Porter Novelli named Best Multinational Consultancy to Work For

Brussels, 9 May 2012 – The Holmes Report has named the winners of its annual Best Consultancy to Work For awards, which are based on a survey of more than 5,000 employees from PR agencies across the EMEA region. This year, a record 84 firms participated in the survey. The Holmes Group is dedicated to proving and improving the value of public relations, by providing insight, knowledge and recognition to public relations professionals.

Best Multinational Consultancy to Work For: Porter Novelli

For the second consecutive year, Porter Novelli will take home the award for the Best Multinational Consultancy to Work For in the EMEA region, with employees from around the network of offices in the region praising a “warm and collaborative” culture, “honest and transparent” management, and “strong ethics.”

A team-building exercise for 170 senior staff in Miami last year, regular regional and sub-regional meetings, Christmas parties and summer activities all contribute to strong interoffice cooperation, and a professional development program that includes internal and external trainings, the Porter Novelli University for top performers, as well as a robust exchange program. The firm also offers a variety of flexible options for work-life balance.

Several employees cite the firm’s “Give Something Back” CSR initiative, which allows employees to give a half day of work to volunteer for charities, and encourages local projects through the co-operation with United Fund for Belgium and the Special Olympics.


Porter Novelli honoured in sixth annual International Business Awards


Porter Novelli Brussels has earned a Certificate of Finalist Recognition in the category Communications Campaign of the Year in Europe in The 2009 International Business Awards.  The International Business Awards are the only global, all-encompassing business awards program honoring great performances in business.

Honorees were selected from more than 1,700 entries received from organizations and individuals in more than 30 countries.

Porter Novelli (PN) has been working for the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) for the last 7 years and has seen it grow from a handful of companies to an organization with well over 11,000 members.  During the entire year, PN educated press and consumers on the fact that Bluetooth© wireless technology is more alive than ever after 10 years and developing into new areas.

“We are honored we have earned a Certificate of Finalist Recognition in the International Business Awards”, says Luc Missinne, Managing Director of Porter Novelli Brussels. “The Bluetooth team (Danny Devriendt, Marta Majewska and Dirk Bosmans) has been working very hard to let no journalist escape the news that it was the 10th birthday of Bluetooth wireless technology. By successfully mixing traditional and online communication channels, no journalist on our list was able to escape the message all year long.”

Members of the Awards’ Board of Distinguished Judges & Advisors and their staffs selected International Stevie winners from among the Finalists, which were determined by volunteer judges around the world during two months of preliminary judging.
