We are thrilled to announce that the LifeLabs team has been recognized by the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) with a Gold Quill award for internal communications.

For more than 40 years, the IABC Gold Quill Awards have recognized excellence in business communication and is globally acknowledged as one of the most prestigious awards programs in the industry.

The field was very competitive this year, with almost 700 entries from across 13 countries. We are especially proud to be recognized amongst the list of inspiring global communicators.

“Only exceptional work earns an IABC Gold Quill Award,” said Cindy Schmieg ABC, IABC Fellow, chair of the awards committee.” Each entry is rigorously reviewed by multiple experienced communicators from around the world who are trained in applying IABC’s Global Standard of the Communication Profession. The award winners represent our profession of ethical practitioners contributing to organizational outcomes.”

LifeLabs’ winning entry was focused on the launch of an internal communications tool for operations leaders.  This channel, now known as the Leaders Digest, acts as a solution to eliminate oversaturation and ineffective communications in order to create consistency for operational information delivery.

“The fairly complex/technical and operational nature of the content, plus the considerable volumes involved, could not have been easy to consume before this channel was produced. Very well (and consistently!) done,” said one reviewer.

The 2019 IABC Gold Quill Awards was presented at IABC’s World Conference, held in Vancouver, BC.
