What have you done today

…to make you feel proud? What about this week, this year? It’s been a busy old one and traditionally in December people take time to reflect on the previous 12 months and make plans for the upcoming year. (Apologies if you’ve now got the Heather Small song Proud in your head).

December is often the month of business performance reviews too. Are you wracking your brains trying to remember everything you did this year to prepare for appraisals and objectives setting?

This year I joined the CIPR Inside committee (Chartered Institute of Public Relations), helping to shape the future of internal communications. For the first time, CIPR Inside has launched a dedicated set of awards to honour internal communications professionals.

Have you entered yet? The deadline has just been extended to 24 December, so if you are writing up your performance review for this year, why not check out the awards too and see if you can be recognised externally as well as within your company for your hard work? Plus there’s the added bonus of only having to do the thinking once!

I’ve been privy to a number of the planning conversations for the informal awards night at the Hospital Club which is due to be held on 28 February 2013. I think it’s worth putting your hat in the ring for a chance to go along and start 2013 off in an award-winning way.

The cost to enter is £75 per entry and you need to outline what you did, how you did it and what difference it made to your organisation. The categories are:

  • Best employee engagement programme
  • Best change communication programme
  • Best internal social media programme
  • Best international programme (where activities span more than one country)
  • Best agency
  • Best in-house team
  • Best programme from an overseas in-house agency or team
  • Best intranet

Do see the website for everything you need to know and if you’re not already, follow @CIPRInside on Twitter. Best of luck if you are entering the awards, Rachel
