At the end of November, our team celebrated together the achievements of the past year with a day of strategic updates and creative workshops, bringing our 50+ team together in-person for the first time since 2019.
Seeing as it was also one week before our third Birthday, celebration was on the agenda with the inaugural Strata employee awards presented in the evening.
Growing as we grow
Awarded by the senior leadership team, The Growth Award recognised our team members that have not only performed outstanding service to our clients but done so whilst reaching key milestones in their personal development.
Izzy Toussaint, Producer, who originally came out of our intern programme, was recognised for her work delivering creative content and production management for our key automotive clients, also receiving The Colleagues Colleague Award, voted by her peers.
Two of our employees that permanently work for clients on secondment, Samantha Murphy, and Laura Emery, were both acknowledged for the unique service they provide on behalf of Strata, delivering solutions for our clients on the ground day-to-day.
Also receiving The Growth Award, Rayna Jeffrey who was appointed Deputy Head of Production earlier this year, has delivered outstanding virtual solutions for a key pharmaceutical client. Constantly reviewing the ongoing programme to ensure it delivers optimum results.
Two Project Coordinators – both of whom previously worked on placement at Strata whist completing their studies – Sophie Austin and Charlotte Bute, have quickly proven how capable they are of working on high profile projects. Sophie was integral to the successful rollout of a Gen-Z student campaign back in September, whilst Charlotte has worked right across the client base to support almost every project in the last few months.
Charlotte also received the employee voted accolade The Get Stuck in Award, acknowledging how Charlotte is always willing to help, and no matter the task, will dive in headfirst to support her colleagues and help drive a project forward.
Both are shining examples of how vital you can be to a team regardless of your experience level.
Outstanding Project Management
Also receiving The Growth Award were Eve Dawson and Gabriella Hey from our Public Engagement Team, and Gina Cundy in the Live Department. All of whom have successfully delivered high profile consumer campaigns within the automotive and public sector industries, proving how capable they are to run complex large-scale projects.
