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 Luncheon Ceremony held at the Yale Club in New York on Nov. 21.
PR News noted Ketchum’s significant organizational shift in 2018, which “led to new career opportunities for the firm’s talent. While restructuring for the future, Ketchum doubled down on its commitment to fostering an environment of engagement, of transparency and of belonging, where its people feel comfortable bringing their whole selves to work.”
Of the award, Barri Rafferty, partner, president and CEO of Ketchum, said, “This recognition is a testament to the collegiality and generosity our employees have fostered throughout our nearly 100-year history. Our talent values our commitment to flexibility, inclusivity, career development and continuous learning as we set a high bar to attract and retain the industry’s most in-demand talent. Our people are our greatest asset, and it’s critical that we provide a true sense of belonging for all.”
This latest award follows several high honors bestowed upon Ketchum in recent months. Ketchum was named Global Creative Agency of the Year at the Holmes Report‘s Global SABRE Awards ceremony in October, where Ketchum also won three Global SABRE Awards for work on behalf of its clients. Earlier this year, Ketchum won 29 Cannes Lions, making it the 2019 Cannes Lions Festival’s most-awarded PR firm. In addition, PRWeek named Ketchum the Best Agency of the Past 20 Years.
