Commenting on the result, Slido CEO Peter Komornik, said: “We are truly honoured to have been recognised in such prestigious company. We work with many clients looking to use our platform to enhance their own internal communications and are grateful to them for the continued learning and growth our relationships give us. We are always striving to improve our own internal communications and team engagement, particularly as the team continues to expand globally and our remote workforce increases. This award really goes to the team who work hard on our internal comms and creative engagement initiatives. I am proud of them all.”
Andrew Thomas, publisher of Communicate magazine and founder of the Internal Communications and Engagement Awards, said: “For the past 10 years Communicate magazine has written about internal communications and employee engagement. We discuss it regularly on #CommsChat, our weekly communications Twitter discussion. We are delighted to now take that to the next level, to benchmark best practice and to celebrate excellence in this important corporate communications field. We are delighted to share in the success of the 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.”
Entries in 19 award categories were judged by an experienced panel of senior internal communications professionals. The judges highlighted Slido’s integrated approach to comms and culture and commented on some more unusual tactics, such as the Slido Book Club initiative, as “creating an interesting place where people want to work”.
The inaugural Internal Communications and Engagement Awards highlights the impact internal communications has on a business, the role of the internal communicator within an organisation and the creative strategies developed to promote an engaged workforce.
