Bellmont Partners Named Agency PR Team of the Year Finalist by PR Daily

We talk a lot about the peo­ple of Bell­mont Part­ners, and how our agency cul­ture dri­ves our abil­i­ty to deliv­er excel­lent results for our clients and our community.

We’ve received a lot of atten­tion for the work we do, and we’re extreme­ly proud of that. But today, we’ve been rec­og­nized for the most crit­i­cal foun­da­tion­al ele­ment of what makes Bell­mont Part­ners who we are: our team. Ragan’s and PR Dai­ly named Bell­mont Part­ners a final­ist for Agency PR Team of the Year.

Dur­ing the uncer­tain­ty of the pan­dem­ic, our team stepped up and did some of the best work in our his­to­ry. We start­ed work­ing with 24 new clients over a 12-month peri­od. We gave back to our com­mu­ni­ty (to the tune of 809 dur­ing-work vol­un­teer hours, an equiv­a­lent of $180,000). And we did it all with no employ­ee attri­tion. In fact, we added two full-time employ­ees dur­ing the 15-month peri­od the judges looked at, and since then we’ve added two more people.

Along the way, indi­vid­ual team mem­bers received well-deserved acco­lades, includ­ing Mpls./St. Paul Busi­ness Journal’s Women in Busi­ness, Ragan and PR Daily’s Top Women in Com­mu­ni­ca­tions and AdFed Minnesota’s 32 Under 32. And we’re espe­cial­ly proud that we were named a Best Work­place by Inc. Mag­a­zine and a Best Place to Work by Mpls./St. Paul Busi­ness Jour­nal — both for the third year in a row.

Ear­ly 2020 through mid-2021 was an extreme­ly try­ing time, and this recog­ni­tion is a phe­nom­e­nal reminder that all the work we’ve done to build and main­tain our agency cul­ture and sup­port our peo­ple on both a pro­fes­sion­al and per­son­al lev­el is what helped us weath­er the storm. Con­grat­u­la­tions and thank you to every­body at Bell­mont Part­ners and our amaz­ing clients.

We’ll find out in Decem­ber if we win the top award. But no mat­ter what hap­pens, our team is cer­tain about one thing: We’ve got a lot to celebrate.
