Public Relations Awards: Want One?
Who doesn’t love a winner?
But in order to be a winner, you’ve got to enter the competition.
According to Darrell Zahorsky (The Strategic Value of Corporate Awards), there are many reasons to put yourself out there, to become an award recipient. When it comes to public relations awards, I agree with him that awards validate the vision and strategy required to meet the highest goals.
They also offer more as he wrote:Expand Public Relations: The free publicity an award-winning business receives can result in more business and new connections. Steven Plochocki, CEO of Insight Health Corp. understands the value of award competitions. Insight Health has filled the corporate lobby trophy case with awards such as: The Associations for Corporate Growth Award, Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award (Orange County) and several Stevie Awards. Plochocki says, “We believe it (business awards) helps validate what we do in the company and enhances our ability to keep good people.”
We know that it also adds credibility. Karen Pierce Gonzalez Public Relations can now add ‘award-winning’ to our credentials. We received an Award of Achievement in Communications from Rotary for our 360-degree efforts to make a Rohnert Park Rotary Club (District 5130) more visible. We not only met a standard, we exceeded it.
