Everything that we have accomplished, from outstanding client results to unprecedented growth, is directly correlated to having built a collaborative, flexible and motivational workplace environment in which everyone truly wants the best for each other.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 07, 2016
Technology public relations and integrated communications agency AR|PR today announced that it has been named a Top Place to Work by PR News and a Best Place to Work by the Atlanta Business Chronicle (ABC). In what PR News proclaimed to be the most competitive year for entries ever, AR|PR, in only its fourth year of existence, garnered Top Place to Work recognition alongside some of the industry’s largest and most prestigious agencies. Within its headquarter city of Atlanta, AR|PR was the only public relations agency finalist for the ABC’s Best Places to Work awards, ranking fifth in the small business category out of 50 finalists and more than 600 applicants.
“Nothing is more important than the happiness and morale of our employees,” said Anna Ruth Williams, AR|PR founder and CEO. “Everything that we have accomplished, from outstanding client results to unprecedented growth, is directly correlated to having built a collaborative, flexible and motivational workplace environment in which everyone truly wants the best for each other. As a result, we’re exceeding the 100-year old PR industry’s abysmal turnover rate, and our first employees are still our employees.”
PR News Top Place to Work winners are comprised of agencies that match their superb in-house and client PR work with equally outstanding efforts to support employees’ personal development and success. For the Atlanta Business Chronicle, AR|PR earned Best Places to Work distinction following the results of a third-party employee survey, which measured responses to questions on workplace environment, professional development opportunities, leadership effectiveness and transparency as well as team dynamics.
