The most successful teams in sports create an environment in which their players can succeed. In the case of PR teams, that’s not just an on-the-premises pool table or bowling nights. Rather, it's about providing benefits and an environment that enable both professional and personal growth. The organizations listed here place a high value on collaboration, but each one has created its own path toward optimal teamwork—paths that often involve mentoring, career development, community involvement and an open door style of management.
We present our 2011 Top Places to Work in PR—the agencies, corporations and nonprofits that truly walk the walk for their employees. All of these organizations were honored at a Nov. 30, 2011, awards luncheon at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C, which also celebrated the PR People Award winners and honorable mentions, the 2011 PR Hall of Fame inductees and the 2011 15-to-Watch.
