POYRY PLC Press Release 28 March 2019 12:00pm CET
Gartner has selected Pöyry as one of the Finalists in the 2019 Gartner Communications Awards, under the 'Achievement in Shaping a High Performance Culture' category. Pöyry's transformation story, underlining the company's journey towards a High Performance Organisation in 2018, stood out from hundreds of entries from around the world. The company has been shortlisted alongside some of the biggest names in business from different industries, for its inspiring and engaging communications strategy to build a culture of intrapreneurship and innovation.
Throughout 2018, Pöyry increased its focus on communications to deliver business objectives and its strategy of differentiation, contributing to excellent cultural health and financial performance. A strategic communications plan with clear measures was implemented, focusing on three main approaches: inspiring leadership commitment; engagement of employee virtual networks as partners to co-create cultural norms and values; and engaging intrapreneurs through compelling executive messaging and people-focused storytelling in social media. Pöyry's Award submission included qualitative and quantitative evidence from 2018, showcasing high impact communications and the cultural health survey results.
"We are delighted to be selected as a Finalist in the 2019 Gartner Communications Awards. This is great recognition for every one of our 5500 Pöyry intrapreneurs who have played a vital role in building our High Performance Organisation - where everyone is empowered and energised to think and act as if it were their own company," said Rebecca Bleasdale, Head of Communications for Pöyry PLC. "Pöyry's transformation and turnaround is closely connected with its investment in building an intrapreneurial culture where open, inspiring, and engaging communications have changed cultural norms, mindsets and values, contributing to stronger business performance," she added.
Gartner's Communications Awards have been the leading event for recognising communications initiatives from around the world, since 2011. It is organised by Gartner, the world's leading research and advisory company.
