Rhotic’s Social Mobility Initiatives

Joe McGrath, the visionary Founder and CEO of Rhotic Media, commented on the achievement, saying, “Developing a social impact strategy within a bootstrapped, small business demands unwavering resource commitment and unanimous support from the team. Over the past year, our dedicated colleagues have reached out to educational institutions in some of the UK’s most underprivileged regions, paved the way for promising individuals from unconventional backgrounds, and offered pro-bono services on collaborative projects aiming to elevate the social mobility narrative. We take immense pride in spearheading this cause in our industry and pledge to enhance our efforts in the forthcoming year.”

Culture and Employee Development at the Forefront

Elizabeth Pfeuti, Rhotic Media’s Chief Client Officer, shared insights into the company’s ethos: “We place significant value on nurturing our organisational culture and celebrating the progress and accomplishments of our staff members. We firmly believe that our growth trajectory is a testament to the conducive environment that honours the unique skills and diversities of our team.
