With its own heritage of technological innovation, Cintra were delighted to sponsor the ‘Innovation in Social Media or Technology’ Award. Commenting on Cintra’s involvement, CEO Carsten Staehr said: “The North East has an enviable history of innovation. From railways and steam, through to electricity and modern technologies, this region has always punched far above its weight. These awards demonstrate how it continues to do so, showing the tremendous capacity here in the North East, for creating world class solutions from new ways of thinking. We are proud of our region, proud of the CIPD and proud to be a part of this prestigious event.”
Fighting off stiff competition, regional manufacturing company, Roman lifted the trophy for their innovative use of social media in their ‘Project 252’. David Osborne, MD of Roman was delighted with the win: “Project 252 was a fantastic success for us as a business. It brought employees together, helped build relationships with customers and suppliers, and gave a real insight to all our followers, into Roman as a business. It highlighted the fact we are a British manufacturer, along with how we insource rather than outsource as a business. There are so many different aspects to Roman as a business and communicating what each different department does on a daily basis is not always easy. Project 252 helped us break down these barriers. This award is the icing on the cake for us and we are delighted that Project 252 has been recognised as such an innovative success.”
