WASHINGTON, Dec. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ketchum, a leading global communications consultancy, was recognized for the seventh consecutive year as one of the Top Places to Work in PR by PR News. Ketchum has received this accolade every year since 2010, marking the longest run of any company to be featured on the list. This designation honors the agency's outstanding educational, social and cultural programs that support employees' growth and success.
Winners were selected by PR News editors and an outside panel of industry experts and peers, and honorees received their awards at the Winter Awards Luncheon held at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., last night.

Our innovative talent programs, combined with the enthusiasm and commitment that Ketchum colleagues bring to work, make Ketchum the special place it is today: a place both clients and talent seek out and stay a part of for years."
