MILTON KEYNES, England, August 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Leading internal communications agency, Headlines, is riding out the economic downturn and celebrating success with record growth for 2012.
While Britain slips back into double-dip recession, the Milton Keynes-based agency has created 12 new jobs and grown its sales by more than 20 per cent in just eight months.
The thriving agency has created new roles in its editorial, creative, digital, commercial and support departments - at levels from director through to account executive.
Despite the economic gloom elsewhere, 2012 is shaping up to be one of the most successful years for Headlines since the company launched 17 years ago.
Managing Director Peter Doherty said: "Ours is a good news story. Our customers see real value in what we do, so we are able to invest and improve the service we offer them
"There is growing recognition of the importance of internal communication and employee engagement - and Headlines' expertise in working with many of the world's leading companies is second to none.
"Our ambition has always been to be the first choice agency for internal communication, and more and more we find clients are actually coming to us.
"Our efforts help other companies to perform better, so if we grow and improve, the economic benefits extend well beyond the immediate jobs we create."
Headlines has already made a significant contribution to the internal communications industry by feeding its experience into the Government-backed Employee Engagement Task Force, which will play a major role in leading Britain to economic recovery.
The task force is led by David MacLeod and Headlines is helping to steer and guide industry leaders as part of a 'Guru Group' - an advisory board of experts. Made up of around 60 leading academics, business leaders, practitioners and think-tanks, the Guru Group will develop ideas and strategies to improve employee engagement.
