PRWeek Best Places to Work 2023
PRWeek has announced the shortlist for its prestigious Best Places to Work Awards 2023, putting WPR in the running for the gold award in the mid-sized agency category.
The awards, which attract entries from agencies and in-house comms teams across the UK, explore an organisation’s approach to a wide range of areas including: culture, wellbeing and mental health support; rewards and benefits; organisational health and ethics; diversity and inclusion; training and career development; and flexible working. As part of the judging process, PRWeek also conducts an anonymous engagement survey with the whole team.
Jane Ainsworth, WPR’s managing director, said: “We’re delighted to have been shortlisted by PRWeek – it is fantastic recognition of a philosophy that sits right at the heart of what WPR stands for. We’ve had a people-first approach for over three decades, but the last few years have really brought home how important the strong team culture is within our agency.
“From investing in the next generation of industry talent and unleashing the potential of our team to fulfil their career aspirations, to protecting work/life balance and enabling life-enriching experiences, we want WPR to be the best possible place to work.”
The PRWeek awards scheme was created to identify agencies and in-house comms teams that are developing the best possible working environments for their teams. Winners will be announced in late spring.
This announcement comes hot on the heels of news that WPR has been shortlisted in both the large agency and training and development categories of the PRCA Workplace Champions awards, in recognition of the emphasis the Birmingham PR agency puts on growing and developing talent.
