PPL wins ‘Company of the Year’ at Employee Engagement Awards 2017

Music licensing company, PPL, is celebrating after picking up the employee engagement 'Company of the Year – Small to Medium Business' award at last week’s Employee Engagement Awards 2017, held at Wembley Stadium.

PPL picked up the Company of the Year award in the small to medium-sized business category, seeing off competition from seven other finalists. PPL was also highly-commended in the Customer Engagement category and nominated for awards in three categories overall. 

Following a thorough internal review, a number of initiatives have been implemented over the past year within PPL. Amongst these is new branding for employee communications and a dedicated staff magazine – Pulse – as well as quarterly events for its 300 staff to share company news, introduce new recruits and involve PPL’s employees in the development of company strategy. 

The Customer Engagement commendation was received on the back of the development of our Quality Assurance process by introducing a more efficient and effective system to monitor and score calls as taken by our staff when dealing with PPL’s members and licensees. 

Kate Reilly, PPL Director of People and Organisational Development commented:  “We are delighted to pick up an award for the second year running and be highly commended at this year’s Employee Engagement Awards. We’re thrilled that the great work of the team has been recognised and want to thank the wider PPL team for their efforts in continuing to improve the way we engage with our staff and consequently PPL’s members and licensees. Employees are the most important part of any business and to win Company of the Year doesn’t get any better! This award is hopefully an indication that we’re doing something right and that people genuinely enjoy working here.”
