PSCA 2017 Signature Award Winners Announced
CHICAGO, IL, May 1, 2017 -- The Plan Sponsor Council of America this evening announced the winners of its 2017 Signature Awards at a special presentation leading up to its 70th Annual National Conference, running May 2-3 in its hometown of Chicago, IL at The Drake Hotel. PSCA is the leading association for sponsors of voluntary, employer-based retirement plans in the U.S.
PSCA's Signature Awards recognize excellence in retirement plan communications to both plan sponsors and plan participants. Effective education and communications are key in helping employees understand why saving is important, how much to save, and how to be better prepared for retirement. Campaigns that are creative and go beyond the basics of education are worthy of recognition, as the hard work of the benefits team is helping Americans become more financially secure.
"Award-winning campaigns are those that engage employees and drive action," said Tony Verheyen, PSCA Executive Director. "The winners are examples of what can work when the company values its retirement plan and its employees by striving to make the plan a best-in-class benefit for participants. This year's winners are setting the industry standard for outcome-driven communication and education to help participants achieve financial well-being and a secure retirement."
The 2017 Signature Award competition had 12 categories including increasing participation, digital communications, financial wellness, and others. A judging panel of 24 business leaders, primarily plan sponsors, selected 36 award winners.
