MWWPR entered the 2017 awards season with not one, not two, but three industry awards including a PR News' Platinum PR Firm of the Year win, a recent nomination as a Top Place to Work in PR and a People's Choice Stevie® Award for Favorite Advertising, Marketing & PR agency. These wins are a testament to the agency's commitment to articulating not what it can offer clients but rather how it can profoundly impact a client's business.
CEO Michael Kempner attributes the recognition to a focus on a new agency management model, where Strategy, Culture, Client Service, Operations and Finance work as a fully integrated team to provide best-in-class service internally and externally. Over the course of the last 18 months, the agency has made a significant investment in talent acquisition, new client service models and product offerings, and fueling integration across all offices and practice group. And it shows.
"Our new approach to agency management has allowed us to better leverage world-class storytelling to help clients matter more to the stakeholders who matter most," said Kempner. "We have adopted a matrixed structure which allows us to more nimbly apply resources to achieve the best possible results for our clients. These awards and recent client wins that represent leading brands in the technology and food spaces are a direct result of our commitment to being fearless and relentless in creating relevancy for our clients."
And while MWWPR may be classified as "mid-size," it is one of the world's leading independent full-service PR agencies. With eight offices across the US and the UK and a global network of partners, the agency is home to a team of 200+ independent thinkers and doers who will stop at nothing to achieve its clients' objectives. But it's not just clients that matter.
Employees of the agency and its culture are the agency's most valuable assets. They are what makes MWWPR matter more to clients. By creating a supportive and inclusive environment through an employee benefits and engagement program fondly called #MWWLife. #MWWLIFE is the embodiment of the belief that our people are professional adults and should be treated as such. Key attributes go well beyond standard health insurance and awesome snacks to include a diverse hiring pipeline, an advisory panel that gives Millennial employees a voice in decision making, an unlimited PTO policy and one of the most generous paid maternity leave policies in any industry.
