For much of the world, 2020 will be remembered in two parts — the short few months before the coronavirus took hold and after. Our Best Agencies to Work For surveys in EMEA were taken in February, just as the coronavirus was spreading. Given how dramatically the world has changed since then, what makes for a good employer has shifted some too. Many of the agencies on this list have now doubled-down on flexibility and mental health initiatives, while also driving more morale and engagement activities.
The pandemic has disproportionately impacted communities of color. This, coupled with ongoing police brutality in the United States, has also pushed racism and justice to the forefront and forced the PR industry to, once again, reflect on its poor track record when it comes to recruiting, retaining, and promoting Black employees. As the industry faces more pressures to take action, we asked the CEOs from this list how they plan to do this within their organizations. You can read those comments here.
Meanwhile, the #1 Best Agencies to Work For in each category are listed below. The full analysis on the winners — and the top ranking agencies in each category can be found here. The #1 agencies in each category will be recognized at the virtual 2020 EMEA SABRE Awards on June 30 at 4.30pm BST. Please book your tickets here and start arranging your viewing parties now.
