Ketchum, a leading global communications consultancy, was recognized for the eighth consecutive year as one of the Top Places to Work in PR by PR News. Ketchum has received this accolade every year since 2010, marking the longest run of any company to be featured on the list. This designation honors the agency's outstanding educational, social and cultural programs that support employees' growth and success.
Winners were selected by PR News editors and an outside panel of industry experts and peers, and honorees received their awards at the Top Places to Work Awards Dinner held at the Edison Ballroom in New York last night.
Rob Flaherty, partner, chairman and CEO of Ketchum, said, "Attracting, developing and retaining the industry's best talent is one of our top priorities at Ketchum. Through our innovative talent programs like LaunchPad and Belong@Ketchum, we focus on building a diverse and inclusive environment where our employees feel comfortable bringing their whole selves to work. I'm proud to work alongside the best people in the business."
"This long-standing recognition is a testament to the culture Ketchum and its employees have fostered. Our innovative talent programs, combined with the enthusiasm and commitment that Ketchum colleagues bring to work, make Ketchum the special place it is today: a place both clients and talent seek out and stay a part of for years."
