We’re not the same company we were three years ago.
When we opened for business in 2008, we focused on delivering value to clients and running the business like a business. We built a culture of integrity and compassion into how we operated the team. We also gave ourselves space to tinker with the company and adjust the model. Just because you start with one philosophy doesn’t mean you have to stay with it.
We apply this adapt-and-evolve attitude to everything we do at RH Strategic: how we manage the business, innovate, build capacity and scale. It’s how to avoid stagnation. Today, you see this thinking among emerging brands—often the ones that are on track to be the new generation of leaders in their markets. It’s a big reason why we ranked among Inc. Magazine’s 5000. The ranking compared growth over the past three years, and ours topped 86%. We’re proud of this milestone and the people who helped us achieve it. We’re optimistic about what the future has in store for us, for our clients, and for the PR industry.
Our client roster in 2019 (the base year for Inc. 5000) included some of the biggest public and private companies in the U.S. For our next evolution, we knew we didn’t want to simply maintain our position. We wanted to grow, build capacity and challenge ourselves to create something greater.
We built up a leadership team to help manage and grow the company, we focused on expanding our capacity through talent development programs, and we put in new processes and technology to support these efforts. As a result, we were in the right place to adapt in 2020 when we packed up our laptops and set up our home offices. In spite of the challenges, we brought in a number of major healthcare and cybersecurity accounts—and expanded opportunities in government and technology. We even doubled our staff.
Since Day 1, we’ve focused on telling the stories of innovative companies, but we also share that innovative spirit. We’re always thinking about how innovation impacts our clients, their markets and society. We’re also applying it to our own practice of communications—from technology to talent.
Our success so far has rippled across our clients, partners and employees. We’re not the same company we were three years ago—we’re better.
