Because saying thank you is important: WHITE Communications presents the WHITE STAR AWARD for outstanding day-to-day teamwork for the 12th time.
Criticism is essential. Especially when something isn’t going well. Then it’s a case of addressing the problems, eliminating the source of trouble and doing it better next time. But what about when things are going really well and there’s even a friendly face behind the successful efforts? “Extraordinary results are due to an extraordinary performance – and therefore extraordinary people. For WHITE, they’re the bright stars in our day-to-day collaboration – our WHITE STARS,” says founder and CEO of WHITE Rupert Wild. That’s why, since 2006, White Communications has been presenting the WHITE STAR AWARD to selected partners, journalists, members of staff and PR & media professionals in recognition of their expertise and team spirit.
And in mid-May, the time had come for the latest round of awards. For the 12th time, Rupert Wild issued an invitation to the WHITE STAR AWARD ceremony at the agency’s premises. “Honouring the professional example you set and saying thank you in proper style is something that really matters to us,” said Rupert Wild. “Success is always the work of humans. And for us, that conviction plays an essential role in establishing a corporate culture of professionals.” That’s why the award winners were personally honoured by the same members of WHITE’s staff that they share such a trust-based, constructive working relationship with.
