CORPORATE ENGAGEMENT AWARDS CELEBRATES CORPORATE PARTNERSHIPS WITH A PURPOSE
Corporate partnerships, sponsorships and CSR activities are becoming ever more integral to a business’ core operations. This has made the communications surrounding these programmes more challenging, more creative and more important than ever before.
The Corporate Engagement Awards has celebrated the best in the communications of partnerships, sponsorships and CSR since 2011. It has recognised the good that business is doing and the ways in which companies are building a social purpose into their operations.
This year is no different. The Corporate Engagement Awards is open for entries and is looking for projects and programmes that represent the best relationships between businesses and the communities in which they operate. Previous winners include MasterCard, Jaguar, P&G, Channel 4, Primark, Barclays and O2, among others.
Every entry is reviewed by a panel of judges that includes CSR, sustainability, partnership and social purpose experts, allowing for the nuances of each communications programme to be examined fully. Categories range from ‘Best alignment of brand values through a sponsorship activity’ to ‘Best engagement of an internal audience in a CSR programme’ to ‘Best charity, NGO or NFP programme.’
