The PRCA has launched Workplace Champions, aimed at celebrating the leading places in the PR industry to work, live, and thrive. We want to celebrate the agencies and in-house teams that go the extra mile to ensure their employees are happy and healthy; that give consideration to the ethical and moral concerns of staff; that recruit with diversity in mind; and that have good business practices at their heart.
What does it take to be a Workplace Champion?
You must demonstrate the following four key attributes:
Do you believe that a 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.
