WHY WORK FOR LANSONS
Lansons is possibly the only true “employee-owned” business in the PR industry, with more than a third of our people owners of the partnership. The opportunity for career progression is unrivalled. Five of our board directors and three associates started ‘at the bottom’; in total 29 per cent of people at account director level and above started out at trainee level. People stay with us, over a third have been with us for more than five years, and a fifth have been here for more than ten years.
We care about being a responsible corporate citizen and this resonates with staff. We commit 1% of profits to charity, run a ‘green’ environmental policy and have established a ground-breaking, award-winning pro-bono partnership with the registered theatre production charity HighTide.
Lansons is ranked 15th in the UK’s Top 50 Medium Size Workplaces by the Great Place to Work® Institute and Top 50 for twelve years running. Lansons also took the top spot at PR Week’s Best Places to Work in 2014, 2015 and 2016 (mid-sized agency) and bronze in the large agency category in 2017.
We believe we’ve built a special culture that blends a lively and diverse consultancy environment, with a serious, roll-up your sleeves work ethic that puts clients and high value results first.
Lansons’ staff turnover was 20% in 2014 compared to 25% for very large agencies (latest PRCA industry benchmarking study). Over a third of our people have been with us for over five years.
