Most HR executives can't stand employee communication. They talk about "having it" in their portfolio the way the rest of us talk about having an inoperable tumor in our belly.
Most marketing people, on the other hand, love employee communication! They love it so much, they recreate it in their own image, and call it Internal Marketing!
PR people like to do employee communication too. They take it one campaign at a time.
The E2E Communication Awards is for those of us who believe that employee communication is different: from HR, from marketing, from public relations: Another discipline entirely, with separate principles, different techniques and goals all its own.
You wouldn't enter your art project into a science fair. So don't enter your employee communication work into some PR awards.
Peruse the perfectly calibrated categories and the agreeable entry process for the E2E Communication Awards, and you'll know exactly what I'm talking about.
But do it soon. The deadline for entries is April 2.
