The winners of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) #InsideStory awards were announced last night at the ZSL London Zoo.
The awards, now in their fifth year, recognise organisations and individuals for their commitment and innovation to the internal communications and employee engagement sectors.
In a year which has seen unprecedented levels of change, never has it been more important to effectively communicate and engage employees.
