It’s official: We’re one of The Sunday Times Best Places to Work

We’re celebrating after being recognised as one of The Sunday Times Best Places to Work, powered by WorkL.

To be recognised as one of the top employers in the UK in the small organisation category (10 to 49 employees), we 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.

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, our founder and managing director 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 Times, said:

“All organisations are only as good as the people they employ and retain. The Sunday Times Best Places to Work awards recognise companies that are innovating to create an engaged and fulfilling working environment for all and in so doing they are creating the best possible platform for business success. To be named on The Sunday Times Best Places to Work list is a true recognition of excellence and I congratulate those organisations who made the grade this year.”

Peter Sutton -
Managing Director

Driven by the desire to create the very best user experience for clients, Peter founded PMW almost 30 years ago, bringing with him a wealth of experience in the media and marketing industry.

Peter has led the creative team on numerous high-profile projects with clients including Sony, Born Free, British Heart Foundation, and Disney, to name but a few.

His hard work and dedication to clients has led to incredible results, winning acclaim and awards along the way. The small business he created now employs more than 30 staff and is a great source of pride to Peter.

He cites working on a millennium project to create the world’s largest time vault and organising Dame Vera Lynn’s 100th birthday celebrations among the highlights of his distinguished career.

A former athlete – excelling at both discus and shotput – these days dad of two Peter prefers to explore the countryside with his wife, Sandra, and their two labs, Oscar and Ash. He still finds time to complete the odd challenge though, taking on the gruelling Three Peaks and a blister-busting 100k non-stop walk from Putney to Henley, raising thousands of pounds for charity.
