Weber Shandwick, which has four offices in Scotland, has been named “Best Multinational Firm to Work For in EMEA” by The Holmes Report, as part of its annual “Best Public Relations Agencies to Work For” survey.
Weber Shandwick, one of the world’s leading global public relations agencies, has offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Inverness.
In explaining this accolade, The Holmes Report cited that Weber Shandwick received high marks from its employees who noted they had confidence in the quality of management at the firm and within their office and practice areas; felt the leadership of the firm was respected within the industry and also scored high marks for its professional development efforts, which included more than 270 individual training courses last year, or 1.400 training days for employees in Europe.
“This award which is based on direct feedback from our own staff, is a testament to them, our management team and the clients we partner with,” said Nora Senior, managing director of Weber Shandwick in Scotland.
Weber Shandwick is continuing to expand its Scotland team by recruiting for an account manager in the Aberdeen office.
The award builds on Weber Shandwick’s remarkable global award success from 2009, which includes a PRWeek UK Global Agency Report Card gold medal, being named “International Consultancy of the Year” at both the PRWeek Awards and the Public Relations Consultants Association (PRCA) Awards, “Agency of the Year” at the European Excellence Awards, and receiving an inaugural Cannes Lion award.
