In June communication professionals from across the UK gathered at London’s Park Lane Hilton where nearly 40 awards were handed out by TV presenter Fiona Phillips as the cream of the UK’s IC professionals were recognised.
Monique Hayes, group communications officer, said: “This award means so much to our small, in-house team who put a lot of effort in to keeping Hills’ employees, pensioners, shareholders and friends up to date with what is happening within the company. We were thrilled when we found out that we had been shortlisted and are extremely proud to have been judged as the overall winner in our category.”
The magazine, described by judges as “a really nice reader-friendly magazine with a focus on the business and its people – a publication to be proud of”, was shortlisted alongside similar publications produced by three national companies – Network Rail, TNT Express and Tarmac UK, before being judged as the winner in its category ‘News magazine published up to four times a year’.
