Pure has been presented with a global award in recognition of its outstanding track record of using its company intranet system to enhance its internal communications.
The regional recruitment firm was crowned the ‘Radically Better Organisation of the Year’ at the annual Jostle Awards. The awards are open to organisations across 159 countries which use Jostle’s People Engagement intranet as a platform to share communications with employees across the business.
The Radically Better Organisation of the Year category is seen as the overall ‘best in show’ award and is presented to organisations which have demonstrated a consistent track record of achieving employee engagement through effective internal communications. Pure received the award for organisations of 200 employees and under and the City of Vaughan in Canada received the award for organisations with more than 200 members of staff.
As Pure is located in four counties across the region, with offices in Cambridge, Chelmsford, Ipswich and Norwich, the Jostle intranet forms an integral function in enhancing employee communication. The judges commented that Pure had demonstrated how the effective use of an internal intranet can be core to an effective employee engagement strategy, especially during periods of organisational growth.
Gill Buchanan, Director at Pure, said: “Jostle has been central to underpinning and supporting our continued focus on making Pure a great place to work, with a motivated and high-achieving team. It’s important for us to have a clear way of communicating internally and we have found Jostle to be a great way of doing this. Every member of staff contributed to this award as they all use the intranet to share news and announcements, host instant group discussions and to access all of our company information.”
Pure has previously won the Jostle Award for ‘Vibrant Culture’ and has also been shortlisted in the category for ‘Highest/Most Consistent Engagement’.
Bev Attfield, Director of Tactical Marketing at Jostle, added: “Reading through the nominations this year was incredibly inspiring. We received essays, photos, and videos from so many different companies in vastly different industries. I was amazed at how these organisations were all able to leverage their Jostle intranet to improve connectivity, culture, and communication in diverse but equally valuable ways.”
