Personnel Today scooped the Campaigner of the Year Award at a prestigious
media ceremony last week in London.
The success of our Refugees in Employment campaign was recognised by a
celebrated panel of judges at The Work Foundation Workworld Media Awards 2002.
Despite stiff competition from Channel 4 News and the Daily Mail, which were
also short listed for the award, Personnel Today landed the prize.
The judges said the campaign "displayed very clearly defined aims supported
by consistent and thorough analysis. An excellent and challenging magazine
campaign which was principled and committed to an end-result".
The Campaigner of the Year Award commends investigative, persuasive,
sustained campaigns with measurable outcomes.
The judges included Guardian columnist Polly Toynbee, general secretary of
the GMB union John Edmonds, deputy chair of the Competition Commission Denise
Kingsmill, and CEO of The Work Foundation Will Hutton.
