(3 August 2012, Hong Kong) NWS Holdings Limited (“NWS Holdings” or the “Group”; Hong Kong stock code: 659) has won the Silver Award for Internal Communication at the 10th China Golden Awards for Excellence in Public Relations.

The biennial China Golden Awards for Excellence in Public Relations, organized by CIPRA, is considered the most prestigious public relations competition in Mainland China. Entries from Hong Kong and across China were selected through three rounds of screening by a panel made up of respected professionals in the public relations industry. An award presentation ceremony was held in Beijing on 26 July.

With the theme of “Connecting staff members and building brand”, the entry by NWS Holdings outlined an all-round and creative internal communication strategy that combines traditional and online communication channels, as well as creative and diverse staff activities for over 20,000 staff members in the Group. This, together with other accolades received over the years, underlines NWS Holdings’ commitment and best practices in strengthening employee communication, cohesiveness and wellbeing.

Together with the latest award, NWS Holdings has won six awards from CIPRA in the categories of internal communication, community relations and environmental protection for projects dealing with internal communication and corporate citizenship since 2004.

In this year’s competition, New World Development Company Limited garnered the Silver Award for Culture and Sports with its significant achievements in facilitating the glorious return of the Harbour Race last year.
