St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) January 23, 2013
PR News recently announced that Blick&Staff Communications, a St. Louis-based, independently-owned agency, was named to its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) A-List. The agency received recognition for its work with clients including Energizer®, Build-A-Bear Workshop® and the Humane Society of Missouri.
“Blick&Staff Communications was founded 20 years ago on the idea that companies can help important causes in hand with achieving their business goals and objectives,” said Harriet Blickenstaff, agency founder and president.
The CSR Agency A-List honors firms that “have a proven track record in developing and managing CSR programs and social good initiatives for clients,” according to PR News. The firms must “understand the importance of communicating social responsibility to a client’s various and varying stakeholders and have developed innovative and successful CSR communications initiatives.”
Blick&Staff Communications, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, is a public relations, social media and marketing communications agency. The firm’s mission is to bring fresh thinking to a select group of clients who want to make a meaningful difference for their companies, communities and customers. The firm has a long history with CSR efforts, including the 25-year Energizer® fire safety campaign, “Change Your Clock Change Your Battery®,” and the 10-year Build-a-Bear Workshop® youth volunteerism program, “Huggable Heroes®.”
“As an agency we are whole-heartedly passionate about CSR and connecting our clients with partners and causes that can help them make a meaningful impact,” said Blickenstaff. “Our passion for this business is something our clients are consistently noting, and it’s at the heart of our success as an agency.”
Since its founding in 1993, Blick&Staff has experienced continual growth. In addition to its headquarters in Clayton, the agency operates satellite offices in New York and Los Angeles. In 2012, it expanded globally when the firm was invited to join PROI (Public Relations Organisation International), the world’s leading partnership of independently-owned PR agencies operating in more than 50 countries. Blick&Staff was selected based on its strength in media relations, marketing communications and cause marketing efforts as wells as its client-driven, results-oriented culture.
