I’m really pleased to see such a great group of organisations on the shortlist this year. We had a 50% increase in entries making the competition tougher and showing that internal communication continues to grow in importance for businesses and organisations of all shapes and sizes. The awards are a brilliant way to benchmark your work, get recognition and share best practice. We’re looking forward to the party and finding out who will win and be highly commended.
