We are delighted to have passed our recent audit by the Public Relations and Communications Association (PRCA) to retain the Communications Management Standard (CMS).

The PRCA’s CMS is the hallmark of PR excellence in the UK; it combines elements of ‘ISO 9001’ and ‘Investors in People’ with criteria specific to a PR and communications consultancy.

The audit assesses consultancies on processes and procedures across nine business disciplines (leadership and communication; business planning; business improvement; financial management and systems; campaign management; client satisfaction; new business; people management and diversity).

Why CMS accreditation matters to our clients

The PRCA outlines a range of CMS accreditation benefits, including that it demonstrates to clients that the consultancy is:

  • committed to excellence and providing a professional service
  • well-run with correct systems and structures in place
  • committed to staff development.

Certification is reassessed every two years.
