I’m really delighted to say that we have won Gold at the 2020 International Engage Awards – the ceremony that celebrates employee engagement! This long established event is dominated by global brands, such as Coca Cola, Shell, HSBC and NatWest so it’s a great achievement to see Archant recognised as a winner. Our entry, in the Internal Communications category talked about the strength of OUR community – all of us. Judges were impressed at the way everyone rallied around and got through the dark old days of lockdown with such a strong sense of connection. And they loved the way we use Hive to share news, recognise people and have a bit of light relief (Pets Factor and Pizza particularly!) I would like to give a huge shout out to Tom Kay who as you know takes the lead on all our internal comms. I would like to thank him personally as he works extremely hard to drive employee engagement forwards.
