We found out that we made six of the shortlists at the PR Week Best Places to Work Awards 2024

“We are delighted” is one of PR’s most over-used clichés. To the point that we ban it from use in press releases. First of all because it’s become so ubiquitous in quotes that it’s like wallpaper and second because, if you’re sending out a press release then it’s pretty obvious you’re delighted about it.

Anyway. On this occasion we genuinely are delighted to have found ourselves shortlisted for no fewer than six PR Week Best Places to Work Awards this year.

As was written on the topic by James (our co-founder) …

When Jo Carr and I started Hope&Glory PR we were asked what our USP would be. We glibly (maybe arrogantly) said we didn’t want to be different, we just wanted to be better.

To deliver better work with less grit. And to be a better place to work for our teams. Thirteen years on it’s with considerable pride that, when measured against our peers, we’re still delivering on that ambition.

And it really is a matter of immense pride that we have always produced outstanding work but have never felt like a sweatshop (at least for any sustained amount of time – we all have our busy months) and that we’ve always been an inclusive, kind and supportive place to work without ever feeling like a country club. A balance of challenge and support.

We’ve been shortlisted as Mid-Sized Agency for our overall work across employee wellbeing and belonging which is a source of considerable pride across the business.

Meantime we’ve also been recognised for our work in Diversity and Inclusion – or belonging as we call it here at Hope&Glory.

Our people development has been noted as we’re up for an award for offering the best Training and Development – evidenced by the fact that, at 12 years young, almost half of our 90-strong team started with us as interns and that three former interns now sit on our board.

Speaking of which we’re also up for Best Intern Scheme.

Our work on our environment policies and practices sees us up for the Sustainability Award while our work to ensure that we also have a positive environment for our team means that we’re up for the Mental Health Champion Award as well.

Fingers crossed we pick up an award or two when we gather for the presentation of the  trophies at the end of the process.
