St. Louis, MO
Envolve, an integrated healthcare solutions company, has been named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award in Communications or PR Campaign of the Year - Internal Communications category in the 13th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business.
The Stevie Awards for Women in Business are the world’s top honors for female entrepreneurs, executives, employees and the organizations they run. All individuals and organizations worldwide are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. The 2016 awards received entries from 31 nations and territories.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the awards were presented to winners last night during a dinner event attended by more than 500 people at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. The event was broadcast on Livestream.
Envolve was one of more than 1,400 entries from organizations of all sizes from throughout the world. Stevie Award winners were selected by more than 160 professionals worldwide who participated in the judging process this year.
The Envolve submission focused on its internal brand launch. In August 2015, numerous healthcare companies came together as one brand and company. For this new brand to be successful externally, it had to be received positively internally. The challenge was to engage thousands of multi-shift employees across 60+ nationwide-locations plus thousands of telecommuters. The campaign’s goal was to garner employee participation in rebrand activities, create company pride and engagement, and ensure understanding of the message that we are all “Better Together.” The extensive communications plan included a week-long celebration complete with logo giveaways, employee touch-points from direct and senior management, quizzes and interactive activities to create connections between employees from different legacy companies and ongoing communication.
“Each year we think the quality of achievements portrayed in Stevie-winning nominations couldn’t possibly get any better, and each year the amazing women who are recognized in this program prove us wrong,” said Michael Gallagher, Stevie Awards founder and president. “We are thrilled and humbled to be able to recognize so many outstanding women in the Stevie Awards for Women in Business, and to share the stories of their achievement with the world.”
