Filed under: Intranet and digital workplace awards
One of the reasons we love running the Intranet & Digital Workplace Awards each year is the positive impact it has on the winning teams. Now in their thirteenth year, these are global awards that recognise outstanding contributions to the fields of intranets and digital workplaces. The awards uncover remarkable solutions that deliver business value, sharing them with the wider community.
Typical positive outcomes winners report include:
- a great opportunity for the team to reflect on their own success
- internal recognition from senior leaders, peers and users from right across the organisation
- external recognition from within the intranet and digital workplace “industry”
- career progression – winning an awards is a great thing to put on your CV
- an invitation to speak at intranet and digital workplace conferences from London to Copenhagen to Sydney
- more investment in the intranet and digital workplace, supporting the business case
- more opportunities to collaborate with other teams within the organisation
But don’t take our word for it, here are some testimonials from some of the 2019 winners:
It’s great to get external validation of our work. Intranets are inherently internal facing and difficult to easily benchmark so having independent adjudicators confirm our thinking and implementation is invaluable.
Steve Dalgleish, Applications Manager, Shepherd and Wedderburn
Being recognised by Step Two for innovation in the digital workplace felt like a pat on the back and a tip of the cap, from colleagues whom we respect, after a long, hard journey. It was fantastic to see our team members, who had toiled so relentlessly, recognised publicly in this way. And, it’s always good, from an internal brand perspective, to receive validation and acknowledgement from external experts.
Pete Fields, Platforms & Operations, Stakeholder Relations, Wells Fargo Corp
We’ve worked hard with the Blink team to deliver the platform to thousands of our employees in a relatively short space of time so we’re really pleased to receive this award…We are very proud of our employees across all age groups who made it possible for us to win this award by embracing new technology and becoming internal communicators via Blink.
Lesley Ashman, Director of Technology and Change, Stagecoach
Participation in the competition was something special for me. The prize I received in the competition of such a scale motivates us for further development. I would like to thank the jury that evaluated our work and deemed it deserves recognition. I also thank my team who supports me in the implementation of projects in my everyday work. Determination and hard work have allowed us to reach the success and it is a great honour for us.
Artur Wichlinski, Manager IT, Bank Spoldzielczy Wschowa
We are thrilled to be winning such a prestigious award. We are extremely proud of our intranet being such an appealing tool for our colleagues, many of them lone workers who are actively engaged on this platform and it’s great for us to be recognised in this way.’
Andrea Gordon, Global Head of Communications, Travelex
