The deadline for PRovoke's Asia-Pacific Agencies of the Year research has been extended to 12 June. In addition, Provoke has opened its Best Agencies to Work For survey in Asia-Pacific for 2020.

Being selected as an Agency of the Year or Best Agency to Work For by PRovoke is considered the ultimate benchmark of PR firm performance and culture. Both initiatives cost nothing but your time — PRovoke views them as editorial exercises that contribute significantly to the benchmarking of PR agency performance across the world. 

Please note that Agencies of the Year and Best Agencies to Work For are conducted separately from the Asia-Pacific SABRE Awards, which are focused on campaign work and can be entered here

Agencies of the Year

Consultancies can make submissions via this link until 12 June. In addition, agencies can also arrange a virtual briefing with a PRovoke editor to review your performance in greater detail — we would always recommend this for multinational agencies, in particular.

Consultancies that have started a submission before can still go back and revise it until the deadline. (Please let us know if you need your unique submission link.)

Best Agencies to Work For

Agencies interested in participating in the Best Agencies to Work For should contact [email protected] by 5 June. Please use the subject line 'Best Agencies to Work For'

Based on the research, we'll present the top five agencies to work for in various categories in August and the top-ranked agencies will be recognized at the SABRE Awards Asia-Pacific.

The survey asks for employee views on a wide range of issues including the integrity of senior management, the quality of professional development, empowerment, risk-taking and compensation. All agency data is kept confidential by virtue of encryption.

Other Best Agency to Work For benefits include:

- Knowing how your agency compares to the industry as a whole, and agencies of a similar size, when it comes to the key factors that drive employee engagement.

- Possible recognition of being a great place to work that can be used to make recruiting and retention of top talent easier.

-  The ability to obtain a specific report, scorecard and/or dataset for your agency. The survey used for Best Agency to Work For is a comprehensive and state-of-the-art questionnaire on employee engagement and its drivers.
