MIAMI, May 21, 2012 – rbb Public Relations, a national marketing public relations firm that champions breakout brands, was awarded three Holmes Report SABRE Awards for “Best Agency to Work For,” “Best Small Agency to Work For” and best campaign under the professional service firms category. The announcement was made at the SABRE awards ceremony in New York City in May.

The SABRE awards are presented by The Holmes Group, a leading global public relations publishing operation, which recognizes superior achievement in branding and reputation. The overall “Best Agency to Work For” award is judged by comparing workplaces of the winners of the“Best Agency to Work For” in the small, midsize and large agency categories.

The awards committee selected rbb based on an anonymous survey of the firm’s employees. The survey asked questions in 12 different categories, including quality of management, client service, professional development and compensation.

“Being recognized as the best agency to work for in the nation is a testament to rbb’s employee driven workplace built for and by employees,” said Christine Barney, CEO and managing partner of rbb Public Relations. “We say give people the freedom to create their own work environments and customers will stay, more customers will come and everyone succeeds.”

In the professional services category, rbb received a Gold SABRE award for its Superheroes of HR campaign for a national human resource outsourcing company. The campaign highlighted the company’s unique focus on selling through third party brokers rather than directly. rbb overhauled company communications from the website and logo to sales materials and social media, all with an end goal of positioning brokers as heroes to their clients. We created an email outreach and blog initiative to showcase the company’s thought leadership and toolkit for brokers resulting in significant lead generation. Winners of the Gold SABRE award were chosen based on the research, planning, strategic insight and creativity utilized to obtain maximum results.
