Billingshurst Company, PMW Marketing, recognised as one of The Sunday Times Best Places to Work

Billingshurst-based business PMW Marketing is celebrating after being recognised as one of The Sunday Times Best Places to Work, powered by WorkL.

Recognised as one of the top employers in the UK in the small organisation category (10 to 49 employees), the Sussex-based full-service marketing agency, which was founded by MD Peter Sutton 30 years ago, had to meet strict criteria that included completing a staff engagement survey.

This nationwide workplace survey honours and celebrates Britain’s top employers – which number over 500 organisations across industries and sizes – and acknowledges the best workplaces for women, LGBTQIA+ community, disabled employees, ethnic minorities, younger and older workers, and wellbeing.

PMW Marketing achieved a rating of ‘Excellent’ for all six, scoring 93% for empowerment, 91% for job satisfaction, 90% for wellbeing, 89% for both reward & recognition and instilling pride, and 88% for information sharing with an overall engagement score of 90%. The company’s Net Promotor Score (NPS), which is calculated using responses to the question which asks employees whether they would recommend PMW as a workplace to friends and family, was ‘excellent’ at 66 with 76% saying they would actively promote the business.

The Sunday Times Best Places to Work awards survey uses 26 questions from WorkL’s employee engagement survey, developed by behavioural scientists, data analysts, psychologists, business leaders, academics and other independent parties to most accurately monitor employee engagement, wellbeing and discretionary effort in the workplace. To achieve a high overall engagement score, an organisation must score well across WorkL’s six-step framework: 1. Reward and Recognition 2. Instilling Pride 3. Information Sharing 4. Empowerment 5. Wellbeing 6. Job Satisfaction

Peter Sutton, founder and managing director of PMW Marketing, said:

“I am beyond proud of our team and what they do each day to make PMW an inclusive and caring culture that puts people at the heart of everything we do. It is a great honour and huge achievement to be recognised as a top employer by The Sunday Times Best Places to Work, powered by WorkL. As a team, we are always striving to be better, do better and deliver better – whether that’s the environment we work in, or the clients we take care of. This recognition is testament to every individual at PMW who walks through the doors each day and does more than just turn up for work. The whole team without exception puts their all into making our workplace somewhere where creativity, collaboration and camaraderie aren’t just talked about, but are woven into our DNA. Team PMW continues to go beyond what is expected of them and I couldn’t be more pleased to be part of it.”

Chris Longcroft, EVP Publisher, The Times and The Sunday Timessaid:
