A look inside the FCPR culture
If you’ve been following along this summer, you may know that we’re in the process of hiring a public relations account manager to join our team.
I’ve enjoyed reaching out to interested candidates for the past couple of weeks and love to address one of the most popular questions I receive during a preliminary phone interview:
What’s your culture like?
I’m proud to answer in the following ways:
- We’re a team – We support each other, motivate our team members, help out when necessary and cheer each person on when it comes to projects and personal/professional successes. Even though we’re all busy, we also take the time to meet as a group each week to learn about what everyone is working on, what they are challenged with and what they’ve accomplished.
- We have a “work hard, play hard” mentality – Whether it’s a special event, a media relations project, a social media initiative or a big writing assignment, each one of us works until the job is done – and done right. The Full Circle PR team knows what it takes to be successful but we also take time to celebrate milestones or big wins – and also encourage each other to spend time doing things outside of work that make us happy.
- We have high expectations – Liza created a document that addresses our secret to success – and we review this information with each new employee. It outlines our commitment to excellence and describes how our individual performances affect the team as a whole. We expect near perfection in written work and client activities – but we know that our team can meet (and exceed) these expectations.
- We do great work – Because we focus on all of the above, I believe this makes our team strive to be the best we can be. We know that there are other agencies out there – in town, down the street and across the nation – that are in the same business we are. But I also know that I would put Full Circle PR’s work – and PR team – against any of these agencies and be proud of what we can accomplish for our clients.
It isn’t often that a brand or company can define their culture or core values. I’m proud to say that Liza and I defined our culture BEFORE we created FCPR – and before we started hiring. And we’ll protect this culture as we move forward and grow in the New Year. We’re thrilled about the future and hope you continue to follow along.
