Loop announced as the silver winner of the BE Connected awards

Revium Group were this week announced as the Silver winners of the BE Connected Awards for Engagement App Development of the Year, for their employee engagement app – Loop.

The awards were the first of their kind and celebrate the experts of the brand engagement industry and connecting them to the end user.

The event which took place at the OXO Tower in South Bank, was the second of a two-stage judging process. Stage one consisted of a paper entry, assessed by an industry panel of judges. Stage 2 followed 6 finalists who were shortlisted and asked to show off their entries at the exhibition. The finalist’s apps were discussed with a live audience and a senior panel of industry experts, before a final decision was made.

The big challenge the app answered was how to bring employees closer together whilst expanding – to increase engagement, unlock peer recognition and boost communication across a large, remotely based workforce. Loop increased employee engagement levels to 88% and employee satisfaction levels to 82%. The adoption rate of the engagement app was encouraging too with over 1,000 active users and nearly 13,000 logins since launch.

Brett Davies Director of People added “As a community of businesses that puts enriching experiences through technology at the centre of what we believe in, I’m incredibly proud that our Employee Engagement app has been recognised.”

The app was up against strong competition in the engagement category with brands like Holovis, Instore Field Marketing & Retail7.

Comments on the winners from the judging panel:

“This was a really close call, through both stages of judging, with the two finalists separated by a couple of judge’s votes at the end.”

Stuart Parker Head of Country added “At Retail Marketing we aim to put the employee experiences first using technology effectively… one story at a time. We’re so pleased to have been shortlisted and to now have won silver for our engagement app as it’s the people who are at the centre of what we do”.

Amongst the other category winners were Hammerson & Rolls Royce for the Art at Work Award; and Ikea and Bombay Sapphire for Taste Sensation of the Year.

The awards ceremony is due to take place in March.
