our clients.  That’s only possible by building a brilliant, creative, motivated team.

“Best Companies has such a thorough approach to how they assess team engagement that you know they are getting to the heart of the issues that matter to people. We’re thrilled to be ranked so highly nationally, within our region and in our industry.”

Jonathan Austin, founder and CEO of Best Companies, said: “Our Best Companies to Work for lists recognise and celebrate all of the organisations who are helping to make the world a better workplace. The lists represent the commitment that these organisations show every day to their teams and how they have put investing in their people strategies at the forefront of their company culture.

“Companies that prioritise their people and organisational health will inevitably find success. By continuing to innovate their practices, improve their business strategies, and find new ways to show their team how valued they are, these organisations are leading the way in engagement. 

“To make the Best Companies list is a remarkable accomplishment and WPR should be proud of all that they have achieved this year.”

Best Companies was launched in 2001 and is recognised as the standard in workplace engagement. To assess team satisfaction and engagement, Best Companies carries out detailed, anonymous surveys, which revealed that 90% of the WPR team believes their job is good for their personal growth and the same percentage ‘loves’ working for WPR.
