We are thrilled to have picked up the sole gold award; the top prize for Best Internal Communications at this year’s Corporate Engagement Awards for our work with Nationwide Building Society.

The Corporate Engagement Awards recognises the most successful and innovative
corporate partnerships and sponsorships, and the communication strategies around those

The winning campaign, ‘The Arthur Webb Challenge Cup’ empowered employees to drive innovation and efficiency from within Nationwide Building Society for employees and members alike.
It has delivered unprecedented business and engagement success for Nationwide. After the first six months of the challenge, teams from across the Society have already delivered over £2m of efficiency benefit with the potential to deliver many £m more over the coming months and years.
It has also become Nationwide’s most engaging internal communications campaign to date, being the first employee engagement campaign to trend as number one on Nationwide’s employee social media hub, NBS Social.

Every single colleague community contributed ideas and more than 609 colleagues are currently involved in shortlisted ideas. 100 of the leadership community are directly involved.

Crafting a positive internal communications narrative for a building society which is trying to encourage innovation and enhance business efficiencies was a challenge we relished to tackle.

Congratulations to all the others shortlisted – see who else won here.
