We’ve launched Workplace Champions to celebrate the leading places to work, live, and thrive in the PR industry.
We want to highlight the agencies and in-house teams that go the extra mile to ensure their employees are happy and healthy. Teams will be judged on their consideration of the ethical and moral concerns of staff, as well as their commitment to diversity and inclusion.
What does it take to be a Workplace Champion?
You must demonstrate the following four key attributes:
Do you believe that happy, healthy staff leads to a better service for clients? Do you do the utmost to ensure their wellbeing?
Are you mindful of the moral aspects of the communications work that you do? Are your staff encouraged to express their own ethical concerns?
Recruitment and retention
How do you ensure that interview candidates are sourced from the broadest pool? How do you ensure that interns are given valuable, structured internships?
What structures do you have in place to ensure that the way that you do business is as ethical as possible?
Those entering should provide up to 1,000 words responding to all four areas, in order to provide a 360 degree insight into the ethical positioning of the agency.
To enter the awards, please send your entry to email@example.com by the final deadline - payment will also be arranged by email. The PRCA member entry fee is £180+vat, and for non-members, it is £250+vat.
