PRWeeks Best Places to Work


 PRWeek’s Best Places to Work scheme has been designed to help PR agency and client-side comms team leaders develop the best possible working environments for their staff, while recognising outstanding workplaces and initiatives these businesses do.


The Awards are an ideal platform to attract the industry's best talent.

A NOTE FROM THE EDITOR



"Competition for talent in the PR industry remains fierce, so there's never been a more important time to shout about your credentials as a great employer. 

PRWeek's Best Places to Work Awards is the perfect way to do just that. With seven specialist categories alongside the usual Gold awards, there are plenty of ways to prove that your organisation is among the sector's best workplaces."

John Harrington, Editor, PRWeek UK
