Buck receives three prestigious IABC Gold Quill Awards for strategic employee communications

NEW YORK, June 2, 2022 – Buck, an integrated HR, pensions, and benefits consulting, technology, and administration services firm, today announced that it received three Gold Quill Awards from the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC).

For more than 40 years, IABC has recognized the work of communication professionals in addressing vital issues and inspiring change. The Gold Quill Awards are IABC’s premier awards program and this year’s winners were selected from more than 400 entries from 16 countries.

Buck received three Awards of Merit for work with market-leading clients in the entertainment and defense industries. In the Communication for the Web category, Buck was recognized for developing a comprehensive benefits portal that delivers a highly personalized online experience and for launching a custom benefits microsite that leverages artificial intelligence to enhance employee understanding of their benefits. And in the Publications category, Buck’s highly creative approach for producing annual enrollment benefits guides was recognized.

“Creative, strategic communications have a powerful impact on employees, helping them to recognize the value of their benefits package and enroll in programs that support their personal wellbeing,” said Jill Spielberger, Buck’s Engagement Practice leader. “These awards recognize the breadth of innovative work we are doing together with our clients to help them strengthen the bond with their employees and attract and retain top talent.”

“The talent and impact of this year’s winners are remarkable,” said Maureen Healey, ABC, and Chair of the IABC 2022 Awards Committee. “My deepest thanks to all those who participated as entrants or blue-ribbon panelists. The work they did this year improves our communication community and the wider world.”

The awards will be presented during IABC’s World Conference in New York City on June 28, 2022. For more information on the Gold Quill Awards, including the full list of winners, visit the Gold Quill website.
