Innovation Excellence Awards 2021 Launched

The Stationers’ Company has announced that the Innovation Excellence Awards will go ahead this year, following a pause in 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Although businesses continue to face significant challenges, due to Brexit and the demands of the COVID environment, innovation is flourishing and needs to be encouraged and recognised. The Company believes this is the right time to bring back the awards and to give public attention to the amazing achievements of the content and communications
industries it represents.

Jill Jones, Chair of the Awards, says: “Necessity is the mother of invention, and new and exciting developments are already emerging from areas as diverse as online education and disposable paper products. We want to celebrate achievements within the content and communications industries, particularly in these challenging times. 2019 saw a wealth of innovations in service and customer experience, and for the first time, entries focused on
the Internet of Things. We look forward to hearing more about innovations that improve experiences for customers and communities in 2021 and seeing the emergence of new trends.”

Entries for the 2021 Innovation Excellence Awards are encouraged from across the spectrum of businesses that make up the communications and content industries including global, SME and non-profit businesses. Start-ups are welcomed with a new Award this year.

A company can put in entries in more than one category.

In total there are seven Awards:
• Business Process
• Communications and Marketing
• Customer Experience
• Product Design
• Product Performance
• Service design
• Start-ups.

The awards are a terrific opportunity to publicise your company’s creativity and remain free to enter. The closing date is 14th April 2021 (7pm). For more information and an application form, click here. Do contact us directly if you have questions at
