UNLEASH expanded its digital media output during the pandemic and recruited an experienced editorial team. In under two years later the team has won HR Publication of the Year Award at the WTW Media Awards.

WTW hosted the 17th annual Media Awards and its first in-person event since 2019. The WTW Media Awards celebrate excellence in business journalism and has award categories in insurance and risk, HR & employee benefits, pensions and investment journalism.

John Ball, from awards organiser WTW, kicked off the evening by noting: “I would like to congratulate all of the fantastic winners from this year’s WTW Media Awards and I am delighted that we were able to resume celebrating these successes in-person again.

“The quality of submissions has remained impressively high this year and it is a testament to the resilience of the media industry that it has continued to produce such high-quality, thought-provoking content throughout the past few years. Our judges were impressed by the originality of topics selected by the entrants and the clarity of writing on display. Congratulations to all our winners for raising the bar once more.”

The panel of leading industry experts and journalists found that UNLEASH was “HR & Employee Benefits Publication of the Year 2022”.

“This is a huge achievement for the team and was celebrated mightily shortly afterward,” explained UNLEASH's Jon Kennard.

In addition UNLEASH's senior journalist and talent management lead Allie Nawrat was awarded a high commendation in the “Employee Experience & Wellbeing Journalist of the Year” category. The team couldn’t be more proud of our exceptional colleague.

"I'm so proud of the work our team as done over the last year, particularly Allie Nawrat, our talent and recruitment lead who was also deservedly recognised for the quality of her work. We're just getting started here at UNLEASH - the media side of the business is relatively new, but I can already see us carving out a niche in terms of what we report and how it's reported. There's never a dull moment in this game and we'll be here to cover as much of it as we can," added Jon Kennard.

In mid October UNLEASH WORLD returns to Paris for its 10th anniversary. UNLEASH WORLD is an influential HR Conference and Exhibition and showcases  breakthrough technologies and global work innovators. UNLEASH WORLD: 12-13 October, Paris Convention Centre.
