The most important policy we have at PR Agency One is to create an open and trusting management style and atmosphere. PR agencies can be high pressured environments where certain negative management traits and group cultures can take hold. A control freak manager might be able to account executives to jump through hoops of fire but sooner or later they burn out and leave. Instead we promote a trusting environment based on our company values of respect, accountability, drive and vision.
Our PR Agency One vision:
Our vision is to become a £3million turnover PR agency which is well known and respected for delivering measurable excellence.
PR Agency One values
- Respect: upwards and downwards respect for others and the team and its goals. Everyone is equal as a person no matter what their pay grade. And while most people in our company are managed my someone there is no one whose personal values are greater than someone else’s.
- Accountability: everybody is accountable. Each team member has their own personal objectives. Each person is trusted to do a great job for clients and for the company. We strive to make PR Agency One a fun, and safe place to express ourselves professionally and personally.
- Drive: we all have and demonstrate the drive to succeed. Nothing is too much effort.
- Vision: the company was born out of a desire to do things differently and that requires vision. While some people have more commercial or interpersonal vision than others there is no reason that everyone can’t buy into the vision of others
It is all well and good having corporate vision and values to nurture resilience but a company needs the management team to implement them, throughout the company.
We do this by training managers to consider the mental wellbeing of staff and make sure that they feel free to flourish without fear of bullying or any negative management practices.
We provide job security and try to avoid regular large-scale restructuring or change, this means scheduling work and being on top of time and hours. If we need to implement a new way of doing things then change is followed by lots of communication and training.
