Congratulations to our Marketing and Communications team for their outstanding work on the recent revamp of our internal magazine ‘SRM News’, which picked up a Bronze award at Monday night’s Internal Communications and Engagement Awards.
This achievement at the first annual awards recognises the team’s excellence in internal communications.
Held at the iconic Brewery, in central London, the 2019 event welcomed attendees from a variety of companies and agencies.
Comedian Zoe Lyons was on-hand to host the evening’s proceedings, keeping the audience entertained, while guest presenters announced the winners of a variety of categories, from “Best ongoing commitment to internal communications,” to “Best use of storytelling.”
Recognising SRM News in the ‘Best Internal Publication: Print’ category, the judges said:
“At the heart of Sir Robert McAlpine’s in-house magazine revamp was a desire to break down silos and support a collaborative one-team approach.”
Alan Blayney, Communications Adviser and the magazine’s editor, picked up the award on behalf of the team. He said:
"It’s always encouraging when someone from the outside looks in at what you’re doing and likes what they see. That said, when you’ve got such fantastically talented people working in your business to showcase and such great projects to talk about, it does make it easier.
The magazine wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for all those who feature in it, sharing their knowledge, experience and expertise, so really this award is for them as much as it is for the MarComms team.
We know we can make the magazine better and that’s what we will continue to do. We owe it to our people to provide them with an internal magazine that properly celebrates their achievements and which, in its style and substance, attempts to reflect the quality of their work.”
Andrew Thomas, publisher of Communicate magazine and founder of the Internal Communications and Engagement Awards, added:
“We are delighted to share in the success of tonight’s winners and thank all those who entered for giving us an opportunity to really understand what good looks like and for providing us with case studies and standout examples to help us continue covering this vital discipline.”
