Cohn & Wolfe Named 2016 Best European Network to Work For by The Holmes Report

London – May 9, 2016 – Cohn & Wolfe, a global communications agency, was selected by The Holmes Report as the 2016 Best European Network to Work For. The judges awarded the accolade to Cohn & Wolfe following a comprehensive survey of agency employees from more than 50 agencies throughout the EMEA region. Cohn & Wolfe will receive this prestigious award at the EMEA SABRE Awards in Berlin later this month.
With only one winner per category (European, UK and Continental) chosen from firms across Europe, The Holmes Report’s Best Agencies to Work For list is considered the ultimate benchmark of PR firm culture and workplace performance. The publication specifically called out Cohn & Wolfe’s supportive environment and its strong culture, which together foster great creativity and outstanding client work.
"Culture makes a company, and I am therefore delighted to graciously accept this honour on behalf of the entire Cohn & Wolfe EMEA team," says Scott Wilson, UK CEO & EMEA Managing Director, Cohn & Wolfe. "What makes this award particularly special is the fact that it is mostly determined by the opinions of individual team members. Coming off the back of recent successes at Cannes Young Lions and PRWeek's 30 Under 30, being named ‘Best European Network to Work For’ also provides clear evidence that we are living up to our commitment to attract, retain and develop the best talent. Building a strong culture is hard earned and easily lost, so to be awarded this honour by The Holmes Report at a time of strong growth across our European network is a testament to the strength of the legendary Cohn & Wolfe spirit.”
Cohn & Wolfe employees were quoted in the write-up sharing sentiments including, “I feel challenged and am driven to progress through the agency;” “I have never seen anyone within our team blame or put unneeded pressure on anyone else. It is very much a team attitude here;” and “Everyone – from top management down to junior consultants – takes pride in being nice, kind and supportive.” These comments reinforce the agency’s own staff survey, where 91 percent of employees agreed that Cohn & Wolfe was a fun place to work.
