WPR Shortlisted As ‘Workplace Champions’ In 2024

WPR has been shortlisted by the PRCA as one of its ‘workplace champions’ for 2024.

The awards celebrate the best places in the PR industry to “work, live, and thrive” and seek to identify the PR consultancies and in-house teams that do the most to build positive, inclusive working environments.

As well as being shortlisted in the large agency category, the Birmingham PR agency has been included in a special category recognising companies that deliver exceptional training and development for their team.

Jane Ainsworth, WPR’s managing director, said: “It’s our talented team that truly makes us the agency we are. Put simply, we want to reward brilliant people with brilliant opportunities, enabling them to have rewarding careers and enjoy positive, fulfilling lives at work and at home.

“That has been our goal as an agency for over three decades, and it has never been more important than it is today. The last few years have seen enormous changes in the workplace, and we’ve embraced the opportunity to consider what’s important to our team, clients, and wider community, so that we can focus our ESG commitments on meaningful actions that will have real impact.”  

To assess the award entries, the judges look at the ways an organisation values its team, its approach to training and development, how it is addressing issues around diversity, equity and inclusion, and the ways it is positively impacting society and the environment. Winners will be announced later this spring.

This year’s shortlisting follows WPR’s success in 2023, when it was named PRCA’s workplace champions in the large agency category.
