Rooted in this purpose is commitment to diversity, equality and inclusion.
We champion this and believe it is critical to our business success by strengthening the advice we provide our clients, enhancing an inclusive culture for our people, and influencing positive societal change.
We are a leader in the corporate communications and public relations industry on gender equality, ethical behaviour, employee ownership and staff welfare.
We’re 100% owned by people who work in the business and for the last 18 years, we have been named as one of the UK's ‘Best Places to Work’ in any sector by the Great Places to Work® Institute.
Throughout our history we have also championed talented women and created a culture where they can excel.
Our on-going partnership with the BBC 50:50 represents an extensions of our commitment to gender diversity, and in the investment and finance sector, we help the The Diversity Project to accelerate progress on diversity and inclusion issues.
We’ve also combatted inequality more widely in society, supporting many different projects. From partnerships with social mobility organisations Drive Forward, Making the Leap and Women of the Future to part-funding the SEREDA Research Project by the University of Birmingham, investigating sexual and gender-based violence towards forced migrants.
Since day one we have donated 1% of our profits to charities such as The Felix Project and Centrepoint, and since 2008 we have partnered with arts charity HighTide who exist to promote diversity in the theatre.
We are always reviewing and if necessary changing our policies and behaviours. Our approach is to look at all of the interactions we have with society and improve them. This includes our recruitment, culture, our voice, our events, the advice we give to clients and our suppliers.
