Leading life insurer Pru Life UK was named the winner of the Gold Stevie® Award in the Communications or PR campaign-Media Relations category at the 17th Annual International Business Awards® (IBA) held virtually on December 1.
Pru Life UK was recognized for its media campaign around Prudential RideLondon 2019, the world’s largest cycling festival sponsored by Pru Life UK’s parent company Prudential plc.
Philippine media and cyclists were actively engaged in the two-day cycling event, which took place on August 3 and 4, 2019. The campaign generated significant publicity and media coverage, as well as reinforced the company’s brand awareness and commitment to helping consumers lead healthier lives.
Pru Life UK was also recognized for its innovative plan and tactical approach that was thoughtfully executed to meet its business needs and objectives. The campaign was also lauded for achieving impressive return on investment, coupled with strong participation and sustained publicity prior to and throughout the event.
“Taking part in a cycling event reflects Pru Life UK’s focus on health and exercise, and its commitment as a leading life insurer in the Philippines to help people lead more fulfilling lives. The company’s employees who took part in the festival are also to be commended for sharing the overall vision,” said one of the judges of the awards program.
