The #insidestory awards, hosted by CIPR Inside, the professional body for internal communicators, was held last night at the Curzon cinema in Soho, London.

Internal communicators from brands and agencies met to celebrate their outstanding internal comms work and to network with their peers.

In its fourth instalment, the #insidestory awards included two new categories, ‘Future Leader’ and ‘Most Innovative Approach to an Internal Communications Challenge’. Jenni Field, CIPR Inside chair, says, “It’s incredibly important to us to keep delivering what the profession needs and encourage new talent into the industry. The Future Leader award aims to help us do just that. It’s clear that our profession is vibrant, exciting and full of some amazing people with brilliant ideas and drive to deliver excellence in their work.”

The winner of the Most Innovative Approach to an Internal Communications Challenge was British Airways for a campaign that engaged its employees during a particularly busy season. Messages of safety, punctuality and exceptional service were brought to life through fictional, illustrated customers. The Future Leader award was won by freelance employee engagement specialist, and previous head of employee engagement & change management UK at Weber Shandwick, Lisa Pantelli.

The awards were held on the evening of 25 February 2016, and were hosted by Jenni Field and Steven Murgatroyd, vice chair at CIPR Inside. View the full list of winners here.
