London, United Kingdom – 09 May 2019 – AXON London is proud to announce that the company has again ranked among the top UK Best Workplaces (medium-sized category) by Great Place to Work® UK. As the highest ranked healthcare communications agency in this category, AXON has jumped up one spot to 21 since last year.
This is the fifth year the agency has been recognised. The coveted award celebrates organisations that create high-performing workplaces, and judging is based on honest employee feedback, analysis of the company’s management and evaluation of the company culture.
“At AXON, the secret to our success is our people. We aim to build a culture where our employees feel empowered and nurtured, and we’re extremely proud of the environment we have created together,” said Miranda Dini, Managing Partner of AXON London. “We have grown substantially over the past 5 years, but keeping that family feel is critical to ensuring our expanding team continues to flourish. By living our values every day, we’ve been able to achieve this and are pleased to be recognised for these efforts again this year by Great Place to Work®.”
In 2018, AXON London celebrated 15 years, during which time the agency grew from one person to the 5th largest healthcare communications consultancy in the UK. Notable achievements in 2018 included:
- 18 new hires
- 19 promotions (25% of staff promoted in 2018)
- Internal experts delivered 578 hours of training for employees
- Opened a new Brighton office
- Launched an employee-focused wellbeing programme in order to support employees in positively managing both their own wellbeing, and that of those around them
The UK Best Workplaces Award™ is the latest in a series of awards AXON has received from Great Place to Work®, having previously been recognised as one of the Best Workplaces™ for Women in the UK and receiving the Excellence in Wellbeing recognition. This month, AXON also ranked in the top 5 agencies in PRWeek’s Top 150 UK PR Healthcare Communication Consultancies.
