Employee Benefits Awards 2013: Best benefits communications – large employer

Winner: J.P. Morgan

Scheme: Elements

Entered by: Vebnet

This award is designed to recognise an organisation with more than 5,000 employees that has demonstrated an effective and innovative approach to benefits communication, be it through face-to-face, print, social or digital media.

To encourage staff to think about benefits from a fresh perspective, J.P. Morgan created the concept of an origami grandmaster, which it used as a theme throughout its scheme. This enabled it to differentiate scheme communications to employees.


The judges said: “This is the one, above all others, that we will remember in two years’ time. Its use of logos is very fresh.”

The winner said: “We tried to move away from an established way of communicating benefi ts, to engage and entertain.”
