BRG Communications Wins Silver Stevie® Award in 2017 American Business AwardsSM

Nation’s Premier Business Awards Recognizes Internal Campaign that Honored the Agency’s 15th Anniversary

BRG Communications, a full-service communications agency, was named the winner of a Silver Stevie® Award in the Communications or PR Campaign/Program of the Year – Internal Communications category in The 15th Annual American Business Awards.

“For BRG’s 15th anniversary, I set out to create a campaign that would celebrate our client work, engage BRG employees and recognize local nonprofits,” said Jane Barwis, founder and president of BRG Communications. “This campaign brought together BRG employees and helped them connect with our local community. Cause for a Celebration was truly a memorable way to commemorate the agency’s past and set the tone for its future.”

In honor of BRG Communications’ (BRG) 15th Anniversary, Cause for a Celebration, a three-month internal campaign, was developed for employees. Through the program, each employee identified a local nonprofit to compete for to receive a $15,000 donation from BRG. Cause for a Celebration engaged employees to earn points through Better Living activities, reinforcing BRG’s mission as well as creating a collaborative way for employees to be involved in BRG giving back to the community. The campaign received positive feedback from the American Business Award judges on its goals, engagement, business focus and results. One judge noted, “Brilliant internal communication concept leading to giving back to the community. The activity had a clear focus and healthy competition for a social cause.”

More than 3,600 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories.
