Celebrating 20 years in business

Celebrating 20 years in business

At HR Media we love to celebrate! Client successes, award wins, client gains, birthdays, national cake day, you name it we are always the first ones to the celebration party. 

In June this year we have something big to celebrate ourselves - HRM will reach the big two-oh! 

We are incredibly proud of our history and the clients we work and have worked with. Hitting the 20 years’ milestone is a real achievement for any business and one that we intend to mark.

From June onwards you will see further recognition of our 20thanniversary celebrations as we take a look back at key moments during our two decades in business, hear from the team about their careers at HRM and there will be some Throwback Thursday photos as well.

Who knows ... there may even be a special celebration event in the pipeline!

I first came to HRM on a work experience placement as a fresh-faced 17-year-old when the company was relatively new and based at The Workstation. Back then press releases were issued via fax, photographs were hand delivered to media outlets and we only required one pint of milk a day in the office for drinks! 

I never imagined that I would be writing a celebration blog some 17 years later, creating a #HRM20 hashtag and still loving my job every single day.

A lot has happened at HRM HQ and in the PR industry since 1997, not least saying farewell to fax machines and hello to social media.

Our day-to-day work encompasses so much more than press releases 20 years on - from writing and proofing copy for clients’ websites to online and print publications to newsletters to award nominations.

We can also plan, deliver and manage events, large or small, each created from scratch to suit budget and objectives.

And while photography is as important as ever, we’ve welcomed a Video and Creative Manager to help us design, create and deliver high quality video and online content including motion graphics.

We also need a lot more than a pint of milk to keep the expanding team in brews!

But one thing that has remained constant is ensuring that our clients are at the heart of everything we do. It is testament to what HRM has achieved that Westfield Health, the company’s very first client, is still with us today. 

So please join in our celebrations and raise a glass to our 20 years in business – here's to the next 20!
