We have just celebrated our first birthday – and what better present to receive than an Award of Excellence in a prestigious national award scheme?
That’s right. Satsuma Group received the accolade and news that it had been shortlisted for Best Magazine in the Institute of Internal Communications National Awards 2022 for its work on publication The Hard Hat for client Anderson, a leading contractor and developer in the East.
The judges were impressed with the magazine statistics which include a readership of 4,500 per edition, more than 10,000 downloads and a 51.2% increase in social media followers.
Satsuma Managing Director Ellen Widdup said: “We are immensely proud of this magazine and the effect it has had on the Anderson business. It’s also incredibly fun to work on.
“Getting shortlisted for a national award is a fantastic achievement for our team and comes exactly a year after we founded the business.
“Our agency is unlike any other in that we work entirely remotely, have staff spread across the UK and have completely flexible working hours. But it’s as a result of this unique set up that we are able to attract the very best talent and it is this talent that delivers such a phenomenal level of work.”
Our team of 13 include the former News Editor of the Evening Standard, former Deputy Features Editor of the Daily Express and social media influencers with a combined Instagram following of 25k.
Our work with Anderson includes PR, social media management and award entries, a website redesign and a newsletter.
Andrew Jay, CEO of Anderson, said he was delighted that The Hard Hat was in the running for such an impressive plaudit.
He said: “Our productive working relationship with Satsuma has led to the creation of a ground-breaking publication – The Hard Hat – that celebrates our business successes and our people. This was an idea I had that became a reality thanks to their hard work.
“They have worked on every edition from its inception – improving and enhancing the product as we evolve and increasing pagination to include the growing number of incredible stories from our team on site to our staff in the office and from our contractors, our clients and our suppliers.
“It’s constantly praised by the thousands of people who read it and I am immensely proud of the magazine and all it stands for.”
