Best Places to Work 2024

We’ve been recognised as one of the UK’s best places to work in the annual Sunday Times listing for 2024.  

One of just a handful of comms agencies to make the list, we were praised for our focus on nurturing and developing our team through mentorship and shared learning as well as our flexible approach to working, which includes allowing our people to work from anywhere during August. Our employee retention rate was also noted, with more than a quarter of our team clocking up more than five years’ service. 

Carl Daruvalla, our CEO, said: 

“Being positioned alongside some of the biggest and best brands in the UK is a huge achievement and a significant milestone in our journey to becoming an internationally recognised, world class consultancy. Making the Sunday Times list on our first attempt shows that we’re heading in the right direction, but our work doesn’t stop here, and we know there’s more that we can do. 

“Since our MBO in late 2022, we’ve focused on listening to our people and building a culture that recognises and supports them. From enhancing our benefits, like flexible working and gifted time off for birthdays and summer afternoons, to strengthening our training offer, we’re working hard to create a best-in-class working environment. The fact that the Sunday Times listing is based on feedback from our team is the icing on the cake.  

“Importantly, our people are driving this too. In the last year, our teams have set up some brilliant initiatives including our LGBTQI+, Women, Neurodiversity and soon-to-be-launched Culture networks, that are bringing together people from across our teams and offices to create inclusive, supportive groups that are helping us all achieve more.” 

The prestigious Sunday Times Best Places to Work, which has been running for over 20 years, recognises honours and celebrates Britain’s top employers and acknowledges the best workplaces for women, LGBTQIA+ community, disabled employees, ethnic minorities, younger and older workers, and wellbeing. It uses 26 questions from its partner WorkL’s employee engagement survey, developed by behavioural scientists, data analysts, psychologists, business leaders, academics and other independent parties to most accurately monitor employee engagement, wellbeing and discretionary effort in the workplace.  

To achieve a high overall engagement score, an organisation must score well across WorkL’s six-step framework: Reward and Recognition, Instilling Pride, Information Sharing, Empowerment, Wellbeing and Job Satisfaction.
