)-- McGrath/Power Public Relations and Communications, Silicon Valley’s most established public relations and digital communications agency, has passed the Worldcom Public Relations Group’s peer review of its client service and overall firm management process. Conducted at the recent Worldcom’s 2014 meeting held in Prague, Czech Republic, the review marks the third time Worldcom’s Silicon Valley partner has exceeded the partnership’s measurement criteria for quality and professionalism.
In the four categories evaluated – strategic approach, client satisfaction, Worldcom partner performance and Worldcom marketing and participation – McGrath/Power scored a total of 92 out of a possible 100 points. All Worldcom partners are judged by a team of senior-level peers who evaluate performance metrics, client evaluations, quality control and management standards necessary to both serve clients at a high level and maintain membership in good standing.
“Worldcom is the only global public relations partnership to require its partners to undergo a peer review of each firm’s management practices to ensure the highest quality performance for clients worldwide,” said Stephanie Paul, Worldcom’s global chair and managing director of the Phillips Group, Brisbane, Australia. “Our partners, who are reviewed every three years, consistently improve in their performance, and our review process was just updated to reflect the industry’s standards for social media and measurement, and to involve client feedback.”
Worldcom is the largest partnership of independent public relations firms in the world, and McGrath/Power is the exclusive Silicon Valley representative for the partnership which includes more than 100 firms in 91 major cities on six continents.
“I’m particularly proud, not only for our agency, but for what high-level peer standards contribute to our industry as a whole,” said Jonathan Bloom, CEO and founding partner of McGrath/Power. “Many of the world’s top firms are working collectively to advance the practice of public relations globally, and Worldcom is in the forefront of the movement. It’s an honor to be part of it.”
