Synergy Vision comes sixth in UK's Best Workplaces awards

Agency is the highest ranked med comms firm in the small business category

Synergy VisionLondon-based medical communications agency Synergy Vision has been named one of the UK's Best Workplaces in the annual Great Place to Work awards.

Ranked sixth in the small business category, the agency is the highest-placed healthcare communications firm in its group, which saw only a few firms in the pharmaceutical industry make the cut.

In a statement, the agency said that the achievement was due to the company's focus on four core drivers for workplace happiness: making a difference, working in a positive environment, utilising skills and continuing professional development.

A recent staff survey undertaken by Synergy Vision reported that 96% of its employees felt they have the opportunity to do what they do best every day at work, with the entire team stating that there is someone at the agency who cares about them as an individual and encourages their development.

Held annually, the Great Place to Work awards are founded on the outcomes of the Trust Index employee survey - the most widely used engagement survey in the world - and a culture audit, which includes analysis of the HR and management policies of each company entered.

Other companies operating in the healthcare industry that made the grade this year include firstlight Public Relations and recruitment agency Zenopa, placing 11th and 14th in the small business category, respectively.

In the medium-sized organisation category, Virgo Health ranked 14th - marking its seventh consecutive year inside the top 30 - while communications giant Ketchum placed 50th.

The highest-placed pharmaceutical firms were Bayer and AbbVie, which came 25th and 26th in the large organisations category.
