Pier is known for its communications excellence in its specialist sectors – food and beverage and renewable energy, but this is the first time the agency has been shortlisted in recognition of its culture.

So, what does culture mean to Pier?

Difficult to define and trickier to crack, we believe that meaningful culture evolves over time, from collective action and passion. At Pier, it manifests in daily wellbeing check-ins, in how we treat each other both as a team and as individuals, in how we interact with our clients and the importance we place on professional and personal development.

We’re a supportive, friendly team who go the extra mile to deliver campaigns and projects we’re genuinely proud of. But, we’re also mindful that everyone has dreams, commitments and ambitions outside of their career, which is why we are flexible with hours, locations and everything in between.

Over the past 12 months, we’ve:

  • Boosted our benefits package to include private healthcare insurance
  • Increased our investment in training, including industry qualifications, Line Manager training and Equality, Diversity and Inclusion training
  • Strengthened our commitment to the environment with a pledge to donate 1% of profit to fighting climate change and declared our mission to achieve B-Corp status

Amy Bendall is Pier’s managing director. She comments: “Everything we do is rooted in meaning. Whether that’s the work we deliver for our clients, particularly in the renewable energy sector, our commitment to sustainability or how we look after our team, we want to make a positive impact.

“At the heart of it all is our people. We want to run a business built on a foundation that makes working for Pier a fulfilling and rewarding experience. For us that means exciting work, fair packages, a strong sense of community, purpose and friendship.

“We entered the UK Company Culture Awards to see whether our commitment to culture would stand-up to scrutiny from the experts. Having the validation is very rewarding and the whole team has been excited to see Pier’s commitment to culture recognised in this way.”
