2016 Top Places to Work in PR: Henson Consulting

Henson Consulting (HC) holds kindness as its central tenet in client interaction and internal communication. Employees are sought out for displaying seven distinctive values: kindness, smarts, creativity, passion, hustle, authenticity and accountability.

As a firm of 32 PR professionals with 31 women on its staff, HC is very proud to serve as an incubator of top female PR talent. Henson’s motto, “act like you can,” supports the firm’s culture of taking the lead on a client project—no matter your age or gender.

In Sept. 2015, HC became nationally certified by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council, reinforcing Henson’s commitment as a 100 percent woman-owned and -operated firm. This certification for women owned businesses verifies that a company is at least 51 percent woman/women-owned. It is the most rigorous and sought-after certification of its kind.

Henson Consulting employees are always encouraged to research and pursue career-enhancing opportunities, and upon request, management approves and funds training sessions that foster employee development. HC staff also holds monthly “Lunch and Learns” to keep the team up-to-speed on the latest developments in various PR areas like writing, digital media, strategic pitching and event planning.
